Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy - Page 411

post #6151 of 9932

Just picked up the EG Wells in Dark Oak Antiqued on 82 last from Brooks Brothers.  Used my corporate discount, and of course shoe trees were included:

Anyone here own the Wells?  It's gorgeous and extremely versatile.  Wish I had purchased it sooner, and surprised it's not more popular on this thread.

Just make sure you get the old Weymouth. EG first sent me the Weymouth II which looks more like a Chelsea (I only specified Weymouth in my order). I did not even know there was a Weymouth II and was rather surprised when I opened the box I had waited for for 6 months. They of course took them back and made me the old Weymouths, but I had to wait another 5 months...

I do, in dark oak. It is indeed versatile and quite good looking. Congrats.

I ordered my Shannon's last March, and my Oakdales in September and both arrived in December, so the Shannon's took 9 months and the Oakdales 3 months.

This is a grail shoe for me. I have a big birthday this year so I will be getting one way or the other if EG will make. For me it would need to be 888 last, HAF sole and Edwardian (preferably antiqued) or a similar color.

Standard EG shoes are 5 840 SEK ex VAT (7300 SEK inc. VAT within the EU). 5 840 SEK about $895 with today's currency exchange rate.

Dover and other shoes with hand stitched details and boots are about 10-15% more.

To avoid the MTO fee you need 6 people ordering the exact same model and make-up (same last, sole, width, everything). Shipping from us is $45 world wide.

How about boots such as Alderlays, what are you prices of those? Also, I've read that EG has split up their MTO programme so that the "basic" part is as describes above (i.e. a standard design on a chosen last in chosen leather with chosen soles) whereas the other programme offers changes of patterns etc. Can you confirm this, and in that case how much can be changed (will they fx do a full shearling lining?) and how much is the up charge?

 

Thanks in advance!

That price would make it easier to get six I am sure. PM sent.

I've been following and I'm likely in. Where do things stand on the specs? I'm pretty flexible.

Mohagony country calf
Rosewood country calf

I'm considering a boot or shoe (probably a shortwing) on dainite for casual use. I am giving serious thought to one of the two above leathers/colors. Anyone own both colors, or have a side by side pic? Thoughts on one over the other? The new Unipair boot in Mohagony has some appeal to me. Thanks in advance for the feedback.

Here is where we are today - Weymouth in Edwardian Antique, lasts between 888 and 82 (I prefer 888) natural edge and the HAF sole. I am working on final pricing. I think we have 3 or 4 people -- we need 6. Let me know your preference on the last.

I prefer 888 also. Per Leaves' prior post we would have to decide on same width. I slightly prefer D, however I can go with E.

^I do not believe we all need to have the same width. I am an "F" width. That would not make sense to me. Same last yes - but width? That doesn't make sense to me.
post #6163 of 9932
You can choose different widths I believe, everything else has to be the same though

That makes sense to me and is consistent with other GMTOs.

I prefer the Rosewood country calf but I may be biased!
