    I have a lot of etrusco already but might be interested in black or something in the burgundy family.

    What last are you thinking? That kind of design probably demands the 804 or 062 last.

    I’m casual these days so no need for a shoe like that right now. But it is an excellent looking model.

    Black would be my preferred, actually. Burgundy would also be just fine, ideally one in a deeper (like, REALLY deep) shade of it.
    Both are just fine, but I would vote 062 over 804. I find the 062 highly appealing.

    How’s this for dark:

    Aubergine calf

    That or black calf would be just perfect. Sans medallion would be my ideal, but, as said before, keeping a medallion would not at all be a deal breaker.

    You know, black Weinheimer calf may be the best option here. Sans medallion would my preference as well.

    Plus, fiddleback waist and the bombe treatment on each side. Or I could be down for a Vibram topy.

    Any idea how 062 fits in comparison to 804? It looks like the chisel equivalent.

    I don't. No experience with the 804. I'm actually (despite very slight reservations) likely to take my first EB plunge with the Gatoraide.

    That's just the perfect shade of burgundy.

    I’m a huge fan of aubergine. I have a pair of Vitello Yoko as well but the aubergine gets way more usage.

    Seems that most folks want a shade of brown but for those thinking burgundy, consider aubergine as an alternative.

    In my experience, I went up a half size from 804 to 062...062 and 946 fit similarly whereas 804 is half size down from them, ymmv (804 = 8, 062/946 = 8.5).

    I'm just contemplating the model. Currently leaning towards a PTB but plenty of time to decide before work brings me up north again.

    Hmm, not a huge fan of the way 946 fits so may have to forego something in 062
