    Brax - those double monks are superb! Can't wait for mine!

    ALso, for anyone interested I decided to offer my Bordeaux calf Austerity Brogues on B&S in my signature below.

    For your convinience.

    Note that I have since darken the stitching with dark brown cream. Much better. To be honest.

    Saskia Wittmer makes a wonderful version of this using tan suede and lighter coloured soles to give it more of a desert boot look.


    No offense, but ew... can't stand the bleached white stitching...
    Are the threads waxed? I find thickly waxed threads so much more difficult to take in colors.

    While theses were displayed, en masse, in another thread, I thought that this thread might appreciate a closer look at my Vass:

    Beautiful. I don't suppose you have anything in antique cognac and could provide a side by side comparison? Anyone else?

    TC - here are some Chukkas of mine in Antigue Cognac. I'd say the AC is more chocolatey while the 6319 is a bit more a traditional Cognac. Both are excellent.
