Just saw your post as I was heading out the door. Here is a quick snap. I will try and get some better pictures later.From my experience, this is not normal at all. I just rec'd four pairs within the last four weeks, posted them here someplace, and all of them arrived in perfect pristine condition. I am curious about the resolution, so please keep us posted on how this works out with StC, if you don't mind.
Crust leather is a weird animal, so I can see you missing that scratch. When I do MTO, I roll right past crust with ease since there are so many other leathers from which to choose. Is this a MTO? Also, Maybe you can show pictures of the entire shoe.
Yes, they are MTO on my (developing) personal last. Fit is satisfactory, and definitely way better than either of my trial shoes.
Here are the specs
Oxford, toe box, top line, counter and vamp brogueing – Mod. 661,
Black crust calf leather – CRU 999,
Hand welted leather sole, 8mm – GE8,
Black sole and edge,
Hollowed shoe trees – Maple,
