Looks like Alden's color 8. They are more red/less purple in real life. And, comparatively, they're a steal at $600...

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing

If they are reddish cordovan from AE, they are simply called burgundy. Yours looks a bit faded (burgundy and color 8 cordovan fade to brown) but definitely burgundy.
i'll take come better pics once they are polished up nicely. i promise you they are not burgundy/color 8. they are too light for cappuccino and a bit too dark for walnut cordovan (which is noticeably different than walnut calf.)

i am thinking they are just brown shell cordovan like the strands, but i'm trying to get confirmation that they were made like that at some point, maybe as a webgem or whatever a couple years back.

My gf during law school sent me a care package ... she included pho ingredients because she knew I loved a good pho
But never ended up using it because I was too lazy lol

I'd wager a guess that it has to do with the 'severity' of the suit/color.

A marriage is a happy celebration. A funeral is not. Formal evenings are not filled with koreans doing LMFAO and black is pervasive.

Get Brown Burnished Calf.

My AE Randolphs are Chili and are more casual looking than I'd like as a result of the color. That limits the versatility and coupled with a tight fit on my foot, means I am putting them up for sale soon. Too bad since I like the idea of the shoe but it just didn't work out for my particular needs.
