Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy - Page 40

I can't speak for lee but I think his issue is the derby lacing/captoe/brogueing which makes for an odd combo.

I think the captoe was an RL feature. I believe the standard EG saddle shoe in this style does not have the captoe but generally has a medallion (although Leffot's blog offers up only MTO examples) - so I think both models are "busy" in different ways:

Here are the pics of mine:
And, no. They didn't come with the trees.

I like them quite a bit.

Does EG have a 5 eyelet plain toe blucher? I'm sure they must, but any idea what it's called?

All, I've seen this raised several times (even in this thread) with no conclusive answer. Perhaps there isnt one. Is EG's standard width E or D?

I've seen it sometimes characterized as EG sells a UK E which is equivalent to a US D. If that is the case, why do many retailers in the US stock D widths as standard?

Perhaps there is no standard and EG has two common widths. If that is the case I'm curious to know how two of their biggest US retailers (Leffot and Leather Soul) made the decision to carry different widths for their RTW shoes and I wonder what was EG's advice to the companies. Perhaps West Coast Americans have wider feet?

Regarding EG's recommendation to LS and Leffot, I guess you can always ask Tom and Steven respectively. I typically wear US D (sometimes E depending on the maker) and for EG, the E fitting is excellent. Others may have different experiences though.

I believe EG has three UK widths: D-narrow, E-regular, and F-wide

As far as I know the UK E is a US D, and the UK F would correlate to a US E. I'm pretty sure they don't make anything wider.

EG have a "G" width which is similar to a "EEE" My understanding is the "F" is quite wide.

I will be in that part of London on Monday and if I have time will drop in at EG. I was looking to avoid this sale and get two pairs in the winter sale but could be tempted.
