    Personally would have liked a higher vamp but this is a unique looking style from EG (at least I haven't seen one like this recently from them).

    I just ordered these from Ralph Lauren.

    They were on sale for about 30% off..

    I picked a similar pair up some time ago during one of RL's seasonal sales - I'm pretty sure they were under $500 at the time. Seems like EG prices have just gone up since then: [​IMG] [​IMG] Also picked these up as well around the same time, IIRC: [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Nice! I have a pair of captoes on the 33 and I do like their classic shape. Time for the summer suits! Playing around with the colors with my Shannons: [​IMG]

    Nice! The metal eyelets are a nice touch.

    That color is pretty unique.

    One thing I've noticed about these Cole Haan EGs - the captoe slightly angles from the outside of the shoe toward the inside. Nothing as drastic as G&G's inverted captoe, but there's an ever so slight tilt to the cap that you don't see normally. With the first pair, I thought perhaps it was just a slight defect, but every pair has it. I thought it might be unique to the original 33 last. Your pair doesn't seem to have it but its hard to tell from the sides.

    Anybody have any idea where I might be able to buy a pair of Edward Green lasted shoe trees? I'm picking up a pair of Hutton Burnished Wingtips from Ralph Lauren and it appears they no longer come with shoe trees.


    I think these might be on the 89 Last.

    eBay had trees all the time and the nicer old school ones that actually fill out the vamp.

    Thanks, but that's actually the first place I checked. Unfortunately there were very few listed at the time, and none of them in the last or size I need.
