Just got three pairs back from a recraft. Amazing work done by EG. Solidified my love of the brand. I was surprised by how quickly they turned them around also - about 2.5 months from the states and back. Asquith in dark oak: Westminster in mahogany country calf: Banbury in mocha suede:
The EG Westminster on the 888 is one of my favorite shoes. I now have 4 pairs - each on a different type of leather. All very distinct from one another IMO.

When I say slightly I mean very slightly. I have 9 pairs in dark oak and if you told me these were dark oak I'd probably believe you. There is some variance in dark oak and my Beaulieu's in dark oak are extremely close to these in Hazel. My first pair in Hazel and it is a great color. Thanks for the PSA.
Will report back. Still haven't even got my confirmation that they shipped - still In Process. Hopefully I'll have them this week, but I'm guessing they might not be here until next week. The 25% off coupon expires today - If I were you I'd take the gamble. Total with tax and shipping came to $530ish. They don't look like the Edwardian end of the spectrum to me based upon the DSW pics. Use the Sanderson as comparison. I know those aren't EG RL shoes, but I think it is a...
