Shell likewise ages flawlessly after some time, patinating unmistakably. Our scope of Model 2 ties in shell cordovan are made utilizing shell from Comipel, an Italian tannery known for creating probably the best calfskin around. It’s an intense material to work with, and coloring it is real very troublesome so it’s regularly restricted to a limited scope of tones. Notwithstanding our scope of exemplary tans, tans, and blacks, we worked with Comipel to create two tones for our shop, Oceano and Emerald, which are lively blues and greens, respectively.
