    I am trying to get a similar toe cap on a pair for my next order, Rezso referenced a model called the 'weymouth'. Not sure how much help it will be, but I hope it helps you.

    Thanks!, Your cognac are beautiful, wear them well



    They are normally called U cap, I think the waymouth thing is a reference to an EG model, a derby if I'm not mistaken, very cool shoe.

    Austerity is more classic. Whether that matters to you is another question.

    The Austerity. The River II is too casual, and should be on the U last anyway.

    They are both fantastic, perhaps with a slight edge for the River II.

    Low instep wearer, high instep oxford shoe, wholecut construction = a lot of creasing.
    Only one more reason not to get a shoe that comes with closed lacing right out of the box.

    Btw, I would neither get River II nor Austerity.
    Both are good looking shoes in pictures, but too off the norm for my liking and thus would not buy for myself.
    Rather I would get one of these three classics:

    Would prefer OE over OEII on the second shoe though.
