    In hindsight the Asquith in Doak would have worked well instead of the Chelsea for me, however the Chelsea is still great. Great choice on the Chelsea on the 82 in Black, I'm really glad I bought a pair.

    The Falkirk in Edwardian that I'm getting fills a fun slot for me, however I still wouldn't mind getting the Harrogate in calf/suede.

    Considering having a pair over Dovers made up in Burnt Pine Antique. What do you guys that have seen Burt Pine IRL think about the color? Is it more like a dark tan color (with a hues of orange) or more like a lighter shade of dark brown, say like Dark Oak, but then a few shades lighter?

    I think it's funny we can call a faux wingtip in burgundy a "staple" style. :slayer:

    Actually excited about the Falkirk too. I've been contemplating letting go of my tan cap toes if they're too close. Too many shoes...

    A burgundy shoe seems to be almost a must for me. Whether the Inverness is a staple or not, well it seems way to nice to pass it up. I do think some might consider it a staple just because most EG retailers tend to stock it in this same exact configuration.


    I can hardly wait for the Falkirk as well, but I'm trying my best to think of other things. Like the Dover due to arrive about a month prior and that next shoe or boot whatever that might be. LOL

    I always thought burnt pine seemed to have a little green when seen in person. Burnt pine is not a bad color I just think edwardian and doak are better choices, I also prefer hazel.

    Thanks for the info.
    Burnt Pine having some green in it surprises me, I would't have thought that based on the pictures I have seen of the color on the web.

    I have also considered Edwardian, but in pictures it appears too light for my taste. I agree that you cannot go wrong with Dark Oak, but about half of my E.G. shoes are already in that color and would like to try something new.

    Take a look at hazel. Also EG colors vary from time to time. The variances in DOAK have been discussed here in the past. I ordered my edwaridan asquiths with extra burnishing to help with aesthetics.
