Many thanks, @laufer.
The mole suede swatch I have doesn't look anything like that at all. I wonder if EG accidentally mislabeled mine.
In any case, would you say these are also accurate representations of mole suede? They all seem quite different from the color on Brooks Brothers' site, but I wonder if that's because of the nap. As you noted, suede can be very difficult to photograph. At least in these photos (taken from LeatherSoul), the color looks a bit more grey.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)@sevenfoldtieguy. Those characterizations were very helpful.
Any additional thoughts from others would be appreciated.
Yes those are accurate presentation of the mole suede color. In fact that Brooks Brother loafer looks exactly like those shoes pictured on LeatherSoul web site. I ordered that loafer from Brooks Brothers and I had to return it due to the fit issues so I have seen what it looks like in the real life. I think LeatherSoul does better job of photographing shoes than Brooks Brothers does.
I do not know what is the cause of discrepancy in the swatch you have? It might have been mislabeled or it might have been just a variation in colors from batch to batch.
