    Versatility question for my OE II remake - 6125 Cognac or Dark Brown?

    5 out of 6 suits I have in rotation are navy..

    I did really like the 6125 - just the decision demons creeping in as usual!!

    I'd go for 6125. Very versatile, works great with navy, gray, green, brown and more, and a bit more unique color than the dark brown. Also it seems to be the one your heart is set on, and you should always listen to that.

    Quote:Vass offers so many different shades of cognac - remind me with a pic, if you can, which one '6125' is again?

    Hey folks,

    has anybody ever done a longwing derby boot? Like, e.g. in a dark scotchgrain with goyser welt.
    Also, which last would be best for this. Go P2?

    Thanks Torsion. I completely endorse J's recommendation - that is a beautiful and versatile colour.

    Jonas - that sound very intriguing.
