I'm looking to place a few MTOs next month and was wondering if members could give me any thoughts on the following?
1. Burnt pine seems almost identical to hazel, except that hazel is just a touch darker and more brown. But with the color variations I've seen come out of Edward Green, I assume these differences are negligible, is this correct? I have some shoes in burnt pine, but only a small swatch of hazel here, so I don't have much to go off of.
2. I'm interested in having several shoes made from a dark brown suede. Mink seems a touch more brown than mocha, while mocha seems almost black. Is this a fair characterization? I assume mink is an easy color to wear, and mocha is not?
3. The swatch of mole suede I have almost looks like reverse suede, but online photos don't always give it this appearance. Is it actually somewhat rough in real life?
4. Lastly, could anyone identify which leathers are these? One
. I assume the second is nutmeg suede, but the color looks a little different on my screen than it does in the swatch I have.
If I could get replies from members who have first hand experience with these materials, that would be really appreciated. FME, online photos of Edward Green are wildly inaccurate in terms of capturing color.
Thanks in advance.
