My question: As I am not looking for a dress shoe as of the moment, would any of these be considered suitable for casual wear, even (god forbid ) w/ jeans? Specifically, I am wondering about the chestnut Dovers (how do they look in 202 last?), and the Holborn in cognac suede (anyone ever seen this color? It's not in the catalogue, though the shoe is shown in mink suede). I saw a better picture of the Holborn on one of those Japanese shoe-porn sites in black on a 606 last, http://www11.plala.or.jp/kiki-mo....orn.htm I am not really much of a loafer guy, so the Harrow is basically out, though I'm sure its quite nice for what it is. Actually I am more of a boot & buckle kind of guy (witness my current C&J order for chelsea, chiltern & savile) but unfortunately no boots here, and the Falmouth, while probably very nice, I would prefer with one or more of the following options: storm welt; one of the antique browns--edwardian I think--; double leather sole. What can I say, I'm basically a casual guy at heart (though elegantly so, I like to think). Still, I'm sure the black Falmouth is quite beautiful, and I really am a sucker for a nice monkstrap... Â Edit: I should add that I don't mind mixing up a dressier looking shoe with a more casual outfit, as long as it does not look like a mistake (this is somewhat subjective, I understand). I also consider it a plus for a shoe to be able to crossover from casual to dressy and vice versa, hence my attraction to monks & boots.
