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!

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