    Gold museum in a double monk would look smashing. JL has a model called the Camberly

    I'd say the oil green could also be called loden. It is a very particular type of calf leather though, which I think may be why it has the term "oil" applied to it.

    On the website it kind of looks like a green version of museum calf

    So...Chukka in medium brown suede...F-last or U? I realized Vass can do a 1.5 leather sole to single and add metal toe taps - so I'll probably go with that.

    I'm looking for a very versatile boot that can be worn primarily with denim. I already have a pair of theresianer high boots in cognac scotch-grain.

    Do you recall which are the scotchgrain samples? It looks like, from left to right, they're:

    1. Bordeaux
    2. Cognac
    3. Brown
    4. ?
    5. Black

    Is that right? What's number 4? Did you ever take outdoor photos of them? Thanks!

    Or P2, depending on your size. F in smaller sizes on a boot have a risk of looking a bit "petite".
