Someone else on the forum suggested a particular C&J monk strap for a middle/low instep but I have to say I love my pair of Galways. Unfortunately in this metropolis of 6 million people (Atlanta) the only vendor of Edward Green intown (Sid Mashburn) doesn't stock the double monk so I'll have to order.
My Westminsters fit well and I have a low instep. Be aware the straps for the buckle is leather and not elastic so margin for error is pretty low.

I too have a lower instep. My Westminsters fit me well. They are a D width (slightly narrow), which helps.

Very nice. Perfect color crup for that shoe.

Sorry for the derailment - now back to your usual programming.

In my experience crup, once broken in, becomes quite soft even though it is thicker and heavier than calf.

I've been drooling over those shoes for a couple years!!

These are not mine. For MTO's, Skoaktiebolaget has the best prices from what I can tell.

Very Nice colors...and model...

Been watching this thread from afar and drooling at the beautiful selections and have decided to take the plunge and have a couple questions:

Living in the DC metro area, my B&M buying choices are Sky Valet and Brooks Brothers, even though my BB does not carry them in stock, they are willing to have several shipped to the store for me to try on. This is great but it seems to me that their prices are a couple hundred dollars more than some of the online retailers, is this because they include the shoe trees? Also, the corporate discount is a nice perk.

My first choice would be the Galway but with winter coming to an end, it seems more practical for me to order something that I can wear all year and buy those next fall. Does EG retailers carry the Galway all year?

I'm looking at the following at Brook Brothers:

EG Leather Medallion Cap Toes in Grey




EG Wingtip Bals in Burgundy Antique



Anyone know what last these are on and have a pic of them in the wild?

Thoughts appreciated!

Are they both on the 888? They seem to have the same toe box.

First, I think you made an outstanding decision. You've chosen to get a shoe from Edward Green. Now you have a number of great vendors you can purchase your shoes from. I have purchased mine from a couple of different places and I have always received the best customer service regardless of where I chose to purchase them from. If you have established your shoe size already in any number of the other decent brands you should be able to get sizing recommendations here from forum members or even from the vendor you decide to purchase your shoes from. At times having the ability to return an item for cash or in store credit might not be a bad thing especially when buying a specific Last for the first time. This method has worked for a good majority of the people who frequent this board. We all had to start somewhere and it's not always possible to try them on before making a purchase.  Brooks Brothers however is great if you need that secure feeling of trying it on prior to purchase. Keep in mind however that their selection is limited and you might be able to find a better deal if you are willing to order from the internet. I would highly recommend Skoaktiebolaget and I think you should at least take a look at what they have and their prices before making a decision.

 

 

Good Luck!!!!

Are you going to wait for the corporate sale? It'll be 30% off!
