Thanks.I think 633 works well with many different kinds of leather, as @BColl_Has_Too_Many_Shoes pointed out. So choice of leather depends on your personal taste, the kind of clothes you want to wear them with and the way you'll be using them. Do you plan to wear them in a mostly formal/business context or in a casual setting? Are you looking for a leather that's pretty hard wearing and can withstand bad weather conditions? St C offers a huge array of different leathers with very different characteristics so it won't be an easy choice... I own shoes in many of the leathers that are offered by St C (of course not all of them are St C but most of these leathers are also used by other makers - except the exotics) so if you want to know more about a particular leather just give a shout.
I work in tech in the Bay Area. I generally wear jeans, with a more formal shirt and a sports coat. My shoes are Trickers, C&J, EG. I travel a lot so get exposed to all sorts of different weather.
For this pair I envision wearing them in dry, warm environment (California for most of the year), so I'm not worried about the robustness of the upper. I'm assuming that I'll go with a leather sole, or rubber with a leather mid-sole.
I hope this provides context. Any additional insight would be awesome.
