came across a vintage EG catalog...
did not realize that EG once did a bit loafer...the Millfield looks quite interesting...
I suppose you will find out exactly what color the Aksels are upon delivery of the pair you ordered. Please let me know, once they arrive. I did see the pair on eBay, and I recognize they are the same style. I simply cannot tell if the pair at DSW is indeed Dark Oak.
FYI, Ralph Lauren sold a run of Edward Green shoes within the last few years that were largely Edwardian, Burnt Pine, and Hazel. They had a few styles left this past winter at the Rhinelander Mansion store. I believe this run included the Aksel, or a very similar oxford style, that was not Dark Oak.
I really hope your pair of Aksels are Dark Oak, or Burnt Pine at the least! These are some of the lowest prices I have encountered recently on Edward Green shoes. Thus, I am sure some of this stock will quickly reappear on eBay for healthy markups.
As you can see they're the odd ones out. 3 other Carmina's on the way. EG is usually out of my budget but the sale from Skoak was perfect!
Congrats on a great deal :) I love the westminster on 888, probably my favourite shoe
