Cognac is more brown- a bit orange like the original color of my westborne. You could always go with middle brown if you're looking for a true brown.

The cordovan that C&J uses on their stock models...i.e, SKYE 2 - is referred to as Dark Brown.

 

But they have other options available as MTO.

Crockett & Jones - Artwork Competition

 

http://www.crockettandjones.com/news/index/artwork-competition#.U2y0nPldV8E 

 

We see so many great shots from SF members of our shoes that would certainly have a shot of winning the competition. At very least, we would love to post some of these photos on our Facebook and Twitter feeds. I remember one photo from, I think, CTBrummie of his Islays after a hard days paint-balling. Our production director particularly enjoyed that one! Send it in and we'll judge away!

 

Send your entries to facebook@crockettandjones.co.uk

 

Kind regards, and good luck to those who enter.

 

James

And here is medium brown:


As I stated in a previous post, the owner of the store where I bought the Monkton's indicated that I could mix mahogany and dark brown to create chestnut but I'm thinking of mixing Cognac and Mahogany instead. Does anyone do this and if so, what's the best way to do it?

Believe me, MH, there are summer days in El Paso where one has to resort to boat shoes or the like, sockless.  Or sandals!

I'm in hot, icky Florida U.S. and as a rabid boot afficianado - 70% of my shoes are boots! - I wear them year round.

I both endlessly fight with as well as make a lot of concessions to the heat but my boots are non-negotiable. Even if it's 100 degrees out, my Lindricks, Ludlows, etc. are all still in rotation.

Had to go to Northampton this afternoon (to drop a pair of shoes off in Edward Green) so popped into the Crockett & Jones Factory store as it is closeby.

 

Found a pair of Tetbury boots in my size, so added it to my previous factory store purchases.

 

Tetbury

 

Previous purchases were

Draycott2

 

Grasmere

Do they let you try the shoes on in the factory shops or should you know the lasts beforehand?
