How does one participate? I gather an e-mail needs to be sent to EG? Any assistance getting in on this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks! Email EG and ask to be sent the list. State your size. They will e-mail the stock list prior to the opening On Thursday...

Quote: Originally Posted by a tailor jacket looks great. but stacking on trousers? Yes, good call. After I saw the pic...I double checked...length is correct. All I can think is that my pants must have slipped a bit when I was in the car. (I actually took them into Naresh today and we concluded that when I have them at my waist they are fine.) Gotta tighten up the braces! So the good news...didn't need to touch the pants. The...
Quote: Originally Posted by pledge Ok. Now that I have my order in for Vass, I've been considering the JL Vale and/or Chapel. I've read some older threads comparing the sizing of the 888 to the JL 8000. Does anyone here have any input? FWIW, I'm a 7/7/5D in the Grants. Also, any preferences for the Vale vs. the Chapel? Thanks so much. I am a 9.5/10 D in the Grant. I don't have the Vale or the Chapel, but have a number of 8000/7000 lasts....
Quote: Originally Posted by JohnnyCrockett Thank you, both! Do you know how the last fits relative to C&J's 337 and 341 lasts (I'm UK 9.5 E in both of those)? The last on the Dartmouth is 318. References to EG 82 or 202 would also work for me. Oddly enough, I'm 10.5/11D (I can do 10.5/11E also) in EG 82 and 202, but UK9.5E in the C&J lasts noted above...what's that about? That is odd. I am 9.5 UK in both C&J and EG
Quote: Originally Posted by jcriswel This is strange. You posted a perfectly legitimate question and never got an answer. You want to know if Barker Black is superior to Gaziano and Girling. I do not feel qualified to answer because I do not own a pair of either. In the interest of addressing your question, I will supply the following: Here is a quote from jcusey over at AAAC (he really knows his shoes): "Barker -- I have never seen these shoes...

No mention of them on their website. I am looking forward to the St. Crispin's visit...
Birthday fun!
I know this should just get thrown in the shoe porn thread, but I wanted it to highlight Leffot, a real treasure for shoe lovers. I went this past Saturday, empowered by my wife to select a birthday present. Came away with the following. Steven was great to work with. Has a very nice selection of EG (I was very tempted by the Perth on the 82, Southwold 888 and a Westminster double monk. Nice assortment of G&G, though most in the TG73 sharp...
