One of them (Paul Stuart) came up on eBay recently and people questioned whether this was an EG shoe.

Not a maker, a designer. FYI. Worked with Alfred Sargent and others. Now designing shoes for Grenson.

Superb is a bit of an hyperbole.

I have just taken delivery of a pair I won on British Ebay. They are very comfortable, have a suspicious looking leather grain and are 'Made in Belgium'.

Can't attest to the suspicious leather phenomenon, except that you never quite know with ebay. Oliver Sweeney's are made by hand in Britain, and of the finest Italian leather. You may want to double check, but hey, at least they're comfortable. Take a look at the Sweeney website - their's are great looking.

Their website is hard to reach at the moment, but everywhere else suggests they are made in Italy eg

They have apparently also been made in South Africa:

In the last twenty or so years, Oliver Sweeney (formerly of Alan McAfee) has had his shoes produced about everywhere. He started off with classic English styles, made in England, then by Ambiorix in Belgium, moved to South Africa (and probably a few more countries).

In the last eight or so years, he has abandoned welted footwear for (almost) gentleman in favour of Blake-stitched Italian stuff for chavs.

My new from Ebay pair are marked 'Oliver Sweeney for Harrods' and, as I said, 'Made in Belgium'. I have been wearing them all day and they are dashed comfortable. I imagine they are several years old (though unworn until today) and so I escape charges of chaviness and remain almost a gentleman.
