I'm just trying to see why. The Cornhill is also hand stitched and I don't thing the Onslow is, so that could be a factor as well.

Again, I appreciate the info. Thanks.


Yes, at that price I would definitely have a look at the Edward Green Dovers as well. They also can be had in Grain or regular Calf. The will cost a bit more, but heck your in the right territory already. The apron is hand stitched with a pig bristle by the way.

 

Here's a pair in Mahogany CC on a Dainite Sole.

The EG's definitely add a new wrinkle to the mix. The burgundy ones look pretty slick. I'm a big fan of Alden shell and suede but lately I have been looking to add a little calf to the mix. Both of these are intriguing possibilities.

Appreciate all the responses guys. Thanks.

The other options to consider would be G&G Ishams or Hoves.

Getting a lot of wear out of these with the recent rain.  At least my feet are ready for El Nino.
