    They certainly can, if your looking around online better try Italian sites. Otherwise, you can always make one

    I've seen a few juniper samples, this picture is close but doesn't quite capture the touch of sage that's in it, love it more than my old olive antiques, which can read green with a lot more blue in it. Great color probably one I'll run next fall

    The don’t see any reason why you wouldn’t be. The Dover would make an excellent choice for your first shoe if that’s the one you want. But so would any of the upteen whatever they make. The thing is what style are you looking for, what’s its intended purpose and what do you like? Just make sure it fits.

    Ideas are plenty and it really is an open book. There are no wrong choices w\Edward Green that is as long as it fits.

    Just took delivery of chestnut Utah dovers, this being my first experience with the leather. It appears very soft and this pair being unlined kind of makes me nervous has anyone had issues with the leather tearing?

    Man I almost went for those but went to Look for them the next day and they were gone. Those are the D width correct? Congratulations!! Beautiful boot.

    Thanks and yes, they were “D” width. I actually took a chance as the 82 Last in 11UK is usually too snug but these were a perfect fit!

    Brian is great to work with also. Even included a pair of EG Trees which was an unexpected bonus.

    Was coffee suede discontinued? If so, did anything replace it?

    Yes, Coffee suede went out a year or so ago - and it's been replaced by Snuff suede. I've got a pair of Snuff Belgravias which are rather fantastic.

    If it's any consolation, in three years of working at the Jermyn St. store I never once saw a pair of anything in Utah which had torn!

    Thanks, for a few years I considered getting something made up in coffee suede, but never got around to it.

    How would you compare snuff suede to tobacco suede? Is one more seasonal? Trying to assess the difference and determine which one to go for. Thinking of either a Camden or one of the slip on models.

    No problem! I'd say Snuff is better than Tobacco: the former has a darker colour & richer texture, which therefore means it's more versatile and works well with a greater range of colours. To my mind, Tobacco was always a bit too bright and only worked as a Spring/Summer colour.

    I have seen a Camden and a Piccadilly in Snuff - both look really good.
