Finally I have Cordovan and Stingray on my MTO pages. Stingray in darker colours for now because Tony Gaziano tells me that these are usually easier to find than lighter or brighter colours and because of the clicking and closing with many styles being impossible with Stingray it is only offered for the wholecut models Sinatra and Cooper (Deco).

G&G had to remove the polish that was originally applied and then create the darker finish.

The color wasn't a G&G standard option. The shoes left the G&G factory as Vintage Cherry , however, they were re finished to this color as a special request from the client through Bespoke-England to change the Vintage Cherry to a deeper, darker color. I renamed it "Dark Cherry". It did look very similar to Vintage Rioja but it had strong undertones of the cherry and when I held them next to a pair of vintage rioja shoes there was a definite difference. It's a truly...
