Two totally different shoes. Whether you want one vs. the other depends on how you'd wear them. Suede would be a nice choice if you would wear it in the spring/summer, but at least one pair of longwings is essential.
Aw man... thought ebony latigo on the half-japanese was perfect.
Personally, I'd have to bow out if the make went with a tan.
I have a pair of chicago tan latigo boots (it's kinda between a tan and red dog in color)... there's nothing wrong with it, but it's not an everyday color I reach for. I'd rather go for a classic, versatile dark brown.
