So how did you get them to acquire the Zug?

Zug has been possible for a while from EG. I looked into Zug Galways last year and am thinking about it again for next year. They just source the leather from Horween. The really interesting part is multiple Zug colors. I thought it was only in oxblood.

You order direct or through a dealer?

Unfortunately, the goal is to find my sizing before committing to a non-returnable pair. I find 606 to be a bit less forgiving in the toe than 202 and will likely stick with e width but add a full sock liner.

On another note, does anyone size down for 184? I have no experience with the last and curious if its made to accommodate a loafer fit in tts.
No. I take same size in 184 as 82 & 888

Does anyone have any information on the below pair of EG shortwing collab with Leffot - I can't seem to find much detail on EG doing whiskey shell cordovan at all. Would these be Horween?

If a client has leather he wants to use, EG will often use it. So Leffot could have worked out a deal that wasn't from their normal swatch book.

Leffot often do small pre-order runs in collaboration with EG; Alden and a couple of others. Probably how this came about.
Whisky shell is available in the Duke [loafer] at some retailers, that I have seen.
