    That would indeed be helpful if they're both sourced from Ilcea (although, I believe Vass sources from Hass (?) now). Looking forward to it. Thanks.

    the gold museum calf in pictures looks reddish, but I have heard it described as a medium brown and the name makes me think of a more cognac-y brown. Is it reddish in person, or just the picture saturation (looking for a dark red shoe, either going with museum gold or red cognac)

    I'm hoping it's closer to antique cognac (brownish) than reddish. Really interested in an interpretation of antique cognac with some character and depth. Same goes for oxblood (museum plum) and dark brown (museum brown).

    My Ilcea museum gold has subtle reddish tones, but red cognac is a hell of a lot more red. Very different looks, IMO.

    I have a pair in antique cognac and one in new gold museum (the original one from Ilcea though), if I find the time I can take some pics tomorrow when I'm at the office, they are both stored there for the moment. Think that Haas version is pretty similar, at least that's what Rezso told me. And by that the New gold definitely is more reddish, more chestnut color than antique browns warm medium brown. I think the color that John Lobb calls Parisian brown museum would be closest to antique cognac, but don't think that Vass has any supply of that specific color to date unfortunately.

    Much appreciated, thank you. Looking forward to it. If the museum gold is to reddish (C&J chestnut-ish) I might go for an other pair in antique cognac as I prefer it to more redish interpretations.

    Here are some comparison pictures between dark brown and dark brown museum calf and also oxblood against plum museum calf. I have adjusted the pics to show contrast and also in saturated mode. Picture was taken outdoors under natural light

    Oxblood and plum

    That oxblood is void of all burgundy, is that accurate?
