    Too bad this according to SF, but the Gucci horsebit loafer deserves to be mentioned......I love wearing mine.

    Have country boots replaced Balmoral boots in iGent affections?

    A few years ago you could guarantee a few Balmorals even the occasional Full Victorian with top hat and tails.

    Those are all EGs. So, yes the Dover and the austerity brogue is the Bealieu.

    The monk is the RLPL Grant

    man, that's old school. There was a time on here where you couldn't post if you had not yet bought a pair of Weymouth from Plal.

    I commented on the bulkiness of this very picture in another thread and was told the heft was actually the endearing trait of the shoe. Different strokes....

    If you want to go really old school, there was Ralph's version of the EG Cardiff that Bluefly sold many years ago. That started my EG addiction.

    EG Shannon and Galway boots. You hardly ever see them in the wild, but they get lots of coverage here.

    And some kind of OCBD stitch-cap like the EG Chelsea features, if not by brand/model name, in every generic "what shoes should I buy to go with my suit?" thread.

    Gucci bit loafer

    Love it or hate it, there's no doubt that it is iconic.

    Alden Cordovan Long Wing Blucher - the "one shoe", and in cordovan
    Allen Edmond Park Avenue - probably the #1 most recommended shoes
    Allen Edmond Strand in Walnut - probably the #2 most recommended shoes
    Edward Green Dover - the Norwegian split toe
    Edward Green Galway - the country boots
    Edward Green Shannon - the balmoral boots
    John Lobb William - the double monk
    John Lobb Phillips II - the ultimate dress shoes
    Gaziano & Girling St James II - what made G&G G&G
    Crockett & Jones Belgrave - the Plal bang-for-the-buck shoes that's the ticket to shoe discussions before Carmina

    RLPL Grant on the 888 ... the shoe that started it all for me. Now I have most of the shoes mentioned here.

    Speaking of Polo shoes, remember the run on the Grapevinehill Tellman's? Not really iconic but still
