Is there such a thing as "chestnut", or is this just a broad brush classification? There are quite a number of shoes described as being 'chestnut' in colour, but colours vary quite markedly. A few examples attached. Factor in the fact that shoes are individually hand burnished and will differ slightly in colour anyway and you have very much a sliding scale. I mention this only because many people order online are are reliant on the quality of the image on the website, or indeed in the printed catalogue. Image is often misleading. Perhaps, to avoid a headache go for business black! I have to say, chestnut is probably my favourite colour, though burgundy comes close. By 'chestnut' I mean a darker shade of chestnut (e.g. EG "Chelsea" on the 888 last). Like many things to do with shoes, you have to get up close to them and try them on to be sure. What with new technology an' all, there'll be an answer to this conundrum eventually.
