Does Edward Green have an antiqued, dark grey color and, if so, what is it called?

If it exists, have any of you seen it? any thoughts?

Many thanks

EG does not have any grey leather, antiqued or otherwise, in their standard leather offerings. Nor does G&G. If either of them did, I would have a pair. That said, they can do anything if you're willing to pay for it.

Corthay, in their latest book, does, and my next MTO pair (to be ordered at Leffot's upcoming Corthay trunks show, will be in that leather.

Lobb also has Museum Pewter, which rocks.

The Museum Pewter was actually what got me thinking about this. The Lobb lasts that I like don't work quite as well for my feet as EG.

I have seen Pewter, and agree that it's a nice color, but what makes it work, I think, is that it is gray-brown. Straight gray would look awful, IMO.
