Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy - Page 1504

Is the color in that picture pretty accurate?  It looks kind of reddish to me?  How does that compare to rosewood?

The color is a bit redder in this picture. Rosewood is red, and Mahogany is browner. There is a distinct difference.

I only own 1 suede derby and it gets little to no use in my rotation because I'm not a fan of it. Maybe it's just a taste thing (and that's fine - beauty is, after all, in the eye of the beholder) but I'm just trying to understand the broad appeal.

I was like you when I first started. Loved GG, Chelsea Boots, Wholecuts, things that are simple, sleek, clean and modern. All I can say is buy more shoes and then eventually you will understand the appeal of the Dover.

I'm trying to free your mind, jonathanS. But I can only show you the door. You're the one that has to walk through it.

I don't think it clicked for me from looking at shoe threads. It was the full fits in ths " what I'm wearing" threads that convinced me.

Youre not alone jonathon

I owned a pair of Dovers and sold them

I can admire the stitching work, but the proportions of the apron and toe look off to me. I find them a bit ug-ly

Lucky we dont all like the same things!

Reminder that EGs are 30% off at Brooks Brothers today with corporate discount. Sale prices are reasonable given that the shoes come with EG trees.

hahaha, Im more of a wholecut & captoe w/ a chiseled toe of course.  Although, I will admit, I have seen some split toe dovers that look okay with trousers and a winter weight sportscoat. But still, not a shoe I'd invest 1k in.  Maybe if it was on sale for 500 or less - that said, they don't appear to be in my future haha.

If I did shoes, a dover would be one of the first on my list.
