    This shell looks more and more like the cognac shell. Not what I expected but I really like it

    What I like best about these is the way the shell is darker around the stitching. Adds an extra dimension.

    An extra dimension without the distraction of contrast stitching

    Vass's whiskey and saddle are two slightly different colors. Search this thread-- there are a few comparisons.

    Agreed. However I wouldn't be surprised to see overlap. I'm almost certain my whiskey is as dark, if not darker than the cognac I tried on at the vass shop

    Madre mio. What a collection. Your photos have raised the question of whether I don't need a pair of what I take to be Budapest last loafers in ostrich.

    Thanks for posting these photos.

    oh yeah, im glad you noticed the ostrich. it looked good in person and I think a casual shoes like a loafer would be perfect for it
