    Is it a suede belt in the middle? I bought a pair of suede shoes from Vass i Feb and asked Rezsö if they had suede belts. He told me that they only had box calf belts to sell.

    I'd say, from left: oxblood, black, antique cognac, dark brown, 6319 cognac (or maybe cognac), 6125 dark cognac. The double monk is harder, not sure if it's oxblood again or Bordeaux.

    Does anyone know if vass charges more if I want to do a 2 leather derby? Like scotch grain/calf combined. Thanks! Because I got quoted 520 euros without shoe trees and toe taps. Was wondering if it was the price increase or the design.

    Can someone post a comparison shot of calf cognac vs 6319 cognac vs antique cognac please?

    I can't tell the difference between 6319 cognac and cognac. 6319 is rarely heard of.

    Cognac is a bit more "yellow"
    6319 Cognac is a bit more "orange"
    Antique Cognac is a bit more "red"

    By a bit, I mean the undertone of the polish, the colors are by no means yellow, orange, or red

    Google the colors, I'm sure you will find 100s of pictures

    100s of pictures under different lighting, so all are useless.

    Anyone can do a side-by-side comparison shot? And where does dark cognac fit into all this?

    I can't do a side-by-side comparison with different shoes, but the vendor described this pair as sporting three shades of cognac, so perhaps it might help:

    6125 dark cognac is just too different, too red , I don't like it, I prefer burgundy or better yet, burgundy shell
