I was thinking a lizard suit, snakeskin shirt, tortise cuff links, and ostrich tie. Couldn't find anyplace to put the water buffalo--and no, it's not going there!

Just picked up these Crockett & Jones today. Can anyone tell me what the skin is? At first I thought it was some sort of treated leather, but this has veins and a different "feel" to it.

Thanks, Tomasso...but I was hoping it was Yak.
Now, what about these...I was raised in IL, but I'm not sure if your ride these or milk them. I bought them because:
1. I was too impatient to wait for the Horween tanning process;
2. They went really well with my jockey helmet, harness, and silks;
3. They're 11.5 aaa with aaaaa heels with some guys name in them;
4. It's a cry to my wife for help with my addiction.

Now that I have them, tell me...are they horse or cow???

I agree with Cookie 100%.

Most likely some kind of Bison/ Buffalo.

Here are my Nunn Bush Water Bison

I like the way you think, friend. C&J did some wonderful work with the more exotic leathers, as did Church's. Great find!

I'm gonna have a drink... or 3, then log back on later to comment.

In the meantime, they're pony hair...

Somewhat more popular on womens' shoes now-a-days, but here's a Gucci mens' pair...

In the "old days", they were somewhat popular for cowboy boots...

Wow!! Time and again I keep cming back to page 150 of General Attire and Accoutrements.Those gorgeous Hornback Lizard shoes,a true work of Art.I mean I think that they belong in a museum.I had a pair of Alligator Penny Loafers (Johnston Murphy)some years ago,but not of the same calibre of Deluxe Exotic Leather that you see on these shoes.Treasure them...John Titcombe.

Peals are a great deal when they're on annual clearance. I think I paid something like $150 (with additional BB discount code) for the bucks that Orgetorix is sporting above.

Yep, that's about what I paid. They'd been clearanced down to around $200 and I got last weekend's 25% Friends & Family discount on top. They'd disappeared from the website, but my guy at BB tracked down one of the last pairs left in my size.

And I agree - when they're on clearance, Peals are about the best deal to be had for new shoes. They're made (IMO) to a far higher standard than AEs or Aldens, but can be had for half of what those cost, if you're patient.

Wheterh C&J made or Alfred Sargent they are a higher spec - no doubt about it.

I like the white suede. Clean look to be sure. I couldn't handle that kind of responsibility, though. Within an hour, I'd spill a cup of coffee on them, or one of my kids would step on them.
