Any reason for the preference?
Great color; looks very close to Edwardian to me.
Thanks for confirming the width. D definitely will take a break to work for me. At a point where I'm stick to the exact last/size that works and avoid rationalizing (size up/down length/width)... I have had fewer buyer's remorse or loss from having to flip due to fit.
Wear in good health!
It seems to be 202 with a square touch.
It will always say D in RL's make up, doesn't mean it's English D which would be narrow fit. I am under the impression if RL label it 10D on the box then it's 9.5E UK, and says 9.5/10 on the shoe (without saying D or E on the shoe)
There has been a lot of discussion about this here in the past.
Most RL/EG's are marked D inside the shoe. However, I've owned RL/EG's that were marked E width inside the shoe. (Possibly from the UK market)
I think I might just have to cancel my vacation and drive into the city tomorrow and pick these up; a personal pair of MTOs that just came in. Edward Green "Cottesbrook" in Nightshade calf, 82 last (F-fitting)
Break in your new shoes as you walk around town. Nothing's says hello like walking into JL with a fresh pair of EG
Pretty sure that's for UK market, at least that's what I saw in London's RL shop
i would 2nd the 606 sentiment. I think the nst works well on the 606
Definitely discussed in the past. My experience with the Mansion is that the D they have in EG (and also in G&G) are UK D; I have worn my EGs in E and tried on EG for RL marked D and they are noticeably narrower.
Once in a while they do have EG/RL in E though at the Mansion, but it might have been random stock.
Yeah I tried on about 5 pairs of RL EGs all too narrow for me
Very, very nice. You should do "F" fittings for your shop.
Some of our recent MTOs for Edward Green
wow, glad to see someone make something unique with their mto
