Just free associating...
This might be too much of a design change but how about a G&G version of the EG Nevis? Vintage oak for the uppers and hatchgrain (since it seems to be a favorite) shaft?
I found a picture here off SF similar to what I had in mind but with the stitching that of the Hove:
Another boot thought is a vintage oak Arran with the quarter and ankle area in hatchgrain.
