Is there a reason the listing doesn’t state that the outer material is shell cordovan? That’s what the stamp seems to suggest.

Massdrop, please confirm if this is shell cordovan or not. If not, very misleading. If so, what a deal.

I found this tweet from the tannery which strengthens the suggestion that this is shell cordovan: https://mobile.twitter.com/tws_tannery/status/1014784865773015040 But if so, it is baffling that the listing doesn’t outright say so, since that would be a massive selling point. Definitely calls for clarification.

Sorry for the wait here. Yes - this is Thomas Ware & Sons pit processed Cordovan Shell outer and Italian Full-grain Veg-Tanned inner. The plus here is the unique Thomas Ware & Sons tannery pit process which is an older, more times-taking method that takes in excess of 15 months.  Check out their website: http://thomasware.co.uk/our-leather-process/ This is a very special leather, arguably even more luxe & durable most cordovans.

That’s great to hear. Honestly, this should be in the description (and indeed the title)—it would attract a lot more buyers!
