    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.

    That sounds good. I also have been trying to find a more reddish suede. Thank you rc121!

    Try guessing which is which. The comparison may be a little unfair since the left pair is new, while the right pair is half a year old.

    AC is a brown. 6125 is a dark red.
    But there's quite a bit of variation within any one Vass color IME.To be sure of a clearer difference u could consider straight dark brown, a nice versatile color

    l to r. .. AC, Dk Brown, 6125 Dark Cog, Red Cog

    I own all these colours and this is by far the best colour reference image I have seen posted in this thread.

    IMO, Antic Cognac. On a side note, I really like the Dark Cognac. If I can ever figure out my sizing in Vass (U last), I think I'm going to get a pair made.

    Just go up 0.5 size up from F, if your F last fits well.

    Are those pairs on one of the Peter lasts or is this what the F last looks like for greater sizes?
    (I am only an EU39.5 in Vass F ;))
