    My pleasure :) the shell is from Compel in Italy. It is quite thick and substantial. You would very much like the quality

    If these are your first cordovan's, then you have chosen wisely!!! [​IMG]

    Here is a recent shot of my Carmina 922's:

    Is the comipel shell what they call "Italian cordovan"? And how does it perform in the rain?

    Oh, amazing color on those trickers btw!

    Holy cow! It's El Argentino!!! I haven't seen you on in forever. Hope all is well!

    I would be interested in details right now, but can't make a commitment right now.

    Those green SW's are sick for real. [​IMG]

    I almost took out a mortgage on my house to get the 922's in every color shell.
