How about G & G Isham

I like the cleaner lines of the Hove, but it is quite similar...

I agree, in fact I have a pair of Hoves but I think they are different shoes. Hove is more on the dressier side while Isham is more of the coutnry shoe.

That may be true however I have not had an opportunity to examine Dover in the real life.

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.

Nuts I changed my mind about those. Also I think I found a way to make Inverness wearable with the help of little padding.

From the GG tumblr, is this more of what you had in mind:


I suspect it was a bespoke model though...

Thanks JS, now looking at the leather overlays the hatch has to be throughout the shoe. I guess I was thinking there was some way to do a contrast between smooth and hatch.

I guess my other thought of the Arran in vintage oak and hatch on the back would work. I'm still on the fence about the high ankle boot look.

This question is not meant to be rude or sarcastic, but why wouldn't you just get the Nevis if you want something like it?

Had 2 boots in mind:

High boot with NST but the shaft in hatch grain (might not really work out)

or

Chukka Arran with the quarter and ankle section in hatch grain

I could go the EG MTO route for Nevis but then again, that would be half a grand more than BE if a GMTO is started.

Just tossing ideas around and maybe something will draw interest. Nothing is too pressing to be an solo MTO at this point. I appreciate the suggestion.

I was posed the same question during my boot MTO conceptualizing as well. I would say that I am quite happy with GG, and they have been accommodating. So I choose to give my business to them over EG, who I have no experience with. Simple as that for me...

Lets do an MTO Oakham double monk on the TG73 in vintage rioja and rioja grain

Makes sense. There are some stories around these parts about how poor EG customer service is - my experience has been the opposite but i don't blame anyone for getting second thoughts.

Regarding dpprdr's decision, it's a very easy one for me if you care to hear my opinion - - the Arran is one of the best boots ever and far outclasses the Nevis design and possibly it's variants
