Yup...I have a 6:1 ratio of Dover to Ecton so hard for me to argue that.

Ecton also has a single leather sole and no "extra leather" layers around the heel.

 

See this for reference: http://www.skyvalet1.com/Edward-Green-Ecton_p_226.html

Interesting - I thought this pair that I picked up last year were Dover boots but they seem to be some kind of Dover/Ecton hybrid based on the above posts: three eyelets, double-soled, and the extra leather along the rear quarters:

Nah, those look more like Dovers. Look at the heel area and compare to the Ecton in my link above. Also, that looks like a double leather sole, right?

Yes, double-soled with the Dover leather heel piece, but three as opposed to 5 eyelets. An RLPL special order, I guess.

Maybe, but then again three eyelets are standard on most chukka style boots. My vote is for Dover.

 

Also check out the Halifax: http://leffot.com/shop/index.php/shoes/edward-green/halifax-chestnut-delapre.html
