    Did Hirsch ever make a reddish-brown Liberty?

    I've seen a couple photos of a reddish-brown strap that looks like a Hirsch Liberty, but as far as I can tell they don't currently make one. I own all three Liberty colors and none of them are reddish. Did they make one in the past? Or, does someone else make a reddish brown strap like the Liberty?

    ETA: Hirsch Liberty in light and dark brown:

    I have seen a number of Hirsch Liberty straps that look reddish from their pictures, but not sure it they look like that in real life because of the varying contrast between the posted images.

    Did you try Goggling this under "Images" to see if any pop up?

    I asked X2-Elijah recently if the color in this photo was accurate, and he said it was "a smite less red (more towards tan-red than the raw red in image). But it's not far off". Which leads me to believe his is decidedly reddish. Mine isn't.

    I have one of those, too. It's about the same color as my light brown Hirsch, but has less texture and color variance. The Hirsch looks very slightly distressed, which I like. But they're about the same color. I'm looking for something quite reddish.

    ETA: correction--it's darker than the light brown and lighter than the dark brown Hirsch.

    Re: Did Hirsch ever make a reddish-brown Liberty?

    I can confirm that Hirsch Liberty is only currently available in Black, Brown and Golden Brown, due to the nature of the leather there are variations form batch to batch and I would suspect in certain light it would look redder than at other times, but there has never been other Reddish Brown versions.
