I used to be on the fence about the Halifax - no more after seeing these gorgeous pics. Is that the 606 last and snuff suede?

Those are on FIRE! Is clove suede the same as polo suede?
Don't have the boots but have a pair of clove Dovers. It's a brown with a strong red tone. Not quite a burgundy and not really a straight red. Great depth and variation of colour.

Under certain lighting conditions I find it to be brown with strong red undertones. Under other conditions, I don't see much brown in it. It appears more of a burgundy with strong red undertones. I think this EG pic provides good representation of the color in real life.


My burgundy delapre/clove suede Galways. You don't see this combination very often, one of the reasons I love this pair.

Polo suede is more mid-brown with red undertones. Polo suede Coniston for reference.

Thanks man, very helpful. I think my polo carminas are just a bit darker than your c&j but not as dark as the outdoor pic of your eg where you pickup more of the burgundy hue. Is clove supplied by cf stead?

I believe EG gets their suede from an Italian Tannery.
