    Sorry I'm sure this has been asked a billion times ITT but a little help would be much appreciated - I wear a 10 in CJ an a 10.5 in GG although they're both kind of snug. 10.5 in Carmina is a touch loose. What size EG?

    Probably a 10.
    You are in DC right? Get into Sky Valet and test a few pair out...

    I wear a half size up from C&J in EG's 82, 888, & 33 (C&J 6E = EG 6.5E). The EG lasts fit me excellently though which has caused more pain in my wallet.

    Thanks gents. I'm thinking of getting a Dover, 606 last. Suggestions for a leather? I was thinking a mid brown plain calf. I have the GG split toe blucher in dark oak peccary and will also get one in mid brown hatch grain.

    I'm also a half size up from C&J. So 8 in CJ, and 8.5 in all EG lasts, though the 888 fits a bit tight. Also, I'd say no to acorn. Too band-aid-ish. I think if you want to go that light, Edwardian might be better, though online pics are quite terrible. There are too many variations all over the place to get a good sense of how yours will turn out.

    If you're interested in doing EG MTOs in the future, I can send you swatches. It's too late for this sale, but just future FYI. May help figure out what color/ material you want. I have the four main calf colors (Edwardian, burnt pine, dark oak, and chestnut), and all their suedes plus burgundy calf are on their way to me.

    Ah, nm. I was thinking of Maple. No experience with acorn, but here's aportnoy's color chart. It looks more orange-y here? FWIW, this color chart doesn't really reflect the swatches I have, so maybe the color calibration is a little off.

    Yea maple looks like kind of a disaster. I've never like shoes that light..."whiskey" cordovan doesn't do it for me either. Is your Edwardian like this?

    That looks like the kind of thing that starts out just to light and you could polish into something richer over time.

    Hi, I'm cross posting from the Edwards of Manchester sale thread since I realized this one is more appropriate (mods pls delete if I made a mistake).

    I'm looking to get my first pair of EGs, but am having trouble deciding on some options, and am wondering if and fellow SFers can chime in.

    1) Galway or Alderley? I already have 2 pairs of rugged/casual captoe boots, but no brogues or wingtips. There's not much info on the Alderleys, but here's a photo:

    2) Upper/lower leathers: a) chocolate nubuck/burnt pine, or b) rosewood country/antique nightshade calf? I'm looking to have something that can show off EG's burnishing the best and be versatile at the same time. Saw the nightshade color posted before here:
    [​IMG]
    and according to Leffot's it's something like dark purple, burgundy. I have a lot of #8 cordovans and this looks to be different enough.

    3) I'm size 8.5 on Alden Barrie last. Would it be right to get 888 lasted in size 8E?

    Thanks in advance for your help!
