    Looks like 202

    I'm going to guess 606.

    ^^^That color "Mole" is a very nice lighter color but just dark enough to contrast nicely with khakis and hide dirt and scuffs.

    what the hell is a Bristol? [​IMG]



    I'm out of all Vass. Current boot selections are Alden, Mantellassi, and I have two being MTO from a to be named later english maker. I'm eschewing the more elongated lasts and going with a more rounder toe now. I hope to have some St. Crispins in my future.

    And to keep this on track, I am getting a pair of these in suede [​IMG]

    Dinkelacker Rio Last, Correct?

    Hawthorne is the 505 and Mole is 202.

    C&J suede Belgraves are nice. I feel like that color goes with everything.

    Is the left pair actually the colour of orange sherbet or is it just the picture?

    More ginger/rust than orange sherbert.

    I really enjoy it. Kind of reminds me of G&G's fox suede. And the Dover... [​IMG]

    I just got one as my first EG, and I think I have caught the NST bug because of it!

    Been wearing these AE quite a bit and enjoying them.

    What do you wear these with? I have them and still haven't worn them.

    IMHO, that's a fall/winter shoe.
