Those are C&J for BB. Similar to the Weymouth, but not quite the same. I have a BNIB pair that aren't really a good fit for me, yet I haven't been able to bring myself to sell them because they're so awesome.

Can anyone identify these tan chukkas?

I´d have chosen a lighter color sock, though.

I agree - while a huge fan of tan shoes, this simply gets a little too close in colour to the suit.

I was inspired by the other tan norvegese shoes posted. So here's my 2 cents. By the way, I LOVE tan shoes. The lighter color really gives you the opportunity to use different shades of shoe cream to add subtle highlights/ antiquing.

Santoni Ltd Edition norvegese captoe

Some of these shoes appear to be less tan than a brown/light brown (with the understanding that tan may be considered a shade of brown, I suppose). Can someone provide a pic of a model "tan" shoe, just so that I can have a baseline of knowledge for tan during future purchases? Is there a difference or is tan synonymous with light brown in most circles?

Not trying to be a wise-@ss, but ARE YOU KIDDING? Are you looking for a color chart which shows the exact point where a color ceases to be "tan", and becomes "light brown"?

It's probably a subjective issue, though. Like, "one man's trash is another man's treasure" could be, "one man's tan is another man's light brown".

True!

And none of the premium makers actually call their tanned materials tanned. Maple, Parisian Brown Misty, Bauxite, Hazel, Burnished Calf, Beechnut, Pine, Ash, Whiskey...the list goes on... all are tanned or close to what many people would consider tanned (or others light brown).

Imagine how hard it would be to get the manufacturers to use something as practical but "stiff" as NCS. Would take some of the charm out of the ordering process I guess. Imagine "I'd like to order the Kent on TG73 last, Oak Bark Sole in S 6030-Y70R Calf and S 9000-N Suede". No fun. No fun at all!
