Very nice! I've thought about a similar make up myself. I would love to see more detailed pictures when you get a chance!Sadly I have yet to see such a color from StC. Vintage Rioja is one of my favorite colors as well. The closest I could get was asking for darker 511 it came out okay but it was still more like a dark Cherry, I like it alright but it's no Rioja . I've thought about asking if they can make a "midnight" 511 like they've done with the color navy...
Wow, I'm still on this site 3 years later.  I'm not sure how that makes me feel!  I can now say that metal toe taps do not set off metal detectors at work or the airport--in the pre-check line. @Hardboiled, I believe the Aldens pictured are the 907s.  I have only ever had to take them off on the hill when they set off the detectors entering some Congressional office building.  I haven't made that mistake again.  At my office you do not have to take your shoes off if they...
 I think I'll do the same during my trip to Japan.  I have to admit I thought Edoya was the brand name... Maybe it won't be as easy to find as I thought.   All that being said, I can't say that I've ever had trouble with my normal brush.
It does look great, however it doesn't look as coarse as some of the other shrunken leather's I've seen.  Do they offer it in different...leathers?  I am also a half size down from G&G like Roger and Patrick.   However as far as fit, I have very wide feet so I've had to go the personalized last route and--with time, trial, and some error--it has turn out to be excellent.  I've also not ventured beyond the classic last for now.  
If you were taking votes mine would be for the 633!I have also seen this model online which looks like a cross between the two.In my next order will be the model in that photo or the 633, in the pictured calf.Great looking ghillie @SoGent! I look forward to seeing pic of them out in the wild.
Anyone have information on the new linen socks from Sozzy?     What is the difference vs. the fil d'ecosse cotton socks?  Stronger, lighter, or warmer?     Thank you in advance!
The most recent pair was the 581--Des Voeux in CRU 609.  I think it's a versatile color that I plan to use again, particularly because I do not prefer black shoes.   Next I'm looking at a navy suede (BCK) loafer (533/533x) for the summer, and maybe a split toe derby (508/633) in Russian Calf?   What about you?  Any new St.C orders/ideas on the horizon?  
       Thank you all very much!  I'm looking forward to my next order! 
My newest addition. Thanks to @RedDevil10 at the The Armoury
I think it looks great!  I usually wear button closed and  your pics don't show any of the lapel "billowing" that comes with tightness around the chest/lats.    Love my fur Dents! These are noticeably more insulating than the "cashmere lined" lot that I've had before.   I'm planning to get a new pair of Dents for the next season.  NMWA don't let me down!
