Congrats Namor, very nice, and I hope you got a good deal.
Just a little under $500. There were a couple of scratches that unsettled me but were easily buffed out. The color is also a little darker than the photos from the listing, which I prefer
All in all it sounds like an excellent deal.
I brought my first Edward Green RTW. A pair of 2 tone windsor derby in U tip design.
i find the arch support just as good as my old top drawer.
Please post a picture of the shoes when you get a chance.
I just received a lovely pair of Chelsea in Dark Oak from Edwards of Manchester. However, on the box, it's labelled as "Chelsea.N". Is the additional ".N" meaningful?
the shoes you are wearing are a half size big.
Seems like a great deal indeed, they look to be in great condition.
Thanks guys ill post pics later this weekend. I don't think I've seen this makeup, previously
He may just have a black gay man inside of him
It was my understanding that most English shoemakers use E, F, and G for the width of their shoes and boots. The inside of my EG Galway has been marked as an 11 1/2 D so I figured since I was ordering another Galway in another configuration from someone else I would confirm that this was an actual UK 11 E. The Axel website lists the UK size but not the UK width so I called and spoke with an SA today. He told me my boot was al 11 1/2 D on the EG D Last. I mentioned that it was my understanding that EG used E, F, and maybe G. I asked him if maybe this didn't equate to the UK 11 E. He insisted that they use the EG D Last instead of the UK E Last to keep the boot from being so chunky. He said the D Last is sleeker than the UK E by a good 1/16 of an inch.
^ interesting. Do you find the boot too tight?
The boots fits fine, I'm just a bit confused.
Now that you mention it, my previous Dark oak galway was from axels and I didn't notice the width. If it was "d" width, it didnt feel tight nor was it uncomfortable
It's also possible the SA isn't aware this is actually a UK E. He was pretty confident it wasn't. Anyway, I thought I would post something here and see if anybody had any ideas.
