    Hazel perhaps? If you Google Image Edward Green Hazel I'm sure some things will pop up. That being said, I think Dark Oak reigns supreme.

    If I remember correctly G&G "Espresso" is an aniline coloured mat. Both Hazel and Dark Oak are vintaged. Don't worry, Adam will help ya! We even got a 9.5 last 83 for you to try out...

    Dark Oak is a great classic color for shoes.

    Is the Dark Oak color, consistent?
    I've noticed some pairs a lot lighter than others.
    My previous Malverns and Chelseas were a lot darker than the Sandringhams I have now..

    It is not. I have about 5-6 pairs in dark oak and they differ. I like that they have slightly different shades.

    From what I understand, if you do a MTO you can request a dark, medium or light shade of Dark Oak.

    Mainly...?
    This

    "Dear Sir

    Thank you for your email.

    It would not be possible to change the colour from Burnt pine to Dark oak. We could make them a little darker but it would not be as dark as the Dark oak calf.

    If you would like to go ahead with this, we can arrange for the boots to be collected and returned by DHL. The charge for collection/ repolish and return is £105.

    Kind regards

    I would not have thought twice of picking them up, instead of harassing you to sell me yours!
