    as someone else mentioned earlier, EG does the Dover better than anyone else,
    a relative term. give me the vash or carmina anytime over the Dover. imo the heel counter is not corresponding to the apron. discuss...

    Asquith. That type of brogue is my favorite shoe style. Can't decide between dark brown or black though.

    Those Dovers ae nice!

    At the risk of dating myself and sounding like a trekkie nerd, this question reminds me of the simulation that Capt. Kirk reprograms because he doesnt accept the premise of a no-win situation.

    Anyway, I would humbly submit the EG Falkirk on the 82 last - as someone else mentioned earlier, EG does the Dover better than anyone else, but I've never really seen the Falkirk's broguing done by anyone else, really . . .


    Nice shoe, but would you mind blowing up the picture a bit more please. Thx

    Love the Dover, but own this: Chelsea dark oak. Very versatile.

    A brown Dover. Haven't made up my mind on any particular colour or last. Maybe pebble grain.

    Ecton in dark oak on the 82 or 606 (can you get it on the 82?). Or Dover. Tough call for me.

    I love SF. The only other people who dont look at me like I am nuts when I refer to my shoes as my "collection". To 99% of the world, they are just shoes. I <3 u guise *sniff*

    Wow. $1,100 retail. Ouch.

    Can anyone recommend something similar in colour and last?
