    Next to the already mentioned bordeaux, burgundy and red cognac, there is also the much more subtle 6125 cognac, sometimes also called 'dark cognac'.

    This picture (courtesy of watchidiot) show the different colors again:

    I will post a picture of my own sample book tomorrow!

    Lol Vass has like 15 shades of "Cognac". Need to get a little more creative in their descriptions. [​IMG] That 6125 Cognac looks interesting, but then the Oxblood looks straight up purple on my screen and I know that's not the case in real life.

    Seems like the bordeaux varies a lot from batch to batch ..

    This one is a lovely shade:

    while this one looks a lot more "girlish" and flashy .. Or it could be the light/ post processing playing games with my eyes ..

    That's correct, the colors in the picture are definitely off! I'll post a better picture tomorow, both under studio light and outdoors.

    I have a pair of 6125 Dark Cognac shoes that I have darkened further with dark brown shoe cream. It has come to be an interesting shade and something I am glad that I have in my rotation.

    The Kudu leather is an exclusive leather available through us, and it is sourced directly from Africa. It is different from the Pebody Kudu used by some of the Italian and English makers.

    We have developed a Kudu chukka boot from the sample hides, and the Kudu leather is extremely soft and lightwheight.

    I have a black calf cap-toe upper mixed with a red brown suede shaft Valway boot order that was supposed to have be done this week. I have seen black calf uppers mixed with grey suede on other boots, but have never seen black calf mixed with any other suede colors (hopefully there is not a good reason for this, i.e. it looks like shit). It should be interesting(?) to see the results, and I will post some pics once I get them in.
