Did someone mention something about light color?:
The Falkirks compared to my other "tan" shoes:
Interestingly they were burnished more than I thought Edwardian would be like but I guess I'll need to work some magic to lighten things up. The leather on these are much better than the leather used on my dark oak Shannons (the latter were much firmer/stiffer...more than my usual EG expectations).
