Nominate your favorite e. green shoe - Page 4

Or the Stowe. The Stowe has a *very* small buckle, tucked away on the shoe's side. The shoe doesn't look like a traditional monkstrap style, as do the walpole and troon.

The Stowe is jaw-droppingly beautiful (for me at least) koji

I think there is yet another RLPL model (other than those already mentioned) with a very short monk strap. A salesman at the NY store described it to me back in 2002, but I've forgotten the name.

The monk models that I'm aware from EG are: Yardley (split toe, usually on the 606 last) Falmouth (fudge welt) Troon Walpole Westminster (double monk) Is there another model specifically made for RLPL? koji

Stowe (I think that RL calls the model the Wakely or something like that): I don't know if RL has ever had the Oundle, but it's very similar to the Stowe.

Thank you. Wakely/Stowe, that's the one . . . beautiful. Out of curiousity, what types of outfits do you think that particular model meshes best with?

*sigh* Staring at that picture is going to be the highlight of my day koji

The Stowe goes with any number of suits, although it is one of the most elegant models you will ever see, so I would avoid thick tweeds and corduroy.

I couldn't resist answering the thread when I saw the title, and the quote below made replying even more tempting (Thank you jcusey ).

Two other thoughts: EG shoes are like Lay's potato chips: betcha can't buy just one pair. And even though the Chelsea is just a cap-toe bal, it would be difficult to find the exact same shoe from another manufacturer (the swan's neck stitching detail and the quality of EG's antiquing are very rare).
The 'easy' answer to the original question would be: "The pair I want to buy next". But since that is too easy: My first EG were a pair of Chelsea in dark oak. I like their simplicity. The only pair I might prefer over the Chelsea's is a pair of Windermere's (plain derby's) and precisely because of their simplicity. I have a pair of black ones and am considering another pair in burnt pine. Still, I may also come around to the Cardiff, thanks to you lot (you know who you are ). Colourwise, EG's have shown me the beauty of brown shoes. The colour I have a love/hate (more of the former than the latter) relation with is "clove", which is a suede colour. But for a following pair 'plain' leather will be the material of choice. Jcusey: you spoke very true words... When I've the money... MtB

Plymouth is a wing-tip adelaide:
I'm a bit out of my depth here with Edward Greens and all, but after poking around a bit and even asking a genuine owner of Edward Greens, I am forced to ask the following: What's an "adelaide"?

An "Adelaide" is a style where the broguing goes around the throat (where the lace holes are,) of the shoe. For example in Cleverley's catalogue: #5 is a wingtip Adelaide #2 is a captoe Adelaide

I think it's called a U-throat in the States. Basically there is no division between vamp and quarters. It's a whole cut with a cut-out (window) for the lacing bit.

Ah. Thanks. That clear it up.

After attending the Sky Valet trunk show and studying the poster I received therefrom intently, my vote goes to the Kingsway in dark oak (the "medwards") and the Lichfield in burnt pine.

Attlee with covered gores, 707, 404 or 82 last. Harrow or its lined version (Buxton?). Southwold in Edwardian Antique. Sussex (renamed something else -- Bamford?) on the 101 last.
