   decent looking shoe & the perfect color for grain IMO

This - along with that swan neck detailing around the vamp also favoured by EG. Masterpiece is regarded as slightly superior to EG quality so far ahead of C&J = the normal Poulsen sub-out maker.

In fact they look just like a Masterpiece pair I had from Paul Stuart some years ago.

Thanks for all the replies! I will pass on these ones then.

Agree with this from experience (thanks to you!), but I must say that EG does a superior "finishing" job. Coloring and patina is excellent

The Copley Family. More members on the way, possibly.

Should anyone want to check it out and PM me feedback regarding models or brands I've missed I'd be grateful. Its still under construction though.

Chris, you're from NL? I thought you were a brit?

Great pair. The Cadogan is an awesome model.

I have to respectfully disagree. I've had two and they are not as substantial as Alden, and were finished no better. Their lasts are sleeker than Alden.

Also, the "wavy" toe cap on these is maddening.

Vass. It's not even close.

Also, the big money makers do exquisite work (GG, EG, St. Crispin's, etc.).

+1. EG shell is the best in the business. The finishing and consistency is unparalleled IMO.

examples to back this up?

Carmina used to be shell masters, I think their quality has gone downhill (from the photos I've seen)

Okay. You're putting me to work. What do you want to see?

I can post images of Vass, Alden, St.C and EG shell. Remember that I am lazy though.

edit: also posted CJ and AC.

The interwebz demands your diligence...

But if you must, how about one good shot of all four? confused.gif
