Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy - Page 188

post #2806 of 13892
I lack the experience of many on the forum, so yes I am learning. In regards to contributing I did so earlier in this thread, in addition I have posted numerous PSAs regarding items others I knew were looking for. I help when I possibly can. Unless I'm sure regarding information, I don't pass it on. Additionally quite often people communicate via pm outside of the general forums. I'm sure at one time every member was new to the board. Before someone can educate they first have to learn. Certainly learning is advised before advising others how to proceed with their decisions.

From St. Crispin thread

Are the considered to be more on par with eg,s top drawer offerings?

From Alden thread

Thank goodness you've confined yourself to just a handful of threads and spared the remainder. you're a shitty poster and a hypocrite. if you ever decide to follow your own reasoning and share ideas and help educate then please go ahead. until then youre just a waste of bandwidth

Right opinions vary. How do you propose one learns if they dont ask questions. As I mentioned I'm new asking for advice isn't wrong. Of course the posts are similar in that they make requests for ideas for suede for the summer. I really don't get why anyone would get so angry regarding posts. Simply don't respond. I'm sure at some point someone took the time to educate you.

you dont need experience, just good sense and a little initiative. dont ask so many time consuming open-ended questions. frame the question in a way that benefits yourself and contributes to the general well-being and also interest of the thread. you wouldnt ask your boss open ended questions in hope that they would explain everything to you. instead you'd bring perhaps a handful of ideas and go from there. his time is valuable as are the poster's time.

you did some research, why didnt you post several images of perhaps a style, different colors of suede you liked? you'd more than likely receive valuable and worthwhile contributions from fellow posters while also contributing something worthwhile yourself

Point taken, constructive criticism is always welcomed.
post #2811 of 13892
this isnt a career, we arent coworkers. giving & receiving constructive criticism suggests a relationship based on mutual respect and equal contribution to the overall well being of said relationship. its time consuming. why do you expect anyone here to spend their time, constructively calling you an idiot, if not for their own amusement?

Don't worry about Namor, he's spent too much money on whatever shoe someone on here posts a picture of and at least two other people say they like and hates himself, thus the hostility.

You may wish to email EG for their most recent catalog (I posted last year's here somewhere). In addition, there are some one-off makeups that have found their way on this forum via image. If you search "EG site:styleforum.net" or "Edward Green styleforum" and then choose images, you should be on the fast track to some ideas.

Awesome pair of EG Shannons in Navy just popped up on eBay. Coincidentally made from suede. The stark difference in colors shows how hard it can be to photograph the material

Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)


 

I saw these as well.

 

It is kinda neat how they look so differently depending on how they were captured.

 

I'm not convinced this would be a good thing though.

 

I like the blue color better and I think I'd rather this always stood out.

Full suede Shannons, now that is a make-up I didn't think of.

Uni: the suede Dovers look amazing! I think I am slowly liking the idea of suede more.
