    Advice regarding the vintage 2004 chesnut and 2006 Deep grey
    ,the Luffield and Becketts models...
    For dark chocolate suits ,which finish will suit the most?
    Would you quite Walnut finish or something a bit darker (Parisian Brown)?
    I have already Pepper vintage 2004 and Berluti Allessandro cacao patina shoes and i'm looking for something a bit darker...
    The same question regarding navy suits and the deep blue patina?

    I personally prefer Luffield bit I would get more use out of Becketts as I wear a suit everyday.

    As for color, if you''re looking for a brown hide, either Parisian or Dark Brown Museum calves will be great. Luffield also comes in Parisian brown suede which is gorgeous![​IMG]

    I love the Becketts and would go with that. (As much as I love 2- and 3-eyelet derbies.
