Pardon the lighting and photography but here is a shot of my new MTO burgundy oxfords.
I went with a little stitching around the lacing but I think I prefer the cleaner look of an adulterated wholecut. These shoes don't scream for attention but hey sometimes we need to tone it down.. The color is very nice. The staining has some interesting texture and overall I think the shade of burgundy is very versatile.
These shoes are made off a 4E last. I have small feet. Note to St. Crispin's: You need to supply us small footed friends with some shorter laces please.
