    Any opinion (or details pics) of their dark brown suede versus the snuff and other colours or versus suede quality from other mid- and high-end makers?

    On pictures the dark brown looks really unimpressive compared to the snuff, I wonder if it's just the colour or (sometimes) also the quality: I am really not prepared to spend € 300+ on suede that will just turn out to be meh. I'm looking for suede distinctively better than Meermin Classic Line. I've seen Carmina's snuff in person and it was beautiful but I need a darker coloured shoe.

    Okay - I think we might just be using different terms to describe the same thing. You don't describe the Simpson last as narrow fitting, per se, but agree that from a company that makes something in the order of two dozen lasts, none fit narrower than Simpson.

    Thats two. I believe we need atleast 6 to qualify for a GMTO. I still need to check for the attributes that can be changed.
    Anybody else interested in a pair of burgundy cordovan oxfords (Simpson) ?
