oh man...sorry mrjester That MTO was already ordered and we dont have extra pairs coming...
You snooze, you lose. What can I say.
Is it possibly the stormwelt you're talking about?
Some double monk appreciation. Both on Inca last.
PSA: Skoak has just restocked a few sizes of the PTB in dark cognac shell . . .
^ They just restocked a lot of their shoes
Great looking pair of dark cognac shell. I would have purchased it if I wasn't in the process of MTO-ing a similar looking pair.
The only difference in my pair is using cognac (not dark cognac) and double sole leather, rather than dark cognac and danite sole...so just a tad different.
Does anybody have a side by side comparison to cognac and dark cognac. I'm sure it's the lightning but dark cognac looks pretty light - ligher than cognac from my attached link. How does dark cognac compare to Alden's cognac if somebody has a comparison on that as well?
They do look great. I need to warm up to PTBs because I'm missing out on some great makeups.
Not side-by-side, but both pretty accurate IME.
So what's this color?
I was told that this is cognac, but this color seems even darker than "dark cognac" from your picture and much, much darker than your "light cognac". Is my picture not a good depiction of cognac?
I know lighting can be an issue when the picture is taken, so I want to compare it apples to apples.
Among their other virtues, they're comfortable as hell. I'm very curious about Carmina's interpretation - I suspect it's sleeker than an Alden or AE while still maintaining that nice wide toebox - but I didn't have the patience for the restock so I did an MTO brown shell through AE instead.
Thats dark cognac when its not in natural light. Your pic is in low-light conditions with a flash. Also, may be a particularly dark example of dark cognac. As you must already know, shades vary shoe to shoe. You never know what you might get in terms of a darker example vs a lighter example. Shoes from the same batch can even have significant variance among them.
less one of these
Quote:+1. There is more variability as to shade with shell in general than with calf.
