    You're correct about the 7 1/2 denoting the length and 202 the last; F is the width, which is slightly wide as E is standard-width in the UK.
    'S' definitely indicates they are a Sample pair - so in those specifications it's likely only a couple were ever made to see how the style worked. The serial number after that tells you (or rather, the factory) when they were made (month & year) as it's a Batch Number.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I had thought that they were an E width, but of course they are an F. Too bad as I am a USD/UKE.

    I’m wondering if it is a typo or fading etc. should read:

    7 1/2 / 8 (prob not 9. UK size vs US size)

    F202 (F width, 202 last)

    This is one of my favourite photos on this site. The tweed, the boots, their patina, their not-quite-mirror finish, but also the framing and especially the low, oblique winter light...

    I have to agree. The Watchman never disappoints.

    I am looking to purchase a pair of EG shoes and would like some help. What model/color combination(s) would people recommend or are people's favorites?

    There are no requirements for formality as my workplace is rather casual.

    Thanks in advance!

    Easy answer...just check out the post right before yours. :)

    In seriousness, the Galway in dark oak / walnut country calf is an iconic EG model. I'd bet in a forum poll on favorite EGs it would compete for the top spot along with dark oak Dovers.

    Really there are so many great options out there and as mentioned there are few Iconic models such as the Galway (Boot) and the Dover (shoe)? The most important factor is that whatever you decide on that it fits. So really what are you looking for? Boot or shoe. Frankly I would highly recommend you do a bit of looking around here to gain a bit of knowledge and find something that peaks your interest and not ours.

    Thanks very much for the replies and pointers so far.

    I was originally looking for shoes but am very open to trying boots as well, particularly since the Galway and Shannon are both stunning.

    In terms of shoes, so far I've been captivated by the Asquith, Inverness and Walcot. Given my limited experience with EG I was hoping to get some more ideas with the original post. The Dover is growing on me but I think I am not experienced enough to fully appreciate it yet.

    I don’t think it gets any better than a Dover in dark oak. It’s my favorite shoe. I do love my pair of burgundy Inverness but they wouldn’t be my first choice for a more casual office.

    Galways are amazing as well.
