    Suggests based on what knowledge? To me it looks like it was part of the shell.

    There are brands that you can go to that would meet your needs. Such as EG or Rider Boot Co. :nodding:

    It is great to meet someone who knows so much. Can you tell me how much they have expanded the amount of employees or the facilities?

    Rider stopped making cordovan shoes (or that's what he told me last time I saw him and talked to him). Too much trouble getting shell from Horween.

    I was simply speculating that straight lines are less common in nature.

    Its possible they are an old model or that he restarted with cordovan. He seemed frustrated at the time. I have a black bal cordovan boot from them, I rarely wear it but I have found it to be really useful and good looking when I do

    Ryden, perhaps you should practice what you preach.

    I am not even sure that is true. But regardless there could be man made reasons for the lines not caused by Horween or Alden. From my understanding the majority of these horses are work horses so maybe something inherent in that, or possibly at the point of slaughter. There are so many variables that I have a hard time standing by when someone makes accusations based on assumptions.
