I think the Plymouth would make a great spectator shoe, provided the throat and the brogueing around the the throat are of the same color. I would prefer that everything enclosed in red below be the same color as the wingcap and heel counter, with the vamp and the quarters being of a different color/material. As it stands the the throat brogueing is punched into the same piece of leather which makes up the vamp and quarters. Hopefully the MTO program at EG can accomodate this change while preserving the beauty of the U-shaped throat.
I did have the same rough 'vision' as you do regarding what to do in leather and what to do in canvas. But these envisioned shoes are still waaaay down on the to-acquire list
. And I still have all these decisions to make about them. I'll have at least as much fun agonising about the choices I should make as I may have wearing them should they ever be realised.
