    EG "Malvern" in chestnut on the 202 last, I think. Last possibly a bit squared off.

    "Malvern" is a full -brogue (wing tip). The shoe featured is a half-brogue (cap toe), which is EG's stile "Cadogan".

    Definitely EG Chestnut. Possibly the 606 last, but since it's older it might be a more obscure last like the 808.

    808 which was created for previous 'top-drawer' range, is quite long and sharp (a lengthened 88).
    The last in question might well be 32 or 33 (which is by modern standards quite small and shallow):

    Innocently strolling the West Village and stopped into Leffot...and then the damage:
    The details and finish of the G&G is just breathtaking...however (as discussed here) the new top shelf Sargent line was there as well... and was just exquisite...possibly a step forther than the G&G's in terms of out and out detail and jewel like quality.
    The monks are an EG (discontinued OTR item) for Polo -

    Negative - they were'nt even for sale there, just samples....I seem to vaguely recall Steven saying similar to G&G ($1,200-ish) Though like EG, they will offer a MTM program for $150 upcharge.

    See post #20 in this thread. Lasted trees ~100 pounds more. Don't know about other sellers other than eventually on Alfred Sargent's own website.

    You should contact Chay Cooper (Alfred Sargent on this forum) about a pair or three and take advantage of the introductory pricing. 400-450 pounds less VAT right now so at today's rate would be $495- $556 excluding trees which should be about $124.

    Sorry, but these are pretty ugly/clunky shoes.

    No need to be sorry, because I'm very happy with those shoe[​IMG]

    Got it. Chestnut Cadogan on the 33 last.

    Do you find they run small? I found a Dover made for Paul Stuart a few years back in my nominal size in the 33 last but it was just too small and I ended up selling it.

    My contribution. Not Styleforum-sleek, but sleek enough for me.

    IDK what you're talking about... but those Vass single monks are schweet!

    There is no such thing as "Styleforum-sleek"; the ideas here about what counts as "sleek", and even whether "sleek" is a good thing, are very varied.
