The direction of the thread has taken quite a beneficial turn. Beneficial for those that enjoy SpTDs 😊.

Speaking of SpTDs that would potentially be on the dressier side, Wegan hasn't produced one yet has he? I'm thinking a Hove with an extremely tight waist.

not bespoke, but on GG the only Hove I can wear would be on MH71 (barely), but I do like how it looks for sure.

^^^ The one split toe derby to rule them all, IMO...







Hiro Yanagimachi L33 on his international last, modified for my feet. I never liked Dover that much, a bunch of chunk and rather boring, as all EG shoes apart from some of their Top Drawer versions. I find for example G&G Hove on DG70 or similar much better IMO.
The design here is really nice, though the colour is a little too medium brown for my tastes.

He hasn't made a split toe derby yet no.

Considering your proximity to this man and your love for dressy SpTDs, I am nominating you.
Your mission Jesper should you choose to accept it. Infiltrate Wegan's domain. Become friendly with him. As always, exercise extreme caution because there will be other styles that may sway or persuade you. Don't let it happen. We need to see a completed Wegan SpTD at all costs. The good folks of SF support you. Godspeed. 👍🏻

The split seam (?) on the left shoe doesn’t line up with the length of the right shoe.

I guess that’s within tolerance of fully handmade shoes?
