For those on the fence or wondering the differences between the regular line and top drawer here is a pictorial comparison of the same shoe.
Inverness 8.5E with instep adjustment, nighshade on 202
Top drawer inverness 8.5 w adjustment, burnt pine on 202
Fairly significant difference in the overall look of the shoe IMO
Wow. Really interesting. Thanks.
Just to clarify though, there is a slight glitch with the second photo isn't there? For all the other photos the TD shoe is on the left and the non-TD one is on the right whereas for that second photo (rear view of the heels) it is the TD shoe on the right and the regular shoe on the left isn't it?
