anyone have a side-by-side pic of rosewood cc and mahogany cc? which is lighter? how would you describe the difference?
i'm asking b/c I'm considering the SkoakAB GMTO and want to see which to buy, assuming they're both available at some point.
Rosewood cc is more red and lighter in color. Mahogany cc is more brown and darker in color. Both are great colors and you will want both eventually, it is just a matter of figuring which models. Here is a swatch from top to bottom
Wow, finally found it. It certainly was a ways back there.
Frankly I just copied the build Namor first mentioned. However if you were to want Dainite I'm pretty certain we could work something out.
You should find pictures of the racing green (forest) lining to represent the lining that will actually go forward (if I am not wrong). Racing green is more tolerable to some than than minty stuff shown above. Good luck.
Bright linings are weird on blucher construction shoes IMO because the lining tends to peak out.
Thanks, and Leaves actually changed the Mahogany MTO to racing green (forest). We will probably mirror that as well.
I assumed you would, which is why I chimed in. Cheers.
Waiting to see if we can get enough for Rosewood. If not will put in for Mahogany by the 10th.
It appears as we may need just one more for the Rosewood Nevis and we should have enough. It was @anderz second choice, but it does not appear that the Almond version right now is going anywhere.
Thank you sir.
EG Nevis MTO Rosewood CC only needs one more.
Model : Nevis
Last : 606 E Width
Leather : Country Calf
Soles : Dainite with storm welt.
Eyelets : Hidden eyelets.
Lining: Forest Green
@cwh812 (Willing to be the sixth if need be)
@anderz (Second choice should Almond not work out
@anderz first choice

We're getting close but remember we need 6 people to complete an MTO. So put in your vote now
I just know there's one more rosewood lover out there. Don't be shy!
I own, or have owned, or have handled all five CC colors displayed above.
The two in question are both nice. Rosewood is lighter. Rosewood is more red than mahogany but mahogany still has some subtle redness to it. If you are on the fence, I would recommend mahogany as I see it as the safer, more conservative, choice.
If you want no red hues, go with walnut, which is a very dark brown.
Having said all of that, my next CC model will probably be rosewood.
