    Actually seen these from AP's previous posts. Seems to have variations between acorn and maple. Anyone have in vivo pics of these shoes?

    I had an OLD Hugo Boss (yes, they collaborated with good manufacturers in the past) pair of blucher Austerity wingtips in a color close to EG's maple. The leather started off relatively light but man, after a few months they developed a nice patina the shoes looked great! Too bad couldn't make the last trunk show at Leffot to see the leathers in person...

    I wrote to customer service on the EG site and my question was forwarded to, and answered by, Hilary himself.

    I think it's Falkirk but I am not 100% sure those are Aportnoy's shoes

    I'm going to date myself here and guess that those are the Asprey wingtips - I believe the medallion was a cursive letter "A" (this might be wishful thinking on my part), and the shoes were in acorn with a light/natural welt and double sole. If I again recall correctly, Aportnoy actually kicked off that feeding frenzy back in the day - Asprey still had a shop on 5th Avenue back then and put the EGs on sale for something crazy like $349 or $399. Someone can probably run a search on the shoe damage thread to confirm, but you can see some pretty good pics of the shoes here:

    And here is the acorn leather after 25 years and a refurbishing by Edward Green:

    You are right - those are the brogued, wing-tipped Adelaide shoes EG did make for Asprey, at around 2004. They also produced that same design in a dark brown suede.

    The medallion is a funny one, from the wearer's viewpoint it's an elaborate letter 'A'; from the onlooker's viewpoint it is a rather overweight bumble bee. I do have the boots (also in acorn), from the same collection made for Asprey, which sport that same medallion.

    I have a pair of galways coming soon. I am not sure why but I have been drooling over the tan cliffords, that would be my pick.

    ^ cant go wrong with that? The walnut country calf/dark oak might be the most perfect stock combination for the Galway. What a full sock liner? Does it extend to the ankle?

    The full sock liner runs from the heal to the toe. My other egs fit great but I was advised the 82 ran a little long compared to the 202. When I tried a pair of 82 lasted galways the toe box had a little more room in the toe box than I would like, my sa recommended the full liner to eat up some of the room. I emailed eg directly and they confirmed the full liner would remedy the problem.
