Thanks gents. I'm thinking of getting a Dover, 606 last. Suggestions for a leather? I was thinking a mid brown plain calf. I have the GG split toe blucher in dark oak peccary and wi
l also get one in mid brown hatch grain.
I have the Dover in dark oak but I really like the look of almond country calf
My ladbrokes will be edwardian, I wanted acorn initially but I was advised to avoid it as it is lighter than you think, which is pretty light. I guess it really depends on how many pairs you have in the stable already. Crat how many dovers do you own?
I have an Edwardian Oundle and it's more of a light tan color mixed with a hint of gold. Some seem to be on the yellow side. I agree it's a tough leather to know just what you're getting. You can try and put in a request and show photos, but it's never guaranteed.
