Couldn't disagree more.
And Cognac should be available. Edward Green and Carmina use it....
If Cognac is not available in the bal boot, I vote Chestnut...but...but...something like a dark brown burnished calf would do the trick as well. See here:EG Shannon on 202 Last (Robert-esque).
Notice the speed hooks (damn it!). A shorter boot would be awesome with all blind eyes, not such a high boot.
