I think it's more of a deep bordeaux. Maybe a zinfandel. Or a griesvelt.

I'm trying to remember accurately, because it was back in February. The suede ones struck me as being very casual shoes. I saw myself wearing them with jeans, and I was having a hard time imagining much else. The brogueing, the color, the soles were all a bit much, but someone can probably pull them off really well. As for the calf, I honestly don't remember too much about them. The colors seemed much less innocuous and more subtle than the suede.

Grim, I feel like i have moved up one little step in the (unchartered) couture direction with navy....its a very interesting sense of liberation from the usual style norms.

I tried to order with CapitalOne to save the 3% forex transaction fee. Fail. It went thru with Amex. I didn't use proxy, I just put in the zip and USA under in the "county" space. Fingers crossed.

Awesome. Let us know how it works out for you. I bet, actually, that the navy will be quite subtle and interesting. Your comment almost makes me feel inadequate for not being more adventurous myself--of course, I could have ordered both.

You're a madman, VR. If I were you I'd arrange an alternative shipping plan as a backup; when these first went on sale a few months back, I corresponded with KG about them via email and they were quite firm that they wanted nothing to do with shipping them out of the country, even within the EU. Please let us know how it turns out, though. If it works, it would be quite the coup.

In the semi-annual EG sale thread, bengal stripe described the colors (all three, IIRC) as "extremely dark," and lined in "cardinal red." I realize now that tho I earlier described that as dark red, cardinal red sounds brighter than I imagined. Not that I mind. Speedster and Holdfast both get many and for helping make this happen.

I don't have them yet (obviously), but looking at the pictures, navy is definitely more conservative, and probably would not get noticed as anything out of the ordinary. Green would definitely be for the adventurous sort.

You guys really like the 202 last? I've never tried it on but these are definitely not my taste. grimslade when you get yours throw some pictures up here because I'm curious

Manton calls it blobby, but I think it's pretty classic. It's not hypermodern-looking, but it fits my feet well. Which counts for something. I've decided I prefer it, even in looks, to the G&G soft round. FWTW.

I had a single leather sole berkley in the 202 last in a size UK10.5 and loved the shoe...except that it was a touch too tight so i passed it along, I normally wear a UK11 in a 888 or 101 last, and found the 11UK in a 89 last too big.
The 202 is a classic ageless last IMO, the color navy (or deep red for that matter) on a double leather sole (personal weakness) gives it a touch of the *modern* on a simple shoe.

Regards.

I'm in for blue suede and dark green calfskin. For those who are on the fence, they look like this:

That's a pretty light blue...

I've got email confirmation of the order and the charge went thru Amex, I know it's all automatic process. I don't want to bother and be bothered with a proxy. If it falls thru, no big deal, it's not like I need another X pairs of EG.

I've had a simply massive number of requests.

I'm making no money on forward shipping (maybe a fiver per pair if I'm lucky with the weights/insurance costs) which, beleive me, is nothing compared to the potential if I bought and resold them on eBay, for instance.

So there will be a limit to how many parcels I'm willing to go collect and repost because while I'm very glad to give something back to the forum, at some point, it gets tiring reposting stuff.

For now, I can still take a few more if you PM me, but I think I will need to close requests on Thursday rather than Friday, simply because the hassle factor is becoming immense.

Sorry to place a limit, but there it is. I'm still very happy to be able to help so many board members. Hope this limit doesn't annoy anyone too much. If they all arrive over one or two days, I'll take a photo of the mountain of boxes and post it in the thread. It will be quite impressive...

vR - fingers crossed for you!

Holdfast, what you've already agreed to do has been heroic. Thanks again.
