    As a person who purchased the Beaulieu from SkoAB, I would agree the Beaulieu would be my preference. There are many styles of dark brown wingtips, with EG, or other makers. The Malvern is more traditional though so if you're still building up your shoe rotation, then maybe for now, the Malverns are more practical.

    For me, if they were my size, I would have picked up the Beaulieu and phased out an older burgundy Oxford in my collection.

    With the Inverness just received I probably would have gone with the Malvern hadn't it been in my size.

    I may be in for that bal boot with the burgundy suede shaft @RogerP so long as it's on single Dainite for sleekness.

    And that 2102B last is gorgeous. Is the instep that much higher than the 946 (which is perfect for me) ? @Leaves

    I'd probably order that Bonafè cap toe in an Adelaide style and different leather. It's a great silhouette.

    @buckeye00

    Congrats! I regret not snagging one in 7.5. I wanted to replace my alden grain NST and couldn't decide.

    I saw those this morning and used every ounce of restraint not to order.

    ^^Both gone now. Hope to get Shannon, Newbury and Laughton soon to replace them on the EG shelf.

    Leaves-
    I thought you were going to treat us to a host of pictures of the brandy willow calf Dovers today. Looking forward to seeing them when they become available. Thank you.
