    What is the next shade and two darker than brown with Vass? Where does dark cognac and oxblood fall?

    Hey sinnedk, do you mind sharing the specs or your order? And do you by chance have updated photos after a few wears? Thanks!

    @sinnedk Is the shell cordovan by request only? I believe there is small quantity of it available for MTO, do you know? Also, which last is that? Is this the "London" model? Perhaps PTB refers to a default makeup through Vass, which I am unsure. Yes I recall seeing Moo's pair before, does he still have those? Curious about the wear of the shell now.

    And is it true shell is not good for the rain?

    Edit:
    The shoe box! Answered my own question...New Peter last and is the London model. Now the question about the bordeaux cordovan option.

    @gettoasty

    Is the shell cordovan by request only? I believe there is small quantity of it available for MTO, do you know? - i think its request only, not completely sure but i don't see much vass to

    Also, which last is that? - 'Vass derbies on P2 (New Peter) last, Cordovan color shell cordovan, 360 Goyser welt'

    Is this the "London" model? Perhaps PTB refers to a default makeup through Vass, which I am unsure. - PTB is just plain toe blucher, not sure what london means there

    Yes I recall seeing Moo's pair before, does he still have those? Curious about the wear of the shell now. - yea he still rocks them, i haven't seen his in a bit but they looked good thats why i bought those.

    And is it true shell is not good for the rain? yes true shell but not horween, about rain i'll let u know whenever that happens.

    lets go to PM if you have more questions

    :cheers:
