You believe what you want to believe, I am only listing a couple RTW brands that include shoe trees.



Yeah updated the list, AM Aurum always have shoe trees included, they rarely offer Aurum RTW so it's a bit different.
I am pretty sure there are a lot of other brands that offer "free" shoe trees in the 700 - 1500 price range, Passus, for example.
Sorry, responded too quickly😊. Yeah, I bet quite quite a few Chinese companies do too. It's not 3, that's for sure😀

Yeah and I appreciate you sharing that knowledge. Point of my post was that EG not including shoe trees isn't some strange out of place practice (wasn't trying to list every single shoemaker that includes trees as I don't know and can't be bothered to spend the time researching). I don't think selectively listing brands that do include shoe trees argues against the point any more than selectively listing brands that don't include trees argues for the point. For example, I wouldn't hold EG to the same standards or expectations as AM Aurum for fairly obvious reasons...

Zonkey Boots, Stefano Bemer, Bontoni, Riccardo Bestetti, Corthay, Berluti (?), Anthony Cleverly, AM Aurum, GG Deco, ...
Zonkey doesn’t include trees, unless it’s MTO. You may be referring to a dealer. Given how over priced EG is IMO, they should.

Overpriced, probably... but why am I saw drawn to them?!?🤣
Because they’re beautiful..lol

This...a European friend of mind stated this perfectly. EG has over the years positioned themselves as a luxury item, this means purchases aren’t about reason, in the purchasers mind it’s about spoiling oneself.

I also think EG should include lasted trees with every shoe. It would make me like and respect the brand even more. I mean, if they have to, add the cost to the final price. I just don't want to have to do a lot of work to get trees for such lovely shoes... let it be there already and complete the package and experience of opening up the box. It would take everything to the next level. Just my opinion. I feel like many feel the same. Maybe we should email the company to gently pressure them to do it.

I have owned various wingtip/brogued E.G.'s, a pair of Inverness, Harrogate's and Asquith on the 888 and a pair of Malvern's on the 202. The 202 Malvern is my current favourite E.G. wingtip by far. I have a pair in black on the 202 and I am very fond of them.
The only other E.G. wingtips that I am considering adding to my collection is a pair of Falkirk's on the 202, probably in burnt pine and on the B1 sole.

Here is something that comes close to what I have in mind, a 202 Falkirk in Hazel on HA/F soles.

I have multiple pairs of Malverns in 202 and 88, in dark oak and chestnut antique (for summer). Absolute classics, wearable with almost everything, and the patina only gets better with age.

Hi everyone, I hope you're off to a good week.

Just wanted to share my first EGs, which I bought from another member of the forum. They're on the 888 last, and were made for Brooks Brothers.

Great leather and the last fits me well. I was a bit concerned given my high instep and that it would be too narrow, but they're actually quite comfortable and do not have any gaps or fit too tightly.

Based on what I've read, given where I'm at with the 888, I think the 202 last will be probably a bit wide for me.

I'm adding a few picutures below. Thanks!
