I picked up the black/black version for cheap last year but they're probably a pass, silhouette is not nearly defined enough and they run small.

 

I'm on the lookout for a chunky derby as well. Every pair of docs I see has that huge stitching showing, is that all docs?

Seems to be most if not all docs.
If you find anything let me know, please.
I've come accross a couple of possibilities but nothing that's a definite yet.
Grenson "robin", but sole seems too thick
Chaeney and Trickers both did a wedge crepe sole, plain toe but I can't find anything current, same for Viberg (but too pricy)
The tiger of Sweden above.

I've also been looking for a crepe or lug soled derby. Was eyeing these Dries for a while,

 

 

Cheap solovair, like docs but without contrast stitching

These Carvens look okay

 

 

leather looks a bit cheap

Mainly looking for something with a rounded, wide vamp, and some taper to the heel. American shapes are generally too sleek. European workwear shapes are better, don't care about too chunky, just not too sleek.

Carven look ok. Id prefer some kind of rubber sole though. Marni have done one recently that was good.
I've got a bunch of bookmarks on my laptop, I'll post them up later if anybody is interested.

Those solovairs I actually like alot!  Does anyone out there have pair?

 

Too bad most fashion brands forget people have feet bigger than size 12  :(

Most UW stuff I've seen is fine but not amazing.
