What is a vintage steer?

Tannin tanning using natural materials is said to have a texture that becomes more glossy the more it is used.

Chrome tanning, on the other hand, does not have as much texture as tannin, but it is soft, strong, water resistant and suitable for clothing. In order to achieve both of these, "Vintage Steer" has established "de-chromium/mixed tanning" in which half of the chromium component is removed after chrome tanning, and tannin tanning is performed.

You can feel the sense of unity that spreads to your body from the first time you wear it, and the suppleness and sitting that leave the waist peculiar to tannin. It is characterized by the squeaking sound that is unique to tannin tanning, which you can hear when you try it on.

It has a tasteful finish that reproduces the ancient teachings of leather to shape the habits of the body.
