    I have an MTO going right now on 202. I am very eager to see them but it will still be quite a few months...

    Thanks and thanks all ^. I would say Galway but I need to clear out some boots before I can justify more. The real weakness in my rotation is derbys. So a Dover may be in order. You will get credit if I go that route!

    In addition to shipping both ways, EG has confirmed that the quote also includes arranging for the shoes to be retrieved from one's home/work and dealing with all customs paperwork. Basically a no-hassle transaction. I live in the US.

    They look wonderful! [​IMG] May I ask what last they're on?


    By the way guys, I thought about doing a Dover MTO before SkoAB's price adjustment. As I mentioned earlier, I ain't the biggest fan of chiseled lasts and the Dover on the 606 isn't that appeling to me. Don't get me wrong, I love the makeup, but as I've said before: I'm more fond of rounder lasts.

    I actually saw Meermin's split toe derby on the Hiro last, which I found appealing. Although, I have never handled a Meermin shoe before, but does anyone of you guys know which one of EG's lasts would be the equivalent to Meermin's Hiro?

    This is the Meermin derby I'm talking about: http://meermin.es/articulo.php?idArt=4137#

    They look great, Congrats.

    However I'm just not convinced that would be a leather for me after seeing it used on a pair of Galways someone posted earlier.

    Possibly, however I have yet to make up my mind as to how exactly I want to go with something like this.

    That actually looks like the 606 to me. But if you want round, you can't go wrong with the 202. I think the 606 is deceiving because they shape the toe of the sole square. The actual shape of the toe of the upper is round.

    What kind of upper are you thinking, potato?

    These will be my first pair of EG's, so I'll play safe and go with the classic doak.

    I also checked out the 82 last, do you think that'll be too formal for a Dover? The thing is that it looks a little longer copmared to 202 on some pictures I've checked out. I also know that the 32 last is an option, but I've never seen that last in real life before.

    To do Dover on the 82 I think you'll have to go top drawer. That would be a significant cost increase. Don't know about the 32.

    I have learned that most default last/style combinations are that way for a reason i.e. asquith 888, dover 202, etc. A doak dover is about as good as it gets no need to reinvent the wheel IMO.

    This is what I would expect as well.

    Does EG do single MTO's or is it group only? Would like to get something like this done down the road..with different colored welt and sole edging likely
