I got the same email. I have a couple of pairs of Berwick in leather and suede and they are good value.
Cordovan is interesting – but the styles are not.
A long wing brogue, a plain cap and a Yuma style loafer would have been great. Traditional cordovan styles.
The Berwick range highlights the limitations of cordovan. It is difficult to work with and thus make a sleek shoe.
I would prefer a decent calf leather and a more attractive last in the styles which they have offered.
