    Two different shoe designs, different material hatch grain vs calf, different lasts, and colors are different. Oak hatch is darker.

    I placed an order for mahogany cc, DOAK, and hove. I don't think I'll regret it. The apron is the most beautiful detail on any shoe and brown derbies are very versatile for business casual. If you were trying to only have 5 shoes then no but for the average sfer you can fit both.

    +1 to the above. I have a DOak Dover with a Mahogany CC Dover and a Willow Dover on order. They are all different enough to me to justify them all!

    Quote:Those would be too close for me - each a slight variation on a similar theme, and each getting half the amount of wear as a consequence. For any given outfit or occasion that the Hove would be called upon, the Dover would work equally well. And vice versa. I try to avoid that kind of replication in the rotation, though it does get harder to accomplish with the more quality pairs one acquires. #firstworlproblems. ;-)

    Sign me up, especially if you are planning on ordering in one of the Bonafe grain colors.
    By the way I think long wing looks best on the round last, I cannot wear 363 last so it would have to be on 804 last.

    Thank you @Leaves I do not suppose Bonafe is willing to cut a pattern for that boot?

    @Leaves , Im very interested in getting those grain jumpers before the price increase but Im not sure what my Oscar size is. I just ordered a 7.5 in Rain, would that also be my Oscar size or should i go 1/2 size up? (also the smaller grain jumper is 8 anyway).

    Thanks!

    Perhaps it's this, for some reason SF and my iPad do not cooperate well but @rydenfan if you go on Bonafes official thread on the third page or post #73 I have posted pictures of Bonafe long wing model.

    @leaves I believe Bonafe has over 20 different grain colors and textures. Can you post grain color swatches like you did with Bonafe calf colors?

    Cross-post from the EG thread:

    Halifax in Gold Delapre on Dainite sole. MTO through @Skoaktiebolaget. As usual, best possible service, thank you guys!!!

    My first impression of Delapre: it's very soft, in a good way. I think they will gain a beautiful patina with regular wear.

    Thank you both! I'm very happy with how these came out, exactly as I was hoping for! Will use them a lot the coming months!
