I know you didn't ask, but IMO the faux wingtip Inverness is a much better looking shoe. Cleaner and sleeker, it looks amazing in all the lasts you are considering. It rocks in the 606 and 888 lasts as well while the Malvern does not. The Malvern is nice enough, but looks like something my dad would have worn and he wasn't, well, very stylish. He wore Church's, and the Malvern is the EG shoe that looks like Church's to me. I'm just sayin' ...

Also, keep in mind that Dark Oak seldom photographs well. It is quite unique and nearly always photographs lighter in shade than what it is in reality. That being said, I own both and would still give the versatility nod to Burgundy. Buy the color YOU like best because IMHO you cannot make a mistake here. Both are subtle and beautiful!
You cannot go wrong with either Dark Oak or Burgundy. They are both incredibly versatile, with a slight nod to Burgundy as it amazingly works with just about anything.

This thread is useless. It is certainly not a regional issue! And for those of the "never wear untucked" persuasion ... you should be ashamed for commenting about anything in a forum dedicated to contemporary men's style. You need to get the stick out of your a.., people!

The clothing forum culture in general tends to focus on dressing in compliance with perceived norms.

Here, we like the SF uniform and heckling the guys on the...

I don't think an edge dressing is the answer on those boots. I would try a tan wax first in order to retain the beautiful color and sole edge layering details on that boot. Either Kiwi or Saphir should work fine. Edge dressing is much like paint or stain and will probably obscure the wonderful contrast between the sole edge and boot leather that you want to preserve. Go with wax. It also will seal the sole edge for you.
