i agree. iirc, your vass have a goyser welt, too.
the sandhurst above also sports a double sole. the leather on yours look more delicate. i'm not a fan of the apron stitching pattern of the eg's. more subtle? imo, this depends on the pov.
the dover has been very popular on sf. also the ecton and there have been last comparisons and what not. eg more or less "disappeared" from sf, thinking a few years back.
honestly, the best norweger are "not" available from rtw. vass is pretty close to a authentic last shape.
but like in fashion also the last shapes follow certain trends. subtle, but they do. mr. berta has settled on four basic last shapes for now. depending on your measurments, little adjustements are realized. etc., etc.
