Do you know where can I buy an EG shoe tree online for last 888?
They are based in UK. I think it largely depends on where you live.
Do your comments about burnt pine (not being pleasing on its own, but appealing with navy/mid-grey trousers) apply to burnt pine antique as well? I saw this picture, and I thought it might be one of my all-time favorite colors. I might be misled by the fact that I'm looking at the photo; unfortunately, I never got a chance to see this in store.
I believe you are right. I once was told 82/888 and 202/606 are different, but I checked with all my EG trees and found out they are all the same if the size and width the same. I think they even do not make half size trees?
Leffot sells or used to sell Edward Green shoe trees, however I don't see them listed right now. They sold them in two configurations one for 82\888 and one for 202/606. I ordered a pair of 202/606 shoe trees a couple of weeks ago and as it turns out these did not workout for my 89 last as I had hoped. I returned them and I am currently waiting on a pair of 82/888 shoe trees. When I spoke with them they said they received some, but have not yet received my size.
Long story short, you could always give them a call.
This could very well be, however when comparing the ones 202/606 I received from Leffot to the ones I have for my Galway 82 Last, the 202/606 were definitely wider.
