EG Asquith, Dark Oak, 888 last?

Not dark oak, I coloured them myself with leather dye (saphir teinture francaise).
For the rest you are spot on.

These are Belgraves in Chestnut A Calf from the Handgrade collection. They were purchased at the C&J store in NYC this past weekend..

Best choice by far.

Have these same shoes and am more than happy with the look and quality, a real Traditional English looking shoe.

Very nice Belgraves. Good luck with them. CJ (handgrades) are lovely shoes.

These are Belgraves in Chestnut A Calf from the Handgrade collection. They were purchased at the C&J store in NYC this past weekend. I must have spent two hours there; I nearly went with the Belgraves in suede, but felt that these would be a more versatile for me. I tried quite a few shoes and nothing fit quite as well as the 337 last.
I considered the Weymouth, but the brogue pattern on the sides of the heel was something of a turnoff. Looked like a shower head or something?
I also tried the Bradford shell cordovan on the 341 last and it wore incredibly well. It wasn't quite what I was looking for, but I was intrigued by the Harlech which is the same cordovan, same sole. Apparently not too many of them out there; the store has sold four. Each had to be ordered, and now the manager is checking to see if one might be out there in my size.
There was another gentleman in the store who picked up five pairs of shoes. Most were loafers, from what I could tell. Apparently they were sample sizes? Didn't quite make out the price but my fiance who was with me thought she heard ~ $350. The guy seemed quite pleased that his size just happened to be their sample size... about 9.5 or so. What is the story with samples?
My fiance was intrigued by some of the slippers.

good looking shoes, enjoy wearing
