    i wonder how different the finishing would be IE waist treatment etc



    is this including VAT ETC?


    Yeah good question, the stock dover comes with a double leather sole all the way through (not HAF) so I guess the waist is relatively flat.

    Assuming you went for a double leather sole the options on the waist would be somewhat limited. I would expect EG to encourage a HAF sole if you wanted something doing, IE nails, bevelling etc.

    I'm down in London in a couple of weeks, If I get chance I'll try and pop in to see what they suggest.

    Thanks. Will try and take more this week...

    I have been working with Carmina in Madrid for quite a few years. I place orders with them directly.


    Can you describe midnight? Dark navy? dark gray?

    I actually much prefer the brass buckle. Looks more old school in my opinion. And also my wedding ring is gold so I prefer any trinkets to match that.

    Perhaps my humor was lost in an old thread referring to a pair of blue Vass. Anyway, buckle looks great with that color combination. And yes, gentleman, I know you can change a buckle.

    I don't know what you are referring to but I think you've got me mistaken for someone else

    Is this with or without VAT. If it is without VAT then the price for us Americans is £732. This is still steep for the pair of shoes I must admit that the EG prices are slowly turning me away from their offerings. IMHO for those prices I am better off visiting Austro-Hungarians and getting fully bespoke shoes.
