Come back and shoe us the creasing on the unlined after a few good wears.

Will do. I tried to try them on without creasing them and it was impossible. The slightest bend of my toes creased them immediately. Good thing they fit!

Thanks you guys! I have been working hard at getting them... :-)

 

I am actually kind of amazed that I have managed to get them, since I got my first (Whiskey LWB) only in June of this year...

What is the difference between the dover and plain toe blucher?

The dover is Unlined. The one that they are specifically referring to is Unlined in Color 8 with Medium Antique edging. Special order by Leffot.

I would read through the last few pages of this thread. There was very detailed discussion about this just a few days ago and some comparison pics were provided as well.

Don't forget that the dover has it's eyelets in a separate part of the upper who's edge continues down to the welt.

i really like how "sleek" the dover looks.... does anyone know if there is a Black shell version (or other exotic shell versions?!?).  i already have something similar to the Color 8 shell version....

Hmm... I'll have to give them a call.  I somehow must have missed those when I was in the DC store last month on a quick weekend getaway.  I was so focused on some Cigar shells that I saw which were unfortunately out in my size....

Lucky you for getting the horween stamp, thams!  Mine unfortunately didn't come with any.  I was surprised how much better unlined shell cordovan holds it shape compared to unlined suede.  Also, I noticed that the Leffot unlined version looks to be exactly the same width and length as my Alden DC Ravello lined LWBs.  Here is a pic of them side by side.

FWIW I didn't find these any more snug than my lined LWB and Naval boots. Just much much more comfortable out of the box. I would love a pair in Ravello, but I can't see that happening at any point in the near future.

What cigar did you spot there?

Hmmm... I forget, I think a pair of LWB and boots.  But honestly I was only casually browsing.  My wife had picked up a nice little watch earlier in the day, so I was gun-shy about dropping more $$$ on some shoes/boots.

^ Betting it's the PT boot on commando, which they should probably put away as it seems all they have is that one faded out display pair.
