Funny, I would have said the opposite. The leather of my StCs seems thicker than G&G, Cleverly, EG that I have had.@Patrick1053.. I don't have crust leather from StC (2 Russ Horweens, 2 Blk Ani, 1 suede), but I can say that the vamp area is on the thinner side (regardless of leather type). I remember handling the crust at several trunk shows, and when they had their atelier here in NY.
StC’s uses a thin crust leather (I find the crust still thinner than the other leathers) which they themselves dye, unlike say pre-dyed crust which others use. So when you have house dyed crust, a thin leather (which creases like a mothereffer regardless of maker), and a high tension area like the vamp, you will have visible creasing and discoloring.
Comes part and parcel with StC and the crust leather option.
I have only one pair in aniline. It is not particularly soft, not at all like Cleverly or some others. Creasing seems average to me.thank you. What is there aniline like? Would you describe it as particularly soft? And how does it crease?
