What colour cream should I get if I want to maintain the same colour? Would you say light brown?

And what colour would you get if you wanted to darken the shoe?

Any pics would be great - thanks

Hi, would anyone be able to advise? Thanks

I'd go for mid brown to maintain the colour and dark brown to darken it.
I sometimes use dark brown on my edwardian pair which definitely darkens them be it very slowly.

Is the Dover still available on the 88 last? I read (I think somewhere here) that it is no longer available?

Thanks

I personally enquired about the 88 last in the Jermyn Street store some weeks ago, as it is an excellent fit for my low instep foot. The gentleman with whom I spoke had not heard of it and said it must be an old last. I suspect this means that the answer to your question is, unfortunately, no.

 

However, I do know that Foster & Son still use the 88 for some of their RTW range, e.g. the "Cavendish", which are made by Green. Therefore, it may be possible to source a MTO Dover 88 through Foster. I believe the price would be around £1,000.

When it comes to brown I love Saphir's Havana....havent been able to place it yet. It looks darker/richer than medium brown. Applied them on some mid brown derbies and got a very satisfying  dark chocolate brown. Ca anyone characterise it better?

I'd probably be in for that. Love the look of the dark oak/mink suede upper! Doubtful about burgundy, dunno what colour nightshade is.

Keen,

The nightshade is the darker shade of burgundy.

On the other note

I am planning on organizing Galway group MTO on following specs

Last 202 or 64
Color : Mahogany country calf
Sole : Ridgeway with the storm welt.

Any interest?

Thanks. 

 

Hmm, maybe if the other one falls thru. But I'm pretty set on the dark oak/mink calf model. I might do a personal MTO if no one else does it.

I'd be in on this.  888 or 82 last would be my preference.

How does the 64 fit in comparison to the 202 and does it come in a G width?

Sounds interesting, depends on the final price. Both lasts are good for me.

I'm in the market or the shearling lining Galways, but could jump on your train as well.

 

PS Last group order via Leaves had very attractive price.

Does anyone have experience with both Hazel and Burnt Pine? I'm thinking about getting a few Dovers MTO, and two of the colors I'm interested in are these. I have a Burnt Pine Oundle, and a swatch of Hazel here. The colors seem awfully close, possibly too close to justify two MTOs. Is anyone able to comment from first hand experiences?

Note, online photos of both colors, I find, are too unreliable, so first hand testimonies would be much appreciated.

Mahogany country calf on both upper and lower? I like the Galway with two different types of leather (e.g., suede and calf or country calf and calf).

I think both fit the same. A few pages back SF member posted that he takes same size in 64 and other lasts.
