    Thanks fellas!



    Yup, on a dainite sole as well. Only G&G could cut a RTW shoe on a heavyweight sole so much finesse. And I think you all know how I feel about EG, but no one does this better than G&G!

    That apron stitching on that Hove is very elegant, I'm a fan...

    Hey aportnoy, this is not standard Hove design. To me this looks like Isham. Hove only has 4 eyelets and heel counter. Isham on the other hand has 5 eyelets and no heel coutner but this "wishbone" line thath stretches across the sides.

    Is there any difference in price/perks of ordering directly from Tony/Dean versus using bespoke england? I feel that if I wanted something very standard in an MTO It would be easier to use the selection tabs but often times I want some help emulating certain features I've seen in MTOs from this thread...

    Pricewise though are they the same?

    It look like Isham to me, I have a pair of Isham look very similar to this pair.

    Price wise, they seem comparable from their websites. Nick is currently offering free trees and shipping, so I would be compelled to give him a try first...

    I think it is defaulted not to charge tree and shipping at BE site.
