Oliver Wendell Holmes speaks! (And I concur.)
Those are outstanding. Great combination of shoes, laces, socks, and trousers. Maybe I'll amend my rating on Indigo from 9 to 8. It depends on the light. In certain light, they do seem brighter and bolder.
From the Leffot web site: Indigo Suede (center) | Cardinal Suede. I don't have links for all EG colors. I suspect all is a moving target, anyway. Browsing the Leffot site, you'll see a great variety.
Imagine a scale of conservative EG colors to wild colors, with Black at 1, Dark Oak at 2, Burgundy and Edwardian at 3, Indigo at 9, and Cardinal at 10. I would put Midnight at around 5 and Nightshade at around 6. Both colors are outside what most men would wear to the office in the legal, banking, or consulting professions. But neither of these colors draws much attention and I find them both to be tasteful with a suit and tie. I have a pair of Falkirk spectators in...
Funny, you say that. I was excited to pick up the Inverness in Burgundy at Brooks Brothers during their Corporate Sale. I went to the 346 Madison Avenue store and was also discouraged by the color. I found them to be sort of pink-brown. Certainly not Burgundy as I'd seen before on this model at Edward Green trunk shows. Didn't buy them.
Shoe trees are included in the Brooks Brothers prices for Edward Green shoes - that's about $130 built-in.
I tried on this shoe in the 346 Madison Avenue store. I believe this is EG's tobacco color. I didn't look at the box label to confirm, though.
I wear my Edward Greens to work every day in Manhattan. I carry a pair of Swims galoshes in my briefcase all the time and they make a big difference in rain or snow (up to about two inches). Not only does it help preserve the uppers, but it prolongs the life of the soles. Soles wear the most when they are wet.
I'm very happy with the 888. I have other EG shoes in that last, so I knew what I was getting. Very elegant lines to it. I'm on the thin side, so the 888 & 82 tend to look better on me than the 606 & 202.
