As I think I mentioned in my first post here, I blame SF for getting me hooked on Edward Green shoes. Over the last few years, I've accumulated a modest collection:
- Chelsea captoe in black on the 888 last
- Ladbroke in black on the 888
- Beaulieu in Dark Oak on the 888
- Southwold in Dark Oak on the 888
And I just picked up a pair of the Brummell in Edwardian Antique on the 82 last.
However, I'm still considering a couple more additions to round out the collection. Locally and in my regular D width I could get the Dover in Dark Oak on the 606 and the Newbury in Burnt Pine on the 888,
BUT, I'm currently lusting after the Inverness in Antique Burgundy and the Westminster in black on the 888.
I wear suits and dress shoes all week, so I can sort of justify adding a couple more pairs to the rotation. But there's the fiction of practicality, and then there's reality of aesthetic indulgence.
What sayest though, sartorial sages of SF: which two of the four listed there (Dover, Newbury, Inverness and Westminster) would you go for to round out the collection and why?
Thanks in advance.
