Here are some photos of the rust steep twill, in an effort to show the color in the wild in two different lightings. Loafers are #8 and, yes, the socks are pink, for comparison. It's really as much brown to my eye as it is red, and sometimes it looks deep purple. I think it is both interesting and very wearable. The fabric itself is outstanding. Heavy and soft. Recommended.

Looks great! Finally pulled the trigger on these the other night. Can't wait!
