9.5 I guess.
EG suede is fantastic. I have seen a suede Inverness in person before, and it looks good. Generally speaking, you can query this sort of thing through Google Images, and there are usually plenty of image links back to Style Forum and to other sites.
Much of the appeal of Edward Green for me has to do with the burnishing and antique of the leather, and these attributes are missing with suede. This is part of the reason why if I were to seriously consider the Nevis on any sole, I would opt for brown leather of some shade, not country calf, not suede, not buckskin. Just my $0.02.
I would second @smoothie1 thoughts on EGs suede based on the suede that is on my calf and suede Galways. However if I ere to get a suede shoe from EG it would probably be either aDover or a capote shoe where there wasn't so much brogue.
I can fully follow the reasoning behind the comments above; however, what I was asking was not if suede is a good alternative to calf, but if a blind brogue like the Inverness would look good in suede, or I should stay more classic with the Malvern Anyway, I completely agree that calf develops a much nicer patina over time and as such is more fun caring for. It's just that suede is so... nice.

Whether to choose the Malvern or Inverness is a matter of personal taste. The designs feature subtle differences. I liken your question to asking which is better, an all Zug Galway or Zug-suede combination. One may be more common, or more traditional, but that may have little influence on that which an individual prefers. Also, this question has been posed here and/or in other threads in the past, so a search could be fruitful for a comparison and other opinions.
I have a Malvern in Mole suede; I like the Malvern more than the Inverness. Also, you may be able to find one more easily as a stock item from stores. I recall Saks and a few other retailers stocking suede Malverns on the 202 in the past. I don't know if this is a current stock item for anyone. Good luck in your search. Cheers.
Awesome, post some pictures please. Hey what happened to Alderley? You have not receive it yet?
Hey guys how many folks for Rosewood do you have? Still 2 and a half?
Guys I have an edge trim question...
Is this EG natural or something else?
These look lighter to me
This is the last count of everything that I am aware of. So yes, last count is 2 1/2 for Rosewood.
EG Nevis MTO Choices
Rosewood CC on Double Dainite
@anderz second choice should Almond not work out
Almond CC on Double Dainite
@anderz first choice
Mahogany CC on Double Dainite Sole
We're getting close but remember we need 6 people to complete an MTO. So put in your vote now
I'm in for rosewood please
Funny how the anonymous Google polls suggested more interested parties for the boots than the qualified list reveals...
Either way, I'm glad you guys at least get to see this Nevis business done.
Then we can more on to some derbies or chukkas, I hope...
still, solid interests when the names got listed
I'd be interested in a smooth calf Nevis in Dark Oak. It's Edward Greens most expensive shoe/boot and the country grain just makes it not as versatile as I'd like.
However, I'll consider dark brown Utah as well as I've got an itch for hatch grain that I'd like to scratch.
Are we talking storm welt and hidden eyelets for all make ups or is that something to be decided on? With so many for MCC I was thinking of posting a deposit link.
