Thank you. How is Bordeaux? More reddish or brownish? If anyone have seen the Vintage Rioja that G&G uses, how does Vass' Bordeaux compare to it?

[/quote] this is beyond me, sorry. but I have heard that the cordo bordeaux and the calf are different with the cordo more darker...

I see, thank you. But the shoe in the picture I provided isn't cordo, right? Maybe someone can provide Bordeaux-coloured shoes from Vass in calf and cordovan?

For the fun of it I'm going to guess - looks cordo to me, just because of the different shades/pigmentation. To me it could be some sort of polish/patina magic which is hard for me to decipher. Please remember - I could be totally off!

Not exactly your question because I don't own (or have seen) Vass bordeaux cordovan but maybe this image I posted a few weeks ago might help a bit. The Vass at 3 (scothgrain) ,5 and 10 o clock are all Bordeaux, the vass at 9 o clock is 6125 dark cognag which is basically another burgundy and that's why I don't particularly like it that much (the color), the Alden #8 shell at 1 o clock and the Allen Edmonds merlot at 7 are darker than burgundy and are closer to Vass oxblood which is a darker red almost black and also closer to G&G rioja you mentioned.

FWIW my favorite Vass color is antic cognac (not pictured), is a beautiful middle brown, I dont have photos available now but you can find some good ones on this thread.

One shouldn't need to be a podiatrist or cobbler to order a pair of shoes with a reasonable expectation that they'll fit. Especially if he already has a pair in the same size and last.

Pedantry 101.

I see, thank you. I guess I'll have to look further into it.

Wow, great picture and thank you for your input. Seems like Vass have many reddish colours. I love G&Gs Vintage Rioja because it's not all to reddish, it's like a subtle red colour. Seems like Vass' Bordeaux and Oxblood is to red, the latter being the one closest to G&Gs version (Vintage Rioja). Didn't know that the 6125 Cognac was that red (9 o'clock shoe), that's quiet reddish I may say. I guess one would have to see the colours in person to decide or stick to the conservative colours of black, brown and mid-brown (antique cognac).

Is that really the 6125? It looks a lot different from these pictures:

232

263

I believe the colours are from L to R Dark Brown, Antique Cognac, Dark Cognac and 6319 Cognac

(not my pictures, its from somewhere in this thread but I forget who it was who posted it)

6125 dark cognac looks very different depending on the light. In some light it's very red, in others, not.

Yep, but I figure that's inevitable with whiskey shell... the chances of you getting a perfectly smooth pair that don't show imperfections in a shade like Whiskey are incredibly low

Looks great! May I ask how many times you've used them during the year?
