    It would likely be Dover for me as well E. Though I love many of EGs other models, the Dover is iconic and IMHO a shoe that no other maker does nearly as well.

    Though, I would probably opt for coffee suede over dark oak.

    Can one order the Dover in suede?

    I prefer a brown, pebble-grained Dover, in 888.

    If you've got the money you can do what you want. Leffot's in the book, for starters.

    The brown pebblegrain works very well for this.

    Those Dovers ae nice!

    At the risk of dating myself and sounding like a trekkie nerd, this question reminds me of the simulation that Capt. Kirk reprograms because he doesnt accept the premise of a no-win situation.

    Anyway, I would humbly submit the EG Falkirk on the 82 last - as someone else mentioned earlier, EG does the Dover better than anyone else, but I've never really seen the Falkirk's broguing done by anyone else, really . . .

    Inverness on the 888 - in dark oak.

    This -- so damn versatile.

    a relative term. give me the vash or carmina anytime over the Dover. imo the heel counter is not corresponding to the apron. discuss...

    Asquith. That type of brogue is my favorite shoe style. Can't decide between dark brown or black though.
