Those are amazing Mike!
Cross post from the MTO thread:
I'll ask the same question here: I'm confused at what "brown calf" versus "dark brown calf" is. I think these came out just fine (and there may have been too much contrast with dark brown) but I asked for the same dark brown like on my Parkway. You can see the difference. "Brown" seems to be used fairly universally. What "brown" did I get? Is this used on any production shoe?

I like quite a few others on here am not a fan of AE cordovan cream. I use Saphir Cordovan Cordovan cream and the rare times it is needed Saphir Wax polish in Mahogany #9. These are the old finish AE shell and it has been working well for me.
