    I saw the 890 in person this week. I thought it was really nice. They really blended classic EG styling with a more contemporary twist

    @Leaves, any chance you guys will include this model again to your EG stock list in the future?

    Not likely I'm afraid. That was a single MTO.

    Is Parisian Brown museum calf exclusive to John Lobb? Or if the Enzo Bonafe would have leather in similar shade?

    I am sick of the double monk in this leather...

    It's exclusive I think. Bonafè has something similar. I think we posted all the MC from Bonafè a while back in this thread if you browse the picture gallery. I don't have access to it right now and we're closed for All Saints Day weekend.

    This boot is a really really great make up.

    There was a rumor that EG does not offer this type of chukka with unlined shaft because customers did not like it. I do not know if this is true, but I like unlined shafts on chukkas.

    @Leaves if you ever consider bringing this chukka as a store item anytime in future do let me know.

    But wait JubeiSpiegel I do not think this pictured is Silverstone. This looks like to be Edward Green Shanklin chukka which to my knowledge is completely unlined chukka.

    I'm still interested in this one. One idea on the sizes coming in?

    Definitely not the Silverstone, it was a pic that came up during my research from the EG thread. Leaves called it the Cherwell, so I'm not sure of its unlined status or availability, but I like it...

    If Edward Green had a database of all of their model things would be much easier.

    I would not call them heavy. I have a pair of Red Wing 9016 Beckman for comparison and they are noticeably heavier.

    It depends what you're comparing them to--heavy is relative and means different things to different people--but in the grand scheme of shoes they are not particularly heavy.
