got my sample pack today, very happy i took the time to get some samples, much better insight into the colours and want i really need. dark havana really almost looks black (to my eyes at least) and burgundy and australian nut are also increidly close for me (again maybe its just me). i think i will end up with the nut and hazel, might change hazel to oxford tan
now on to decisions on buckles
You cant beat seeing something in the flesh! As you say the Dark Havanna is dark, we describe it as the colour of Bendicks Bittermints, very dark brown but its a interesting colour that reacts to the lighting conditions. Australian Nut and Burgundy are cousins, the Burgundy is really a rich brown and definitely not an Oxblood, nontheless a really nice colour. Its a really good match with some Horween leather. The colours all have a lot of subtlety and character and a lot of them have origins going back hundreds of years, Sedgwicks are doing a good job preserving them, though I do wish we could source an Oxblood!
