Can anyone comment on their recent experience with Carmina's "cognac" cordovan color? It seems that the color is very inconsistent depending on the shoe make up and/or vendor. Some cognac shoes appear very light while others are moderate to dark brown, and some have tints of red.
I'm very interested in having a shell cordovan Oscar last PTB made in a brown/dark brown color, but am hesitant given the apparent inconsistencies in color.
Mine (shameless plug as they are in my sig for sale) are almost identical to my Alden Ravello. They're just called "Cognac" on the box. I was initially told they'd be close to Alden Cigar but when they arrived they were definitely lighter. I suspect the Dark Cognac is equivalent to Cigar with Cognac being closer to Ravello.
