^I like simple too. Thanks, M. I'm thinking of getting mine through Alfred Sargent's new MTO program. Have you considered that? Or maybe through Ron Rider. I bet he'd be able to get the leather in the exact shade you want.

They are an excellent shoe. And if I didn't have a great pair of half brogue Aldens in what Doc calls a "fiery" chestnut, I'd probably go w/ these. But I'm trying to keep the collection small -- just one full brogue, one half brogue, one longwing, etc. I don't have a shoe like the Dover, and in that style I don't think I'd want anything but the Dover, which is probably beyond me right now.

Wow. These are spectacular. Thanks. I have a similar pair of ancient, thrifted Florsheims being resoled in the city now. I'm still thinking punched caps, plain caps, or plain derbies are the way to go.

I can't imagine only having one pair of dark brown shoes though, so one should also have a derby.


Wow, I have to have a pair of these. What shoe is this exactly?

Yep, and I was going to vote for it in this thread. Gorgeous shoe -- not pointy, not pimpy, not ostentatious, yet still has presence. Pretty close to perfect. Glad to see it's gotten so much love already.

Look away from the croc bespoke G&Gs that I posted...I don't want you to turn into a pillar of salt.

Doc pointed this shoe out to me and is now my go to brown shoe for special occasions.

Regards.
