I too would like to know as those are on my list, once things return to a point that I’m wearing oxfords and a suit.
I ended up ordering the Fairfield oxfords. The color is a nice, rich, dark brown. I think chocolate is accurate description of the color. Second photo I tried to get more natural light on it.

Some weeks ago I saw a post comparing the old and new Ottawa in Antique Cognac, so I decided to add some patina to my new Ottawas.

I used brown Kiwi polish which I use for staining my shoes when they show nicks or blems. Is important to use very little product.

Let's see how the color sits the next weeks, I am sure that some color with vanish in the vamp or in the heels but with a little patience and some brushing the color will get even.

Those look like they turned out pretty good. I’m interested in how they’ll age.

Nice work! I have both and need to touch up the darker pair. You've shown me the way!

Out for an early-AM walk before taking the dog to the vet. Have really liked the Chelsea boots a lot!

Those look great! If you use some black, it will add additional depth. (I know that sounds crazy, but it works)

Waiting for those chukkas...will we see them in May? Any more pics of what’s to come? I am a little too obsessed with checking the website everyday. Got my credit card ready.

It will be closer to the end of may, early June. Here is a photo of the crimson version.

@GrantStone is the saddle tan blucher on leather gone for good?
We have taken a break from ordering it to bring in some new styles. I think it could find its way back in the collection.

Honey Edwards today.

Any recommendations on where I can find a nice dark brown(chocolate) dress belt?
We currently don't have one but recommend the shoe mart's collection. Have many of them and they are made well. The dark brown has some variance but the one I have is close enough to wear with the chocolate calf.
