I'll take Nightshade over Midnight. Is the nightshade like G&G's cherry?

I love that nightshade and would glad take a pair in that color. I keep looking with the hopes you will have a pair in my size-- 8F on the 888.

But neither of these colors draws much attention and I find them both to be tasteful with a suit and tie. I have a pair of Falkirk spectators in Midnight and Dark Oak, and I feel comfortable wearing them to work. I would feel the same about Nightshade. However, if I had to choose which of the two would be more office-compatible generally, I'd say Midnight. Outside the office, both colors are fantastic - dark enough for night life and special events, but also work well with odd trousers and jeans during the day. Very versatile colors, with a bit of extra interest. Both winners, with a slight nod to Midnight. I hope my comment is helpful.

Thank you all for your opinions!  Here is my two cents.  Nightshade changes a lot between indoor light and outdoor light.  Indoors it looks rich and sexy.  Outdoors I really like it with lighter gray pants.  Midnight can be subtle depending on what your wearing but then it catches your eye and it just pops.  Maybe we need both colors in our future orders.  :satisfied:

Some very nice models you reproduced in your post. Many of the posted models, and some of the colors, are not for me, but nice nonetheless.

I found them to be sort of pink-brown. Certainly not Burgundy as I'd seen before on this model at Edward Green trunk shows. Didn't buy them.

I prefer a burgundy that is dark, even with eggplant overtones. I found the Inverness (a model which I very much like) in burgundy antique entirely too pinkish, and, because of its very light color, too casual for my intended uses. The pair that arrived at my door looked nothing like the pics on BB's website.

yeah, SF shoe aficionados isn't really a fair representation of people buying EGs, most people get the basic "boring" styles without much experimenting.

 I don't recall what their dark grey is called, but I know I love it.

Slate?

^^^ That might be it - I'm not up on their descriptive names for the various colours they offer. I know I've seen both a lighter and a darker grey - and it's the darker one that really floats my boat.

does anyone here have a link that shows the range of EG leathers? i'm intrigued by these mentions of indigo and cardinal...

i agree with this pretty much word-for-word, except that i'd probably lean nightshade (nightshade dovers..?), but that's mostly just because my last two orders have been in navy

cloud grey
post #5310 of 14861

Okay - the colour DpprDr posted is the one I want - so slate must be it.  I think cloud must be the lighter grey colour that I still like very much, just not quite as much as I like the darker slate.

 

Thanks for the help gents.
