That's one of my favorite songs. Impressed that you know that one! Hah.

Yes, as Roger said, here you go: http://www.skoaktiebolaget.se/collections/carlos-santos/products/carlos-santos-patina-service

The patinas like Coimbra (very dark brown) and Guimaraes (dark Chestnut) will be very subtle and versatile choices.

Guimaraes (dark Chestnut) Chelsea boot would look really good

I think a lot of the CS patinas look quite stunning. Nothing gaudy and over the top, just tremendous depth of color.

Wait wait, I can understand not pretty. But why must she be ugly?

Happiness in this case is defined as a function of ugliness. So, the uglier the happier. Have you seen Good Luck Chuck? Think Eleanor Skepple.

The bashful Arides
Has married an ugly wife,
He was bored with his manner of life,
Indifferent and discouraged he thought he might as
Well do this as anything else.

Saying within his heart,’I am no use to myself,
'Let her, if she wants me, take me.'
He went to his doom.
