Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy - Page 147

My wife doesn't understand the obsession... but she tolerates it. And for that I am grateful.

It does help to have the shoe purchases sent to my work smile.gif

Funny to read about how others GF/wives think about buying shoes and clothes.

My wife think it´s fun when i buy something i like and she is always the first person i show my new stuff. I´m more interested in clothes so i´m the one who gives her advice about what to buy smile.gif She has her own job and takes pride in paying for her own stuff, as i do. Never had a comment about anything.

Ah, I forgot to mention that my wife is in the same boat. She actually makes a bit more money than I do hah hah.  Very secure in her own purchases/decisions etc and very much celebrates stuff that makes me happy.

Quick sizing question:
If i am a 7.5UK on virtually all C&J lasts (standard width), what would that correspond to in the 888 F widths. I am under the impression that the 888 fits slightly narrow so i would be able to take the same 7.5UK

(Trying to take advantage of the Edwards of Manchester sale FYI)?

Thanks

I wear a half size up from C&J; however, I also stay consistent with the "E" width though on both brands.

Sizing question would like to seek advise from you all:

Alden Barrie = US 8D
Allen Edmonds = US 8D
Grenson = UK 7
C&J 337 = UK 7E

What should be the size to choose for EG 202, and what fit/width?

By the way, what is the different between fit/width E & F?

Thanks.

Anyone have experience ordering MTO in Edwardian calf? I see so many variations of it online that it's hard to pinpoint how the leather will look in the final product. I have a swatch EG sent me, but I get the sense that the hand finishing can really have a dramatic effect on the outcome.

Anyone have experience?

I believe they offer both edwardian and edwardian antique, the latter being a little more burnished about the toe & heel and slightly darker over all. The differences you are seeing are probably due to the fact that the leather is so light that they will inevitably darken once you begin your care regimen. So edwardian shoes will look different over time. My first pair ultimately turned out closer to chestnut antique. I didn't keep the second pair long enough to post results.

These Ishams are flat edwardian:



These Falkirks are edwardian antique:

All antiqued EG shoes are hand finished, so there really is no way of knowing exactly how they will turn out. Depends on the mood of the craftsman antiquing them I guess, it's all part of the charm. smile.gif This model (Asquith) is from our stock line and they are in Edwardian, but I've seen both lighter and darker versions.

Crat, EG should hire you to antique their shoes. You do a better job then them icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Crat that shine is wonderful, what technique and products do you use?
post #2203 of 13110
I had a pair in Edwardian Antique and eventually darkened them. There should be an original picture in this thread.

Wow - these look beautiful. EG at it's best (the asquith on the 888 is one of my all time favourite shoes, especially when polished as nicely as these)!

Thanks. Those photos look like the ones I've seen online, but the swatch I have is completely different. I suppose it ages to something like a lighter version of EG's chestnut? That seems like a much more handsome color than the initial.
