Are EG Stowes considered "hip?" Because I oh so dearly want to be hip, and I lust after those shoes daily. I, myself, am guilty of having a pair of clunky square-toed Kenneth Coles. *Sigh*, thankfully I've changed since that disaster of a $75 investment.
Brian: E.G stowes are not hip, they are much more than that. They are the epitany of real gentlemen style of yester-year. An E.G Stowe states: l have arrived. Good taste Brian; l lust after those shoes everyday as well. l also drool over the E.G Yardley monk, E.G malvern spectator, and these: l love the numbers 5, 6, 7. Some of the nicest looking shoes l have seen.
l love the number 7 shoe. lt's gr8 m8.
Here are some Artioli be-spoke. l love the shoe on the left. l am getting these made when the bloke comes out to Australia.
P.S: the Sultan of Brunae orders 1,000 pairs a year. He will wear a pair for 4 hours and then gets his servants to burn them. And l thought my m8 Frank was bad. He would destroy his E.G, Church's etc every 3 months. lt's true. None of the people l know look after their good expensive shoes. They chuck them out after a couple of months, Lobb or not, they don't care.
