It's a beautiful shade of brown with very subtle darkening in the right places that unfortunately does not come through in my pictures. (2) Other makers have given me narrower waists with a more pronounced fiddle-back (3) The workmanship is very meticulous with stitching that seems finer than I'm used to (4) I finally have a pair of oxfords where the facings line up perfectly...
