    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?

    his exact description was it was darker and closer to oxblood than either red or cognac suede.

    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
