Mac, when did you start wearing EG's? Is nothing sacred? We won't reveal anything to Alden hq.
I'm ready to take my first step (pun not originally intended ) into EG by ordering 2 MTO boots: the Galway and Shannon.
I would like to have one pair with the 888 last but am debating between the 82 and 606 lasts for the other. My dealer does not have all the lasts on display so I'm basing my choices on photos.
Would love to have your thought son which last for which model and do you consider the 606 to be too close to the 888 in terms of shape?
Thank you in advance
Not sure if he has... but he does visit this thread regularly for salutations.
From my understanding the Galways are limited to the 82 and 64 lasts. My Shannons are on the 82; however, I think I've seen them made on the 888... 606 maybe someone else can give input.
came across a vintage EG catalog...
did not realize that EG once did a bit loafer...the Millfield looks quite interesting...
Awesome. What year is it from? I can't really read it.
If you are also open to non-boots, I would definitely recommend the 606 last for Dover on Dark Oak.
It's a classic that will entertain both your feet and your eyes for decades.
Gorgeous. Thanks for sharing and Im really jealous right now
This is great. Thanks for posting
This catalog looks as old as that Hillary bird.
hillary bird. the bird makes it funny.
Does anyone know what color this Aksel shoe is from Ralph Lauren?:
I know RL made this shoe in Dark Oak, but this color appears to be lighter than that. Does anyone have experience with this makeup and know what colors RL made the Aksel in?
DSW described the color as "cognac" or "brandy" by phone. But that could mean Burnt Pine, Hazel, or other possible colors.
Your input is appreciated. Thanks.
P.S. The prices on the few EG models in this sale are attractive. But they are somewhat unusual styles, which are not for everyone.
New family just came in
As you can see they're the odd ones out. 3 other Carmina's on the way. EG is usually out of my budget but the sale from Skoak was perfect!
I think it is Dark Oak. Check out the picture from a seller on Ebay with the same shoe. Possible they make it in different colors, but I doubt it:
