I tend to agree and think Hove is easier to coordinate. Dover is more casual and country, but I also agree that Dover is Dover and it has its own place. I own 32 Last Dover and MH71 Hove. They are very different shoes.
Mr. Kuti sent me a photo of my latest make-up. On a catalog this model is based on Peter last, but after consulting with Mr. Kuti, I went with F last which I have some pairs of Oxford type already. I am happy with the result and hope the fitting works well.
I guess it is about 9-10 judging from other RTW GW dress shoes. First thing I noticed is this SPI when I got Vass shoes.Don't get me wrong. I like Vass shoes but if it was in line with other RTW makers I would have loved it more. I wonder how much does this less SPI contribute to cost reduction?
