Agreed. I need Oundle in my life.
I just tried on my TD shoes at Leffot - I was on my way to dinner so I didn't take them with me. The fit is the same (or at least should be). The difference is the finishing and the leather used seems to be a better quality - put side by side against the RTW of the same shoe the differences were very apparent. I'm very happy with how they came out and will post pics next week. That being said I wouldn't go TD in every shoe - just shoes were you want something truly special...
Just wanted to show something regarding EG shoe trees. The typically come in two types that most retailers sell/ provide with their shoes: 888/82 and 202/606. I have, however, gotten different truly lasted trees on two occasions. One was a special order and the other was a top drawer shoe. See below pictures for an 888 lasted tree and comparison against the 82/888 tree. Not sure how much EG would charge for these and what the other lasts look like. 888 lasted tree 888...
That's a lot of blue shell in the last week. And now I know who got the Ullwaters from Leffot in my size (I had been eyeing but never pulled the trigger). Glad you got them!! Enjoy!!
I won't comment on the overall wardrobe, but his Cucinelli jackets/vests always have me drooling.
I'm out for the Aderlay - want to get a pair - Edwardian is just too light for my liking. I might be in for Burnt Pine though. I'm in for zug if you can get it together, however, if it doesn't look likely by May I'm going for something else heavy duty (some kind of country calf) for next winter.
S K M - this is awesome if it works. If you were to tell me that you put as much effort into your day job as you do towards putting together EG GMTO I'd tell you that I'm sure that you are a top performer in whatever you do. Your effort to put these together (along with other GMTOs) is great (and appreciated), if not a little confusing as to the reason why (for me at least). Keep up the great work!!
Thanks Namor. Thinkderm- It was tough for me too. I literally have to make room in my closet for new pairs I have coming in which I hope to share with you all soon (including my first Top Drawer MTO).
Is that an Aderlay on the 202? Mahogany Country?
Are these Dovers? Thanks.
