The only negative part is... they’re just so flawless in fit finish and execution, I’ve already started on the next shell mto 🤦‍♂️
Oh no! What are you doing this time? I'm planning my next MTO and am thinking of perhaps the Mod 900 (except with a plain cap toe) in forest green CRU. That being said a green shell could be very nice...

Nice! I’m consider a Mod591 with shell and shrunken calf shaft. But I’m not sure of all the details yet. I usually need sometime to toss around some ideas before I end up settling on one.

My dear friends, I'm going for my second pair of SC's, this time in suede.
Would greatly appreciate anyone's help if they can identify this suede?

Also would love to get your impute regarding sizing when getting a SC's suede shoe.. do you usually size down half or a full number with suede in SC's? I usually do over C&J and Carmina, but would love to hear your thoughts.
Thank you!

I have never heard of sizing down for suede.

I have compared many swatch colours from SC's, and none matches.. but light sometimes makes a huge diference.
I have several other pics of this model, but they are all JAN maraca.
Comparing this pic to the KUD 076, the latter looks brighter.
I have taken this pic from this thread, years ago.. I reckon the owner of these must be a forum member, but I can't find it.

I have the same pair,

I have the exact pair, made for Drakes I believe. It is JAN, could be JAN076 or tobacco, much warmer and brighter IRL

Suede shoes usually stretch more than other leathers. Yours don't? I find I have always to go down size, otherwise, along time, they will become too loose. But of course this will depend on the last, I suppose.

I would agree that this one looks like KUD076. It also could pass for HUN076. It is definitely a medium-to-tobacco color.

I had also inquired about a suede leather with Philip Car at their last trunk show here in NY. He did mention the leather would stretch, but I was looking at an oxford (not my usual derby) so he said keep the same size. If memory serves, I believe he mentioned only the boots would require a half size down.

To be safe, I would just reach out to someone at SC before you make your decision concerning sizing and leather selection (model number).
