    It is not brown for sure. The colour changes under different angles. You can see some pictures below for reference.

    Thank you Banis! I feel MUCH better about the color now. This is definitely my next G & G color. Now I just must decide on make/model.

    Thanks, I'm very pleased with the Drummonds. You can special order any available color for a 50 pound upcharge. But if the beech color is discontinued overall you'll not have that option.

    FYI, the SA at the Jermyn St. store kept putting smaller and smaller sizes on my foot, with the goal of eliminating as much excess toe space as possible. I ended up 1.5 sizes down from US on both my new pairs of C & J. They run quite roomy.

    this is true for me specially with the 348 last. Do you have to size down 1.5 on the Finsbury (341) as well? I've been thinking of the Finsbury lately. Thanks

    Yes I did size down 1.5 on the Finsbury as well. It is a bit more snug than the Drummond at the same size though.

    Thanks! My first and so far only pair of shells.

    I suspect I'll be hooked for life.
