Thanks. Maybe I should say that I like my pair. Think edwardian has a bigger span of colors than dark oak do and some I don´t like at all.

Any top down pics of the 890 vs the 82 or vs the MH71 possibly?

Nightshade on that style is so sharp. Rich and classy but modern

For what ever reason every 890 lasted shoe has been a whole cut style shoe newbury, ladbroke etc.

Well I'm certainly glad I got my Doak Calf\Walnut CC Galways in the good old Doak days.

Both Hazel and Pine are underestimated colors IMO. I've always lived Edwardian, especially for brogues. The lighter color brings out the punching really nicely.

As much as EG doesnt fit me well the want for those new Laughtons is strong.

Leaves,

 

Not sure if you saw it, but a few pages back I had asked if EB has any saddle style? Also wondering if they have a side gusset oxford like this EG you posted a while back:

Thanks!

I do not recall seeing this pair. They are incredibly creative. The Kibworth is a fantastic style.

Bonafé has a saddle shoe, it looks like this:

 

Here are two side gusset styles:

Any without the faux laces? Those always strike me as unnecessary in this style. Thanks for checking on this!

Recent EB two tone boot arrived from Skoak (along with a wholecut Carmina in black).  Quick delivery as usual and great customer service.  The boots were a bit squished from the packaging (the suede shaft was folded over) and the calf leather seems to crease pretty easily.  Construction is great.  The sizing on the 363MOD  last works well for me in the toebox width and instep (slightly high) but the heel is roomier than I'd like.   I haven't given up on the 363 MOD but I'd like to give the 946 a try as well.

 

For comparison:

Carmina Rain: 10 UK (extra length, good width in toebox, slight heel slippage)

Carmina Soller: 10 UK (enough width for thicker socks and also some heel slippage)

EB 363MOD: 10 UK (high instep, similar width to Rain, modest heel slippage)

 

Allen Edmonds: 5 last 10EEE and 10.5 E in others.

I haven't posted a ton in this thread (or others) as I only started on SF about six months ago. So hello and thanks to all for the awesome pics and ideas posted here. The Skoak thread is consistently a top favorite thread.

Made my first purchase with Skoak a little whole ago. I'm in jeans almost everyday for work and have little need for black shoes. But I needed one awesome pair and picked up the Carmina wholecuts. I love em. The new EG wholecut looks pretty spectacular as well. Thanks to Skoak for the great service on these and for sizing help for an upcoming pair of EGs (can't wait for the Shanklin).
