Would love some of your advice please on a shoe I'm getting made. I'm debating whether to get an imitation Lobb Chapel or Green Dover. If I go the Dover route, I'd forego the split toe and just have a stitched apron. Just a personal preference. Anyway, I'd get them in #8 Cordovan with dainite soles. I'd mostly wear them on weekends and with odd trousers and blazers, however, I'd occasionally wear them with suits in bad weather.
Any advice on which to get? I don't have a double monk or a derby that isn't a chukka. Also, unfortunately I can't afford both right now. Anyway, looking forward to your opinions. Thanks!
