Re split toes - Would love me a pair of EG Dovers one day. Saw them in person at Leather Soul and they are a great looking shoe. Would wear with odd trousers though not suits. Carmina have a nice one too that I think the Armoury carries.

Skoaktiebolaget in Stockholm also carry a couple of Carmina split-toe models, which look nice (although the shell cordovan might be better if it were a little darker, in my subjective opinion):

- Suede on a crepe sole, on the Soller last:

- Saddle shell cordovan on a "York" combination sole, on the Queens last.

I've never been a huge fan of STBs but if I were to ever have enough shoes in other styles then I'd go for the G&G Hove...

Also, the EG Ecton on the 888 last is a nice shoe... I prefer the longer vamp compared to the Dover, combined with the more squared toe.

Would probably grab the Dover in a textured leather if given the chance rather than something smooth. Thoughts on Ivy guys? (Ref to my previous post)
Edit: This was on the EG thread recently, probably my ideal though I might prefer a slightly lighter version as it's inherently casual but hell it's sublime!

Beautiful! Is that the EG Dover? I want split-toe derby in a darker leather someday.

Tis Gerry. A lovely piece of shoe!

 

Little question for you Mr Nelson.... What camera do you use? We have had this discussion some time back....

 

Looking at a Fuji x10 - obviously there's a lot north of that on the the grand scale of quality. It appears to be quite some bang for the buck.

 

Cheers

Bunny, I've got a pair of grainy leather, split-toe loafers in a mid-brown by Ferragamo and I'll see if I can get a nice, close-up shot of them soon. Whilst a chocolatey colour is nice, I do agree that a lighter, mid-brown colour looks great.

DB, I've got an X10 (which is on loan to The False Prophet at the moment so he can see if he likes the camera). I like it a lot. One of the reasons I bought it is because it has an optical viewfinder, although I do prefer the optical viewfinder in the X10's "big brother", the X100, as the X100's optical viewfinder has an overlay that gives you info on focussing etc, whereas the X10's viewfinder is a pure viewfinder so if you decide to go manual, rather than using auto-focus, you have to use the camera a fair bit to get a good feel for it.

On that note, Fujifilm is about to release - or has just released - an upgrade to the X10 model, the X20. I think that the X20 actually does have an optical viewfinder with an overlay like the X100 and thus fixes that "issue" with the X10.

I've posted a few photos taken with the X10 to my Tumblr blog (see link in my sig below) so if you'd like to see some of what the X10 can do (although I'm hardly a great photographer), please have a look!

If you've got any questions about the X10, please feel free to ask away.

Hi DB, I use a Sony RX10 - no optical viewfinder but the sensor is larger that compact cameras of that size and it's very portable (which is the big draw for me - I can fit it in my jacket pocket with no issue). I've been very happy with the photos that I've taken with it.
