This leather is incredible to the touch, feel and smell. It has an amazing pull-up effect as well. Our Oxford Xcel leather is very comparable to Horween Chrome Excel. We believe that the quality is just as good but with a lower price tag.
The process used to create this leather infuses the hides with oil, wax and tallow mixture that provides the leather with an unmatched durability and feel. They are then stained with an aniline dye which creates a richly colored leather with a beautiful pull-up effect. This full grain leather holds up well to the elements and resists hardening for generations.
