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!
Those look fabulous. It's too bad the current stock model of the Inverness is on the 82 last. I'm too stubborn to do an MTO just for it, but this is making me green with envy!

Yeah, I'm definitely off to a good week! 😊

I just got too good a deal to pass from another member of the forum. Both new and roughly 2 for the price of 1...

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.
Thanks for sharing. The broguing on the side is an exquisite detail :inlove:

Congrats and these are amazing on the 888 last. I have two pairs on the 888 last (from Brook Brothers) and love them.

I want these. These look amazing.

On a side note, I just saw a YouTube video about taking care of high end shoes and the guy said it's important to keep your shoes in shoe boxes or in a cabinet because "dust dries out leather". How does it dry it out? Does the dust absorb the water and oils? I thought that curious
Thanks! No. Dust doesn't dry leather out. Leather dries out naturally if you leave it unattended for long enough. But, even then, a little bit of brushing and some Saphir Reno and you're back in business. Don't know why people put shoes in shoe bags.
