    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    My two cents: 82-E = last 82 E fitting, RNDTOE = round toe, EMBAUCHOIR BOIS = wooden shoe trees; F = F fitting, T:7 = size: 7

    Don't know why the boots are "E" fitting but the trees are "F" fitting though.

    Yes, different combinations of the leather colours would look very nice, but I had always intended this for work, so had to go black / black
    lol, for the record, this was on the ground waiting for pax to board :)
    Not sure about the trees either. One of them is very stiff getting in - not because the boot is a different size, but the metal prong things don't easily retract inside when pushing them in.
    Thank you!

    I would also like to thank the main posters here - it's this thread that convinced me to go with EG's in the first place and I don't regret it one bit. Sadly these forums have led me to the leather jackets and watch thread... [​IMG]

    Yes. I placed an order for a pair in early February at the London EG store. I was charged £1,250 including VAT although, since I was quoted up to 10 months for delivery, I've only paid 50% of that so far.

    UK VAT (Value Added Tax, i.e. sales tax) is 20% so the price excluding tax would have been £1,041.67 for my order. That's with no added extras such as metal toe pieces and was for a regular shoe rather than a boot.

    I just received my shoes. I don't really recognize all of the markings, however there is a 89 in the shoe. So I would think this would indicate the 89 Last which would mean these would be Edward Greens.

    I'll have to work on that.

    I'll plan on posting some pictures in the next day or so.

    Anyone ever cancel a MTO with EG?

    I made a order today but I've changed my mind. Already paid 50%.

    What did you order and in what size? Maybe someone on SF will take over your order. However do not expect to get your 50% back.

    I am not sure if you can get you money back, but you can probably have the order changed to something else as long as the factory has not cut the uppers yet. I have personally had an order changed after 4 weeks of ordering an MTO at E.G.

    Yeah, I think i'll just change it.

    Is it possible to have a slip-on like the Buckingham in like a 888 or would that look strange?. I made a order for Plimico loafers in the 100 last; but thinking back I was having some heel slippage on 11.5UK and it was too tight in a 11UK.

    I'm a 11.5 in 888 D and E82 and they both fit very well.

    It is easy to change the requested last. I have done this a week after placing my order. Do not hesitate to speak up. If you put the order in yesterday (or recently) they have not begun working on them yet.

    My new Dovers on order: 888 last, dark oak antique. Should I get (visible) metal eyelets?
