Made-to-order: leather colors poll

Discover our choices and help us decide

 

Hello everyone,

Ten days ago, Lucas and I met our leather supplier to select several nice and timeless colors for the made-to-order line of VK-X products.

There will be 6 different colors available for the made-to-order service and we already made our choice for 5 of them (see presentation below). For the last color, we still hesitate between 2 colors: maybe you can help us decide which one we can pick?

 

 

1) The 5 chosen colors 

 

Continuing in the idea of proposing a high-end, elegant and timeless range, we first selected the traditional « Classic » brown and « Legacy » black you already know. Those colors will also be available for the future VK-X Classic and VK-X Legacy series.

In addition, we settled on a carmine red and a royal blue as an allusion our past « Crimson » and « Midnight » editions of the VK-1.

At last, we agreed on a very distinguished forest green to complete the rest of the selection.

 

 

2) The last color we need to choose: help us!

 

We hesitate between the last two colors, that we wanted a bit more light than the previous ones: a sand-beige, which will acquire a unique patina over time and will go well with dark tints of aluminum, and a beautiful mid-grey, soberer. Which one do you prefer?

My question is will the colour change after it’s been used for a while? I mean to the darker tone? Would the grey slowly goes in black and the sand -beige into brown? My experience is it will age and turn into darker tone.

My classic brown has become dark brown on the over ears, medium on the band, and close to as original within the ear cups (never touched). So I would expect a change – but not so much in colour, rather in its depth and darkness.

Thanks for helping out Lanny 🙂

Hi Ken, and thank you for commenting. As Lanny answered below, yes the color will change with time for both grey and beige, to a darker tone, but not something as dark as black and brown!

My earcups have aged asymmetrically. The left has become much darker than the right. Oddly enough.

I’d vote for the gray, but I suspect the lighter colors might pick up stains from sweat/water/fat more easily…

Hi! This is possible, and we plan to treat those colors consequently, to be more resistant!

I vote for the light grey but would expect it to age darker. Not a problem for me.
