I have a Kleber and Satan, I mean, Casanova, in bergeronette:

An Arca in aubergine:

And the rest are in lie de vin, my favorite color haha (Bucy, Arca and Cocteau posted previously):

WOW very nice collection. Any favorite? I am thinking of Arca in black (guess that is your favorite since you have 2 with third on the way wink.gif

Thanks. I have another Arca on the way - in dark navy / matte croc. Love the Arca!

My two cents worth is that you should get a color from Corthay OTHER THAN black. One of Corthay's strengths is its otherworldly coloring and patination - and you miss a lot of that if the base is black calf.

Colors with lots of black in it - like lie de vin or aubergine or navy - via patination/burnishing look black anyway at first glance or in dark lighting!

Oh. Forgot I have Vendomes in olive. These look brown at first glance.

Very nice, funny thing you say that about black, after looking Arca in aubergine I'm starting to think that is the way to go. Please post pic of the new Arca once you get it. Thx for the input

AUBERGINE!

Only potential drawback of such a unique (or uncommon) color is belt matching. Either get a similar hue, order a Corthay aubergine belt - or wear the shoes when you're wearing pants that don't have belt loops. I end up wearing my aubergine Arcas when I'm in suits with side tabs.

these look great on you - who is the maker?

your other shoes by Corthay crease in a funny manner - makes me think that they do not fit perfectly - I think you should try Corthay Bespoke.

I also really like the color of that cordovan...


I would like to have a pair of casual fall shoes made in this cordovan...something not so pointy though as a Corthay...

^ the new C&J harrogate monk that was released looks awesome. Reminds me of the JL William, not as pointy as no frills (altought I'm in love nonetheless)

Anyone try the new Arca Stream?
post #222 of 223
I had to google that. Interesting design but I definitely like the original better. Also the dark green looks good but probably better on other models than Arca.
