Zoinks, that changes everything!

They are nice, though. Maybe someday Ironist will sell me a pair satisfied.gif

As I've said a number of times, Dover's are my all time favorite shoe. I doubt I'll ever get a pair. Spending that much money on a shoe is just not in my programming.

 

That being said, jcmeyer, I like the pebble grain more than the polo suede. Something about the stitching on the suede, I dislike.

+1 Clags. I do not not find the stitching on the suede aesthetically pleasing. I really prefer the pebble grain... which looks gorgeous.

+100

 

I believe on armoury/ethandesu tumblr from back in the days there was a nice example of a suede dover style, possibly StC's

I like these Carmina's though:

Those are very nice. To be honest though, I prefer the Dover. There are other shoes I think koji does better smile.gif

I recently bought a pair. The fit wasn't right so they went back. Had the fit been right, I may have kept them, but they were poorly done. The leather would have been considered second quality by some "lesser" makers. It is a beautiful design, and had it been finished as well and used as nice of materials as I have seen on other EG shoes, it would have been up there on my list of favorites. But, frankly, it was a $300 shoe masquerading as something more.

^ Interesting and unexpected.

 

I've looked at a pair of EG Dovers "in the flesh" at Double Monk in Melbourne. They were gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. Finishing was superb. Didn't appear to be anything wrong with the leather quality at all, no sirree.

 

But yeah - way pricey.

 

I now have six pair of Carmina, five C&J, three Santoni, three Loake 1888, two G&G. But... no Vass and no EG. Maybe one day.

That is interesting Patrick. Mine have been excellent. But then again, I received mine in.... maybe 2010?

I love my Dovers, but I have to agree with Patrick....I'm not all that impressed with the materials and finishing.

You guys should all just agree that dark brown suede is the way to go.

Polo suede rocks my world.
