    just an fyi, I contacted rezso about a suede color to closer match oxblood (rather than red or cognac) and he mentioned they have a bordeaux suede right now as well

    Good to know. Brodeaux more of a burgundy? Anyone have a photo of oxblood calf in sunlight?

    That actually helps. Does the color work well with your wardrobe?

    Hi DpprDr
    Sorry I know the questions wasn't towards me but I wear 5.5 UK myself. I have a sem-wide feet and high instep
    I take 5.5UK on Carmina Rain/Inca (sometimes 5.5UK or 6UK on their narrower Simpson/Alcudia)
    When I first contacted Rezso for sizing info, he recommended me i should go with 39 (39.5 for U last since he said they are narrower)
    I've heard Vass makes it a little bit and recommend big so I took a chance and went with 38.5 G width.
    They came and fit perfect for me. Hope that helps.

    That is eerie. I believe I have the same exact pair coming to me ( though in p2 last). Is that antic cognac cordovan? I was supposed to get a brogued cap toe, but they made a straight instead.

    Very much so. Pairs nicely with grey's (probably not charcoal, haven't tried) and blue's. I like them a lot.

    Yes, oxblood looks basically
    Black when not in the sun.

    Does anyone know if 6125 cognac and red cognac are the same? I was looking for a reddish brown close to [​IMG]

    No, red cognac is quite red.

    6125 is much closer to the picture, but a little redder I would say.

    The picture looks to fall right in between 6125 and antique cognac

    UK5.5 = EU38.5 to EU39.

    Anyone else have both the antique and the 6125 cognac?

    I ordered antique cognac , but I'm thinking about getting a boot, and I don't want to get a color that is basically the same a same I already have.
