The Ultimate Vass (Footwear) Thread (Pictures, reviews, sizing, etc...) - Page 1327

post #19891 of 20248

I have yet to see pictures that accurately show Oxblood in all of it's glory. FOr me, it is the best Vass color and despite being dubious about it when ordering, once I received them they immediately became my favorite. The below pictures show dark brown and oxblood side by side in both direct sunlight and shadow. Neither shows how great they are. And yes, I am aware the oxblood needs a polish...

Thank you, kind sirs.

I'll probably go with the oxblood, since it is more subtle and business appropriate.

Sure Vass burgundy is a wonderful shade, but also rather showy and not the best option for a guy who doesn't want to get noticed.

Is there a difference between their Burgundy and Bordeaux colour, or it's the same colour basically with two different names?

I really only know of Oxblood and Bordeaux as their two "red" colours.

post #19896 of 20248

Yes, me too .. It's just because some of the members are referring to the Bordeaux as Burgundy that I thought it could be some third shade of a reddish colour .. 

post #19897 of 20248

^ Well, there is also Red Cognac, so there is a third "red" tone technically. Bordeaux and burgundy are the same color in Vass-speak.

This is pretty close, and much better than my pictures. With that said, I still dont think these do Oxblood justice. Clearly its my favorite color from Vass.

Ah yes - how could I forget!  Okay, so for the sake of clarity:

To be clear, oxblood is different from burgundy (bordeaux) correct?

Yes, the former is much darker

Next to the already mentioned bordeaux, burgundy and red cognac, there is also the much more subtle 6125 cognac, sometimes also called 'dark cognac'.

This picture (courtesy of watchidiot) show the different colors again:



Red cognac, Cognac I, Cognac II, 6319 Cognac, Antique Cognac, 6125 Cognac, Bordeaux, Oxblood, Brown, Black

I will post a picture of my own sample book tomorrow!

Lol Vass has like 15 shades of "Cognac".  Need to get a little more creative in their descriptions. :nodding:   That 6125 Cognac looks interesting, but then the Oxblood looks straight up purple on my screen and I know that's not the case in real life.

post #19904 of 20248

Seems like the bordeaux varies a lot from batch to batch .. 

This one is a lovely shade: 



while this one looks a lot more "girlish" and flashy .. Or it could be the light/ post processing playing games with my eyes ..

That's correct, the colors in the picture are definitely off! I'll post a better picture tomorow, both under studio light and outdoors.
