    oh, well then I don't know. I assumed you meant advanced pattern changes.

    @Mr. Six

    Do you know the difference between Bracken Museum calf and Betis Castagna?

    cc @Leaves

    Also, Patrick...what polish would you recommend for Etrusco? I'm thinking Saphir Mahogany, not sure....

    Not beyond the known that museum calf gets its mottling largely at the tannery, whereas I assume that EB burnishes the Castagna itself. The colors do look close, however.

    What leather is the castagna crust or aniline dyed leather? Would like to know since I am participating in this gmto.

    Bonafè makes one of the slicker 3-eyelet derbies I've seen. Good one to have in rotation, I feel @vmss.

    Sorry - too many boots for me! I was thinking about a blue suede shoe in some type. It seems EB's blue suede is a delicious dark tone.

    All good there. Yep, agree with you about their blue suede, especially the Hidro Oceano

    @ Mr six
    Guys, please click on this link scroll middle section you will see live pictures of this make model and also the boot of this model.

    The live pictures has the sole edge lighter which in my opinion looks even nicer check it out and let me know what you guys think.

    Would anyone be interested in a Loden suede String loafer?

    Open to either a chiseled or a more casual rounded last.
