Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy - Page 1527

Today: Inverness, 888, antique burgundy.


Could someone advice on how to pair cloud grey antique? Any pictures? I have the opportunity to purchase a pair of Asquiths in that color, but I'm hesitating since I've never seen the color in person.

Excellent choice indeed.

Does anyone have sizing advice for the 72 last? I'm around a 9E on the brannock.

 

I wear medium weight socks and for some last comparisons i'm an:

 

8.5 in Carmina's oscar

8.5 in Trubalance

9 for RL Lindricks

8.5 for Viberg 2030  

 

I'm leaning towards an 8.5UK. Does this sound about right? Thanks!

Have you tried EG before? Boots are easier to fit and 72 should be plenty forgiving, assuming you are going after the Kentmere.

Just becareful with width because EG E width = U.S. D width (for the most part, some last slightly narrower and others wider).

Trying on a pair or ordering with a return policy limits risk.

:D

need edward green advice!

good afternoon!

i own one pair of crockett and jones, and just ordered another.  i do like the first one, Drummond in 9 1/2 E

 

i always wanted to try edward green.  i consider myself a beginner.

 

1. should i buy from Leffot in new york? i live near Boston, i think there are no stores around here that have EG.

2. any model or last you recommend?  i have a bunion at the base of one big toe, shoe cannot be very tight around the ball of my foot.  the C&J shoes are great!

 

would love any advice!

 

thank you

bob

I would suggest going down to NY and trying a few EG models. Probably 202 last will be good for you.
Now here is the piece of common sense that you will probably not listen, you should stick with C&J
post #22904 of 29009
I was going to say 202 also (for shoes) but fully agree with Laufer........the best advice is stick with what you love. If C&J is perfect, stay there. I am still in pursuit of perfection but have wasted too much money trying to find it. Saint Crispin is as close as I have come after trying Everything including EG, John Lobb, G&G, etc..

Should you not listen to us, lasts come in different widths so a 606E or F or 89E or F may fit you better than a 202E (assuming you want a round toe) but only through trying on trial and error will you know for sure.

Welcome to the Rabbit Hole.

Edit: there is plenty of info on the web and this forum so you can kill the weekend researching what you think will fit you best based on other peoples thoughts and reviews.

Hard to say exactly what you should go with regards to models, there are just so many great shoes and boots from Edward Green. Part of the problem is that I have no idea what you have or don't have and what your needs or style is. The Galway and Dover are really considered two of the Icons however. Typically the Galway is easier to find in store on the 82 and the Dover on the 606. Of course if you want it bad enough you can order practically anything the make on almost any Last. There are of course other great models as well to include the Chelsea, Malvern, Inverness, Asquith, Westminster and many more. 

 

Besides going to New York you may want to consider going to a local Brooks Bros. They only have a few models they sell, but it's my understanding that they might be having another Corporate event in November and at 30% off with trees it certainly makes the few models they sell fairly attractive. You can always have an SA get you a few sizes to try on even if they don't have them in store.

 

I'd first have a look on the EG website, the Axels website, Skoaktiebolaget, Leffot, and Khakis of Carmel, and Unipair to get a taste of what EG has to offer. Of course with EG the have such an extensive catalogue of shoes and boots and the options are practically endless.

 

The big Lasts to really look at are the 202, 82, and 888 as these are the most common. Others such as the 606 for the Dover and 890 are not as common.
