Other than the color, are there any differences or advantages to cordovans? While I'm on the subject, what are the benefits to using Carnolians over Italians? I see most of the people on the forum seem to use Carnolians, but most of my books say to stick to I-talians. Caucasians or Russians? Sorry to have such a general post, but I guess I have to learn sometime.
