And thanks to the great folks at Rancourt & Co. Shoecrafters in Lewiston for making this happen!
Working in the factory yesterday, and seeing the Dk Cognac (the Natural was finished first and I have those with me….will be available today) in stitching, really showed the extra work that goes into doing a handsewn moc in Shell Cordovan. The stitching time takes roughly 70% longer when working with Shell than Calfskin, and Ronny (pictured) has dedicated his days recently to strictly working on Steven’s order. Shell Cordovan is a great leather – but also requires great patience and long experience to handsew accurately and with a good result. This was a good result. Thanks Man! Guiness on me next visit -
