My buddy has a pair of Guimaraes double monk straps, and they definitely aren't light. They're a perfect mix of red and brown. It's difficult to describe unless you see for yourself, but I think you'd find it more versatile than Braga or Algarve. I think you'd be better off skipping the Dalton in Chilli because Carlos Santos shoes have much more character because of the patinas.Hey, thanks for your comment! I am excited! I am considering ordering them in Algarve as well and just returning the color I don't prefer. I am fairly certain that Guimaraes is what I want, though, having now realized that they are meant to be a brown with red tones. That's what AE's Dark Chili is, and upon realizing this, I pulled up photo of chili shoes and guimaraes shoes. They really fo look fairly similar, with guimaraes probably being a bit darker. I have seen some photos of Algarve where it looks like Braga, but others where it looks like dark chili on the money. Tough call without seeing them!
I will absolutely post photos of them when they arrive!
