As a person who purchased the Beaulieu from SkoAB, I would agree the Beaulieu would be my preference. There are many styles of dark brown wingtips, with EG, or other makers. The Malvern is more traditional though so if you're still building up your shoe rotation, then maybe for now, the Malverns are more practical.

For me, if they were my size, I would have picked up the Beaulieu and phased out an older burgundy Oxford in my collection.

If you're serious...Congrats! I would like that shoe at some point. As soon as I stop buying every Dover in sight.

The orders in so thanks! A have a pair of Dovers and feel I need a pair if Galways before I commit to more Dovers. But I know skomager Dagestad here in Norway has Dovers i Doak on the 202 coming next spring :|

With the Inverness just received I probably would have gone with the Malvern hadn't it been in my size.

I may be in for that bal boot with the burgundy suede shaft @RogerP so long as it's on single Dainite for sleekness.

And that 2102B last is gorgeous. Is the instep that much higher than the 946 (which is perfect for me) ? @Leaves

I'd probably order that Bonafè cap toe in an Adelaide style and different leather. It's a great silhouette.

@buckeye00

Congrats! I regret not snagging one in 7.5. I wanted to replace my alden grain NST and couldn't decide.

My wallet thanks you for your prompt action.  :D

 

Another 15 minutes and $700 would have disappeared...poof!

I saw those this morning and used every ounce of restraint not to order.

^^Both gone now. Hope to get Shannon, Newbury and Laughton soon to replace them on the EG shelf.

Leaves-
I thought you were going to treat us to a host of pictures of the brandy willow calf Dovers today. Looking forward to seeing them when they become available. Thank you.

(So NO suede).

 

 

 

There are two models: the new

 

 

 

 and the old

 

 

 

Last: Robert

 

Sole: rubber (single dainite seems to be the consensus)

 

Model: to be decided

Option 1: classical but without the cap-toe and with medallion.

Option 2: New style with the upper part of the shaft coming lower as in

 

Leather: upper part in Burgundy (calf) and lower in Blue (calf) or the other way around?

 

Lining: Purple??

 

 

Need to be confirmed by SkoAB what the possibilities are. 

@Leaves

 

 

Persons interested

 

 

@lovingcup

@MRMstl

@RogerP

@Dieg0

 

 

People hesitating (could you please be so kind to confirm your interest or not?

 

@MGD83

@sacafotos
