I don't have the snuff, but I have the tobacco in an adelaide. The tobacco definitely has a subtle orange tinge, but I love them and consider them the most beautiful shoes I've ever owned. The below website picture is completely color-correct.
@Despos, which reinforces my point that if I had worked with you instead of cheaping out on internet MTM, you would have steered me clear of this mistake. I have learned the time-honored lesson that the cheap man pays the most in the end.
@ericgereghty, here they are against a white door, which may help you gauge the color. Other than the hideous pocket problem, they have the potential to be nice trousers for Dallas in July and August. They are very lightweight but don't seem flimsy or delicate. The creases are from shipping.
