Maybe a shade darker IRL, and I agree- great pair of shoes!
I can always try to special order those for you. Send me an email!
They may not have made them this season. Yuketen only produces what their dealers order. It is a little misleading to look at their collection because many of the shoes available in the collection may not have been produced.
The Maine Guide is really a winter shoe and most dealers order them in the fall so that will likely be the best time to buy.
They have a dealer list on their website: http://www.yuketen.com/index.php/stockists.
Check out LN-CC, TBS, End, Norse Projects, Coggles and Up There (Context and BB as well) as they seem to have the best buyers and will generally find the most sought after Yuketen styles/colors at one of these stores.
Quoddy does not make shoes for Yuketen. Quoddy makes Quoddy. Yuketen sources several shoe makers around the US and Canada (NOT QUODDY) depending on the style, materials, and type of sole construction. The Shorley's did at one point help Yuki but that was many years ago.
Quoddy's Grizzly and the Yuketen MG are totally different shoes and are in no way the same (other then they are both leather shoes).
Oh, Rancourt makes Rancourt, Oak Street makes Oak Street, Arrow makes Arrow, Russell makes Russell, Yuketen makes Yuketen. I am sure you get the point by now.
None of the companies make each others shoes. Rancourt and Eastland MiM do make shoes for several private stores but they are sold under the stores respective name. Rancount also makes several moc constructed type shoes for a couple major clothing manufactures.
Not sure why you still conclude that Quoddy's Grizzly is the same as Yuketen's MG but again, they are completely different shoes. It's like saying a Nike and Adidas are the same because they both have the same shape but we all know they are not the same. Perhaps they have some similarities but they are not the same.
Hope this helps and clarifies the confusion.
