I would prefer to do them in Antique Brown Grain, because I don't think Carmina does the dark brown Hatch Grain. And I would prefer to evaluate Hatch Grain a little more before we roll out more pairs, I heard AS had problems with their Hatch Grain although I think this was an unfinished version, Carmina finishes they Hatch Grain themselves. We've had no reports of any issues from any of our clients. In style or fit? In style it's kinda hard because Carmina does not actually have that very round, blunt last. Maybe Oscar but 202 is more blunt and bulby.
