EG Shannon MTO
^ i like the dover in country calf - where is that shoe available?
That specific shoe is MTO on the 202 and mahogany cc. You can buy it on the 606 also with Danite, in walnut CC from the Jermyn St store.
Awesome shoes Jerry.
Loving the Dover, Jerry
dover looks great.
First time poster, long time lurker, I have a question. On ebay I've seen the much celebrated EG Westminster in a colour I belive is called Edwardian Antique, here:
But my EG catalogue states that it comes only in the colours night shade, cloud, black and dark oak. Does anyone know if the colour above is really in production, or if it has been a limited edition sort of thing?
Older model or MTO?
S K M,
I was looking at the same model. It is a legit EG Westminster shoe, probably custom made, you can order any edward green shoes with any color combination you wish. This is not uncommon. However word of warning if are planning on buying this shoe ask seller to send you a picture of the box with description of the product. I am not sure if seller understand EG sizing. The seller has indicated this is wide width shoe, usually in US size E is wide. However EG E width is medium width which translates into American D width see how confusing this gets. So the best bet is to ask seller for the picture of the box where it is written what shoe it is, color of the shoe, sizing and last information.
Nice shoe. Go for it. Welcome to SF.
Had to return the Chelsea. The left shoe upper had what appeared to be a nail imprint. It was noticeable, and just deep enough to make me not want to keep them. This may have resulted from rough handling after leaving the factory. Who knows. Just as troubling - perhaps even more so - was that the captoe stitching on the left shoe was noticeably uneven. This certainly escaped the QC folks at EG. I guess it is further evidence of my previous contention - posted on a different thread - that, if a guy is in the game long enough, he may/will experience QC issues with almost any shoemaker.
The Wells in Dark Oak, on the 82 last, are splendid.
You're right, it could be a custom order. However, I was hoping it was an old model since my size is sold out on ebay, so I was hoping to find another pair somewhere else. Of course I could go MTO but for now that's a bit out of my price range, being a passionate C&J customer. I've also considered ordering a MTO from Ed Et Al, but of course that would not give me a pair of EGs, just a pair of nice double monks (presumably).
I managed to snag the size 7 from morigimilano on ebay and although I am really happy about everything I think the color on that photo is a bit misleading.
Here's a pic I took of them after unboxing them which I think is closer to reality.
