I was over at the Rhinelander Mansion yesterday placing my order for a few MTM suits and took a look at the Edward Greens they had. I have never been overwhelmed by the choices RLPL makes with EG, but I was pleasantly suprised. First of all, on a round table, there were at least 15 models, as part of the RLPL MTM EG shoe program. I dont know if those models are available unless you want to special order them. Great selection though - boots, elastic sided shoes, oxfords, loafers. However, on the wall rack, were the new spring models for sale. 2 models in particular caught my eye, both spectators. One pair brown and white, the other black and white. Picturing the shoes in my head this morning, I am pretty sure they were the Cardiff model, only turned into spectators. What I loved most about them was the white sections of the shoes were suede (I think there is a proper term for white or cream suede, but it escapes me at the moment). 99% of specs these days have white calfskin, but the effect of the suede with the antiqued brown (looked like Edwardian Antique to me), was stunning. Retail $850.
