Bordeaux, oxblood, brown, and dark brown are quite easy to distinguish. Oil green and khaki are no longer in production. I think cognac in different shades are more confusing. There're cognac, antique cognac, 9316 cognac, 9215 dark cognac and red cognac. Cognac is the lightest, 9316 a little darker, don't know the difference between antique and 9215 may be they're one and the same. I only have cognac, antique cognac and red cognac.
We have a wide variety of colours of calf leather: bordeaux, oxblood, cognac, 6319 cognac, red cognac, antique cognac,Originally Posted by Vass catalogue, page3
The email I got from Eva about a month ago said Vass only produced cordovan in black, bordeaux and dark brown. I don't know which predated which, the email or the catalog. If Vass still produces that color in cordo, I'd imagine it looks pretty close to Alden cigar, a quite spectacular cordo color.
If it's still offered, I would find it hard to believe that no one on SFers has tried a pair in antelope leather.Originally Posted by Cantabrigian
Eva only mentioned calf, cordovan and scotchgrain, but not antelope in that same email.
Is scotchgrain (or pebble-grain) anything other than calf finished with a pebbled texture?Originally Posted by Roger
