    Heschung derbies are fine, but much more CM in my view. I have a pair of brown suede (for CM fits). I tried on a pair in black pebbled grain, thinking they would work with non-CM fits, but they were a no go.

    To me, Ann D derbies look much better worn than on the shelf, where they can look overly bulbous.

    Too bad Damir Doma doesn't make any good derbies (or anything else) any more.

    Re: Derbys

    I personally think the shape of some of Dries derbys is good. Also has that round toe and taper to the waist. Too bad the quality isn't great, or at least worse than Raf from what I remember about the ones I tried on.

    I have Dries derbies and agree the shape and style are really strong.

    I know there has been some critical commentary here about the quality of Dries derbies, but I have had no complaints. No, they are not as good as my EGs or Lobbs, but those comparisons are not appropriate.

    If you are looking for a good non-CM derby that is easier to find at retail than Raf derbies (which I have not seen stocked in a few seasons), I recommend those from Dries.

    Thanks man! Love the way you wear EK stuff.

    Agree. The casentino field shirt is one of my favorites, and the cord fatigues are super versatile
