    IMG_0159.JPG Too dark and the tint is too brown for burnt pine (burnt pine is very yellow, pic as reference). I would guess an overly conditioned dark oak.

    So hard to tell with batch variations and lighting it could be any of the three. I posted a pic a while back of make ups in doak, burnt pine, and hazel. The differences were noticeable when side by side however on an island its much more difficult to tell.

    I think someone posted a while back. Have EG do it. That'd be the general consensus.

    Even in store there is a marked variation in tone for the Dark Oaks on display , and for that matter the ones that come out to be tried on. I had to try on quite a few Berkleys and made a few trips to the store before I settled on the one I got. Even this one was much darker and dull on purchase, but after a couple coats of wax the dark dull layer on top was removed and a nice bright shoe revealed.

    Burnt Pine Antique is great if you are lucky to get the right batch. Otherwise you will end with bandage coloured shoes you will hate.

    Would a belgravia have more instep space than a piccadilly on the 184 last in a D width? Is the vamp location the same? Does anyone size up length or width on E.G. Loafers?

    Kinda true of a few other colors as well. I have seen burgundy that looks pink. Batch variation certainly matter but I suppose that's the chance we all take. I ordered a thorpe boot from the skoak mto a while back and the boot was noticeably different upon arrival. Not much skoak could do....it happens.

    not sure if this has been discussed, what is the general consensus on eg shoetrees? are they really worth it considering i may buy them for a 606 last shoe.....i was told the eg shoetrees are based on the 202/606 last??

    Here's a little something I found from Italy: unworn Edward Green Malvern brogues. Judging by the different finish, these were likely made in the 1990s, if not before. 202-last and burgundy calfskin uppers.

    I was veritably shocked to feel that the last fits much closer than the version in use today. The factory must have added girth all around to accommodate all kinds of feet. The finishing has been improved since, but the fit watered down. Looks above comfort -- such a shame.
