Mine should be here soon then. Ordered the exact same pair (not completely sure on the color) March 20th. Didn't think to order the nails on the toe though. Great-looking shoes.
Thanks. Where did you order yours from? After a couple of very slow experiences from US retailers, I went with the Burlington Arcade store in London. I don't know if there was a causal relationship, but I did get my shoes much faster.

Didn't you get the Vass Oxford Medallions in cognac too? Just got those earlier this week.
Yup, I sure did. Did you also get them in cognac? They're stunning shoes, aren't they?

Sure you're not interested in those burnt pine RLPL loafers I have, Jcusey?
What size are they, again? As I recall, they were too big for me...

Ordered EG Stowes from Malouf's in Burlingame, CA. Sam's a great guy. He's thinking of making up bumper stickers that say SHOES- MY DRUG OF CHOICE Yep- Cognac. They are stunning shoes. I think I'm doing a Vulcan shoe-mind meld. Don't think I want to ask you how hard I'm going to have to work to keep up this habit. RLPLs are 10/10.5Es. A Harris will be making me some pics in the next couple of days.

If I may ask, which model and last are the loafers? Has anyone special ordered a Stowe - or any other, for that matter - with one of the several patterns of toe medallions? I'm curious as to what they look like since I have only ever seen one employed.

Plus they have some sort of olive-y green colour
I've seen this leather used on a pair of EG cap-toes. I'm not sure which, but think either the Berkeley or the Cadogan. A sales assistant in a shoe shop wore them. What struck me most about them was the fact that the toe-cap almost seemed black, and that you could hardly see that the rest of the shoe was olive. I only noticed, because he was fitting me with a pair of EG's I ordered, so I was a lot closer to this shoes than I normally would have been.

I specified the brass brads on the tip.
Jcusey, Why did you specify the brass brads? What is their purpose? It just may be something I might specify in the future, as my shoes wear very fast at the tips. MtB

The guy was from Shoes and Shirts right? I've seen his shoes too .

That is what the toe brads are meant for, to reduce wear at the tips. I find that it does an O.K job, but nothing like a full metal toe insert. MtB, when you order your next Greens, ask them for the toe inserts, it is gratis.

One of the shops that I frequent has a couple of Moreschi models in blue peccary. It's not quite as garish as you might imagine.
I used to think blue shoes for men (suede or otherwise), were the height of tastelessness. Until last year that was, when I discovered.....no, not Smirnov, but a pair of Sutor Mantellassi loafers in blue "cervo" (stag skin). Alright, they were in a Sale and heavily reduced so I took pity on them and bought them. The shoes were quite cheap, they will not last very long (the leather is extremely soft) but as casual summer shoes go, they are rather nice. That's the good thing about bargains, you can experiment.

That's the guy.   It's not the shoe colour I personally would choose, but it looked a LOT better than I thought it would.

Thanks, I'll keep the full metal toe insert in mind. The fact that it's gratis just makes it so much the better... I love this forum: It gives me all kinds of tips and ideas I would never have known existed   . A very big thankyou to j, Steve B., and the contributing members. By the way T4phage, nice avatar. A self portrait perhaps?   How big is the blowup of the picture? O, and how are your Berluti's holding up? I have been on the lookout, but haven't spotted any likely 'candidates' yet... MtB

Talking about blue shoes these are most awesome. Blue shoes The SCRIBES are very well made. I had bought a pair in size 11 and they ran a little big. Went to exchange them for 10.5 and they were all out. I was very surprised. I have an identical pair in BRIGHT red. Wearing them with blue suits always gets comments. -

Oscar, Do you have a photo of the red Scribes you could post?

jcusey - your Stowes are beautiful. Did you request a specific color for the sides of the sole and the heel, or did they make the decision to stain it brown? Anyone have non-catalog pics of Acorn antique? I'm looking for light colored 3-eyelet plain toed blucher, but I don't want it to be as light as that tan shoe referenced earlier nor as dark as Edwardian Antique. Not interested in light blue either.

Learning how to use that new fangled digital camera. Where does the film go? May have to ask my 7 year old.

Found the Scribes you were probably talking about. Nice.

Perhaps this would be better with the navy suit.

Dorian: I sent them down to A Harris to take a look at. Hopefully he'll post the answer to your question.
