Interesting but for my money I would want something a little more classical, elegant and sublime.

So I cast my vote as:

Z...I recently saw these in the flesh at the JL Shop, NYC and they just didn't do it for me. I opted for a more classic version of the shoe in the antique walnut. But don't let me stop you.

Now you're talking! I just picked up a pair of Sutton's in Parisian brown. I'll be posting pictures soon.

Sweeet!! Not for wearing to a business meeting, but I'd insist on changing the rule about no brown after 6pm if I owned those.

I really like the two-tone Vintage 2005. I think they look a lot BETTER in person than on the picture you posted zjpj. I own the Sutton and I love it, but I'd definitely say that the two-tone Vintage 2005 is more elegant. The two colors don't contrast much, making the shoe much subtler than any proper spectator shoe.

You get a bespoke belt that's got both tones in it.

I wonder what that will look like...

There you go Z. Two folks who have seen the shoe in person and came away with completely opposite points of view. You'll have to decide for yourself.

We do agree on the Sutton being wonderful, though.
