    Too loud for a dress shoe, or you just actually hate caramel brown?

    +1. Reminds me of a plaster. Definitely not a keeper.

    Really, bad enough that I should return them? Hmm.

    The color is equally bad on these?

    Well if you like em - keep em. Personally I would really struggle thinking of something to pair them up with. Also the colour makes the leather look pretty cheap and nasty.

    Please see the picture of a different shoe above, is the color equally bad on these (same color)?

    Edit: Actually, while they are both labelled 'caramel brown' they do seem to be of different colors.

    The SM looks slightly darker. Still not a colour I'm a fan of.

    :) Tough crowd. Guess SM would have a little more difficulty marketing them if they were labeled baby poo instead of caramel brown

    Tell me more - you are referring to changing the color via shoe cream?

    imo, both time slots are indiscutable for MTO. that's even long for bespoke. anyway
