    Here, I just took a picture of my Dark Chili Strand and my Oxblood Strand.

    At least on my pair, Oxblood is very dark, nothing at all like the cherry red Oxblood someone posted a few posts up. I agree with you that Dark Chili is just a medium brown with just a slight hint of reddishness.

    Dark brown CXL Maritimes for a cookout. Love the color. I said a few pages ago that I think brushing non shell shoes is silly and pointless. But I have to say that giving these CXL AE shoes a quick brushing does make a difference (still don't see any benefit on regular calf). Especially when these tend to get a "bloom" on them (similar to what shell gets) after storing them for a while.

    There are certain shoes that I rarely (or never) see pictured here. Where are the Delrays? How about an Oak Street?
    Wear one of the less common shoes, and post your pictures!

    I posted my Ridgeways not to long ago. Do you want me to bust out my green Morgans? :)

    My oxblood shoes seem to be much darker than the others posted on here.
    I think my shoe was overburnished considering each time I use conditioner/cleaner they become ever so slightly more red.

    Not my cup of tea in terms of style, but the color is amazing.

    Here's one no one ever sees... the Wendell. I was sad with all of the bicycle toe bashing earlier this week, as this is technically a bicycle toe shoe. Im wearing them today and I LOVE them. They're on the 8 last and fit like a dream. I have the Del Rey in chili and black; I just hardly ever wear them. I've been trending more towards bals in the past few months.

    I was never a fan of the Delray.
    Until one week ago, when I actually saw someone wearing a pair (or something very similar). Wow. They looked SO MUCH BETTER in real life than I ever expected them to.

    I just got a new pair of Oxblood Graysons last week. They look just like yours. Many times the lighting or cameras give it a more red look.

    I just posted my Hamptons, and posted my Strawfuts not long ago! How out there does a man need to get?
