I'm a fan of most NST's, have the Alden's on the Barrie, EG on the 82, Trickers Richmond, and Dinkelackers. I also do not like the Vass too much and would prefer the Dovers/JL above without the heel counter (Trickers and RLPL Carter for example). I really dislike the Italian version of this shoe, the stitch is too long and throws the balance off. But overall I think the NST is a great shoe that in different leathers/lasts can be worn in the most casual to the most formal (except tux obviously) outfits.
