Seems Carmina cognac varies in shade because the Anderson jumper boot are much darker..

post #17312 of 31653
I wouldn't be surprised if it does. I'd really compare the cognac color of my boots with Ravello. The Anderson and the Fitzgerald do both look darker on the EP site and in the photos of them that people post here. I've never seen them in person.

There's no place like home, and there's nothing like Epaulet Donegal and Carmina loveliness. Computer crashed so no real photos, just self iPhone shots.

I'm really curious to know what everybody is planning on doing with their denim trousers. I'm not sure how I should have them tailored, like I do my rivet chino's or with a cuff of some sort like all of my walt trousers.

All of the Walt Denim trousers are already washed and preshrunk, so you can get them tailored straight away. Just stick to cold wash/hang dry on them.

Yes, all shell cordovan from Horween varies quite a bit from one batch to the other. Saddle ranges from dark tan to butterscotch, Cognac goes from dark brown to a Ravello-ish medium brown. It's pretty variable.

As someone who has photographed a TON of shell cordovan stuff, I can also tell you that shell is reflective and looks very different according to (1) the light source and (2) your monitor or screen. Frank's boots look a bit lighter than they actually are due to the color balance of the shot. His cords are a medium-deep brick red, and they read as a burnt orange, which meant that the medium brown shade of shell skewed more towards a tan.

Looks like some ruby shell captoe boots. Awesome! Did you still get the MTO ruby shells as well?
post #17323 of 31653
^I'm going to guess burgundy shell, just to make things interesting. Whatever color, they are beautiful. This Carmina thing doesn't stop getting better.

Edit: Pastor wins the cigar. Ruby it is.

Just saw that these boots have been posted on the Epaulet website. Man, I kinda wish I hadn't had ordered the MTO ruby shell cap toes. I can't justify both.
post #17325 of 31653
Glad my size in those Ruby boots isn't available, I really don't have the cash to justify getting those right now. But they are amazing.
