    That is a nice shape.

    I'm kinda head Dover heels in love with the EG, though...

    Talk about doverkill.

    I prefer GGs from everything I've seen. I'm biased as I own several pairs though.

    Is the only difference between the Hove and the Isham the number of eyelets?

    Aside from the extra eyelet, the Isham has a balmoral like line going through the quarters...

    I like the way the Isham looks over the Hove personally. If I had to only have one split-toe it would be the Isham over the Dover

    I like the Isham's extra eyelet over the Hove, but I prefer the Dover over both of them.

    Yes, but not until September 2015. We have the Isham in Vintage Cedar inbound then.

    Give GG a chance, you never know until you try. I'm giving EG a chance, you can give GG a chance... :fistbump:

    Maybe...haha

    Is that loafer that Leaves posted on the MH71? That is a nice looking shape. Isham would look good. What is the Isham traditionally on? If I just google pics, what am I most likely to see?

    Without regard to the picture, I will note that G&G's "loafer" last is kn14. It is one of the best fitting loafer lasts that I know of, and own.
