Ok, just found this in the Carmina thread, from Leaves

 

My question concerns any gradations around the first color (Vegano Marron) that might be lighter but not to Natur Cuero. The Natur Burdeos looks very similar to the Marron. The former must be a bit redder, so curious about that too.

Carmin


To complicate things further, you can also finish the "vegano" in a few differnet ways, but let's stick to basic. biggrin.gif And please rememberthat although it's called "vegano" it is not proper veg.tanned.
 

I am interested in the "finishing".

Awesome.

 

Man I sure missed the boat with these, sure glad I went in on the St James II Kudu and Cedar calf though.

I'm more inclined toward a dark brown (or at least mid-brown) because I think the contrast with the Norgevese stitching is part of the overall effect that I like. The stitching would probably be a little more lost visually with natural edge. This is an Alden with different stitching, but looking at it, I'm imagining  that the stitching would blend in too much on a natural sole.

Darker is better on your make up

I was considering this too but I am a narrow and would not be a part of the first set of people needed to get the order plus I'd like to get in my kudu thrilled to make sure that the size and width I chose work for me on this last before ordering another pair in the same sizing.

I love how they came out in depth of color and texture so I can't wait until I get mine.

I'm sorry.
You are right. I'd realised that a darker sole would perhaps be better to give more of contrast between the soles and the uppers, and also between the sole and the contrast stitch.

By the way.
Just thought I'd seek you guys' opinion.
I've been wanting for the longest time to get a pair of jodhpurs done with EB.
I've always thought hatch grain would go great with such a pair of boots but EB doesn't work with it apparently. As a result I'd considered cola llama. But after looking at some pictures of llama in the wild, I'd found that it might crease and wrinkle a fair bit more than I'd desire.
I do like the idea of museum calf but it seems like it would be a weird idea to do this on a jodhpur.
What do you guys think? What would be a good choice for uppers?
That being said, anyone interested in joining?

I would think Bonafe Inca might be good idea or Bonafe Buffalo leather.
post #15762 of 23746
I'd love to make something with that red grain! Anyone have photos of a makeup with said Inca leather?
post #15763 of 23746
Gotha makes sense. Dark or.mid brown then.
