Thank you, all right you convinced me out of tan wholecut. What do you think of cognac she'll color same as tan whole cut meaning not versital enough?

The 922 on Rain last has the same basic aesthetic design and appeal, yet the presence of broguing and the traditional short wing style make that oxford much more versatile.

 

The whole cut concept finds its best place in the black, burgundy and navy categories.  A cognac is a little better than saddle or tan but still falls short of the glory of the afore mentioned shades.

 

I own/owned the Carmina 922 in saddle and cognac cordovan and thought the world of the designs.

 

A whole cut in those hues loses a bit of its appeal IMHO.

I wore my Cognac Cordovan 922 with classic business suits, worsted trousers and gabardines as well.  SC and tweeds are good too.

 

That shoe is unique, in that there are literally no other makers who stock that shade of shell in a RTW balmoral style.  Classic.

 

The ONLY reason I sold mine was due to the fit not being exactly how I like it.

 

The day I put them in the box to ship them out to another forumite comrade, my wife looked as if she were to cry...when I asked what was the matter, she replied they were her favorite pair...

 

As far as the Navy Shell Wholecut is concerned...@RogerP is the chap to bounce ensemble ideas off of...he wears his in an extra smart manner if I do say so...

Got some fox (tobacco) suede wingtip derbies from SkoAB today.

Last shot is in direct sunlight. They don't look quite as orange as they do in the product photos on Skoab's website.

Thanks for the nod. Navybhas become an staple for me for business footwear. The only thing that has diminished my use of the navy shell wholecuts was the addition of a pair of Vass navy austerity brogues. But they both still get a lot of wear. See Vass thread from today for a fit pic.
