It was suggested to me that the numbering was the date. I guess not...
I'm just hoping they clean up pretty well. I don't think I'll ever have a nicer feeling pair of shoes.
Both are available to me on the 82 last, that is why I was on the fence about the stylistic details. Thanks for your thoughts Geezer.
Here is my pair of the Berkeley in dark oak on the 202 if it helps at all
I have the midfords in black on the 82 last and they are majestic
I vote for the latter which is more traditional to me; however, I do prefer the Inverness over the Malvern
I have a hard time keeping straight which is the true raised brogue vs. the punched, one piece but I always prefer the former.
I think Geezer is pretty spot on here. The waist is in pretty nice condition on the sole. And EG probably hasn't used the exact same Nail pattern on the heel for that long.
I have heard it said that all of EGs lasts derive from the 202. But perhaps what is meant that the newer lasts derive from the 202. I've seen shoes from the 1980s on the 202. But it seems the 201 was very popular before the 202. I have seen EGs for Wildmith and Nordstrom on the 201. So I'm still not sure when the 202 rose to prominence.
Also, you can always send that 5 digit number to EG - they can give you the original order info.
Thanks, I'll try that. I'm just curious now...
Also, nice pick up!
Actually, I would say saphyr's neutral is best to maintain any color/patina/burnishing. With chestnut antique, the medium brown seems to darken it just a bit. Dark brown would probably also do it faster.
My Friday boots for work!

Beautiful, I want one of these is it from the current collection or MTO ?
Many thanks, Farhad. The pair is from EG's current collection, their latest brochure is available on Issuu's website.
