    I should have done a before and after in the same light, but I mixed in black on these and it made a nice subtle change.

    Looks great! Is the underlying color more of a mid or cherry red?

    What's the material code?

    Those burgundy Austerity Brogues are a favorite.

    Great picks Medtech, I especially love the brogues.

    How does the Kudu suede feel, may I ask? Softer than calf suede? Is the leather also quite thin?

    The kudu suede appears to be thicker than that of calf, with a more dense and raised nap. I'll be totally honest that I picked it more for color than for any appreciation of any inherent qualities of kudu. Phillip made up a pair of tasseled loafers for me last year in the exact kudu suede and it's held up really well.

    Random plug for Saphir suede spray. I wore these very suede brogues for the first time today and it was quickly assaulted by coffee dripping from a Starbucks cup (ironically, this happened at the G&G boutique... go figure). Happy to report that the coffee wiped off completely without any trace of discoloration.
