 It is indeed Steed MTM. I'll shoot you a PM with the details. Thanks, Stitchy!
No red undertone. The photos came out darker than the actual color. I tried to adjust them but couldn't get the color accurate--cloudy day, office window, etc. The first spoilered photo is closer.   I'd say Bolet is pretty much an ideal mid-dark brown, the kind of color you imagine when you think of a brown business shoe.

 I replied before reading to the end.  I think both Steed MTM and Formosa RTW/MTM offer great value (relatively, of course!).
