CALLING ON HOME SEWERS TO HELP HEALTHCARE WORKERS FIGHTING COVID-19
The lack of proper masks, gowns, and eyewear equipment is making it difficult for health workers to do their work fighting the novel coronavirus. In a recent New York Times article, medical workers said they were worried about how they can both fight the coronavirus without imperiling themselves, as well as their loved ones when they go back home.
If you are a home sewer, please consider helping my joining Hickey Freman Technical Vice President Jeffery Diduch in his effort to produce and deliver homemade gowns and masks to medical professionals in the greater Rochester, New York Area. Read about how you can help here

You can do it yourself. It's quite simple in fact. You just have to buy the tan version and to dye it with Saphir teinture française burgundy color. You can even choose between a light color (1 coat) or a dark one (3 to 5 coats).I was looking for Coniston in Burgundy Scotch Grain but couldn't find any. Anyone else interested to get this makeup?
Thank you. That is a great suggestion. Not sure if I am at this DIY skill level, but I could for sure find someone to take care of it. Thanks again.You can do it yourself. It's quite simple in fact.

Personnaly, I dye some of my shoes in dark brown and I programmed to dye my tan Coniston in mahogany in a few weeks. It will be a little more difficult because I will have to use 2 colors to make it.
Few exemples :

That's why I often buy my shoes in tan... I can choose the exact color I want ;-)
I agree with you on that point. Plain toe would be more logical for a veldtschoen zug boots. Less aesthetical but much more logical in term of waterproofness...Thanks for that. It worked.
I keep hoping there will be a snowdon GMTO without the faux cap. I cannot understand why people want to spend over the odds for zug and then put hundreds of unnecessary holes in it. I have a pair of C&J veldts with a faux cap. They leak badly at the sides of the toe cap seam when I walk in long wet grass. I think I will go for a single MTO so I can get a plain toe and a ridgeway sole fitted (ridgeway is far superior in snow and does not clog like the commando)
Can it be any other grain color? I mean C&j has some fine grain leathers? HOw about tan pebble grain?I'm interested.
I would say it is possible since Whiskey cordovan is possible.Can it be any other grain color? I mean C&j has some fine grain leathers? HOw about tan pebble grain?
