    Is oxblood best / only matched with charcoal/ very dark pants?

    When I have matched with grays and browns, there's been too much contrast.

    I just think this is...perfect.

    perfect business shoe colour.
    perfect last
    perfect design.

    Looks like a perfect fit too.

    contrast is good with a suit IMO, but then i like black shoes with blue/navy suits.
    I think it's an English thing vs an Italian/American thing.
    IMO that colour would look good with dark to light navy, and charcoal to mid grey. Not to mention olives and forest greens etc.

    Yeah, I think you are right.
    I have never been a fan of Navy suit/ black shoes. A UK thing from what I can tell.

    I quickly scanned through a lot of this thread but didn't see something I am thinking of:

    Any pics or have you ever seen a 5 eyelet PTB or 5 eyelet captoe blucher on the F-last?
    All i have been able to find is the 3 eyelet or the 5 eyelet NSTs.

    Thanks fellers. Really hard to capture the elusive oxblood colour accurately, but its a really rich shade in real life.

    @apropos- Ready and waiting for your visit!

    it's sort of strange, when people cannot imagine how a certain style would look like, imo.

    Dark brown scotchgrain double sole Norweger on the P2. My new favorites.

    [spam] This pair in size 42 are actually for sale here. I ordered another pair a half size down. Now I finally understand all the Vass praise. Not only are they a sight to behold, they fit great.

    Those look great, Parker. Not sure how you can say that they fit great though, wouldn't you need to try the smaller size first?:D

    Oh I have the new ones already! :)
    Same exact shoe only the dark brown is slightly darker and half size smaller. P2 is awesome and fits my foot well. So happy since the F-last didn't work out.
