    Ideally darker grey (charcoal) with pink/purplish shirt/tie/socks for contrast. But honestly Corthay might not be the best value for the money but I have yet to see anyone do color/patina better

    Your best bet is sak 5th flag ship store. He use to come to leffot. But it look like leffot dropped them.

    I didn’t know Leffot stopped carrying them. That’s disappointing that they don’t do bespoke trunk shows anymore there.

    Photo I got today for my next pair of Corthay’s in production. They still need to be painted and patina’d.

    Final product just received today. Special request color that the Corthay shop doesn’t normally do.

    No fancy color name like they have for their other shades of green: midori, bronze verte, or olive green (not too fancy). I asked Sony to do a different shade of green that they don’t normally have.
