    Are you able to notice a difference between the original last being used vs the original last not being used? Or have you discovered that it doesn't really make a difference?

    Anyone have any pics of the suede Dover in the wild? Love the look of these, would I be the same size as I am in my Suede Chukkas? Thanks,

    I luckily got 2 pair (snuff and tan) from NRO when Alden mistakenly made it through on a couple of their sales. I ordered non-stock sizes, so they took a long time to ship, but it was worth the wait and I'm glad I got the discounts!

    Haberdash has them for slightly lower than TSM or Leffot, but it can be iffy with them in terms of what width they send. They don't specify on their site and ended up sending me an E when I thought it was going to be the standard D

    Sherman Brothers in Philadelphia has lower in-store prices for shell. Not sure about suede. Would depend on your being in the area of course, since travel costs would negate the savings and then some.

    thanks everyone


    sherman's website has retail $488
    alden store in NYC has retail $488- said they wouldn't discount (and tax for me)
    harberdash has below retail, maybe a slight discount $460 but no HTTPS/SSL?

    In-store discount on shell at Sherman Bros. is about 10%. Calling might work. Can't hurt. Free shipping.
