Now THAT's a shoe I'd love to see in the wild - do it! What options are you thinking of taking - the only one I've seen is the pearl grey/black spectator, which to me is about as iconic as a St.James in vintage cherry.
Made to order Paris has - or at least had - the Burnham TG73 in vintage rioja as part of their collection. Perhaps worth asking them if they have it in stock in your size or could re-order without the MTO surcharge?
the whiskey shell TG73 Burnhams from another member are my fave Chelseas.
