Awesome. Let us know how it works out for you. I bet, actually, that the navy will be quite subtle and interesting. Your comment almost makes me feel inadequate for not being more adventurous myself--of course, I could have ordered both.

You're a madman, VR. If I were you I'd arrange an alternative shipping plan as a backup; when these first went on sale a few months back, I corresponded with KG about them via email and they were quite firm that they wanted nothing to do with shipping them out of the country, even within the EU. Please let us know how it turns out, though. If it works, it would be quite the coup.

In the semi-annual EG sale thread, bengal stripe described the colors (all three, IIRC) as "extremely dark,
" and lined in "cardinal red." I realize now that tho I earlier described that as dark red, cardinal red sounds brighter than I imagined. Not that I mind. Speedster and Holdfast both get many
for helping make this happen. EDIT:

I don't have them yet (obviously), but looking at the pictures, navy is definitely more conservative, and probably would not get noticed as anything out of the ordinary. Green would definitely be for the adventurous sort.
