How much do they want for those ugly things?  And how many models do they stock in the small sizes, Andrew?  Not that I'm interested...
Matt-- I just noticed your revised self-help sig --hilarious.. One day at a time, eh? ("I can stop buying shoes any time I want...I just choose not to.")

This forum is so randomly useful, especially when it comes to shoes. Thank you. EG had the Exeter on the sale list in my size. I was able to find the other obscure shoes they have in stock (Gladstone and Southwold) on two of the Japanese shoe fan sites, but not the Exeter. And here we have photos of not one but two versions. Fortunately I just received my Green bespoke version of what the Exeter turns out to be (what Cleverley calls a veldt and a signature shoe for Berluti). But I have ordered those sale Gladstones...

Will-- Excellent. Do your bespoke "Exeters" have that short wing cap as in version two (if not, was it presented as an option)?

The Gladstone is a great shoe. They were my first Edward Green purchase and are still going strong, in fact, they still look new... You'll like them I think.

The shoes are plain toe, and the deal is done. Btw, I came across a photo on Jun's site of what I assume is the same shoe w/ wing cap. He lists them as Poulson & Skone, presumably made for them by Green. http://members.jcom.home.ne.jp/shoe.com/DSC01153.JPG

And someone's selling a very similar pair of Poulsen Skones (as women's shoes, but I dunno) on ebay right now.

AJL, My bespoke three tie bluchers are black and plain toe. For wear with light-weight suits in summer. The scale of the shoe is perfect for seersucker and silk. . Will

Just bought what are almost certainly Edward Green-made new Poulsen Skone deadstock suede Exeters from someone on ebay for less than $200. Ah, joy. Pretty sure they're not women's shoes either as the seller thought (although for a moment a very pejorative line from "Raisin in the Sun" flitted through my head) -- never heard of N&L or P&S selling women's RTW shoes. They're basically the same as Jun Kuwana's, only in brown suede: http://cobblers.hp.infoseek.co.jp/monthly01-07.htm Our Japanese friends also have this Poulsen Skone, which looks like mine minus the toecap: http://www.alles.or.jp/~musijiro/new.lingwood.html I wonder if it was a particular style Poulsen Skone was known for?

Yes, I saw those shoes, after you first made mention. I would concur with you vis a vis men's vs. women's based on the measurements alone. The seller is apparently not well versed in women's shoe sizing. Congrats.
