Made by Harris. Actually, I think that is a great color to wear as a sport shoe. Nice pair of forest colored tailored cords, tattersall shirt with a cashmere polo over...sometimes, you have to see everything in it's context. Also, Eastern Europe, Asia and Africa are much more open to colors than the more Anglo countries - the Italians manufacture for all. On the flip side, cordovan/burgundy colored shoes are predominantly an American taste. I was asked once 'why do Americans want blood colored shoes?' The question was more in the context of culture, and those things extend to fashion, as well. I looked into it, and before WW2, burgandy was rarely, if ever, offered by manufacturers here. During the war the most popular/sought after type of footwear for the soldiers, including those from other branches, were the Airborne's jumping boots - made of shell cordovan. After the war, this material became very popular on the street - and the calfskins followed, as a less expensive option. So, you never know what can work in one country and not the next.
