    I never see these at any online store....are these direct from the shop? I cant believe EG does not have an online operation...but maybe its for the best as that would bankrupt me!

    Very nice, lucky you all wearing EG oxfords, too low instep for my feet = nasty V-opening.
    But I have few derbies instead, my small EG collection so far:

    Nice . Got a pair in 888. Adds a little spunk to a trad black cap.

    5 shoes is a fair collection since I'm sure you have many more from other brands. Sdolina, try Vass U/F? Their instep is much higher, no?

    It appears as you black captoe collection will soon include at least one pair from each of the most popular shoe makers.


    Very nice, Congrats.

    Very nice.

    I especially like the Galway and the brown calf\brown horsehair spectator (BB).

    Yes, I have 24 pairs in total, but only 3 oxfords among the group - Vass in modified F, C&J in 337 and Santoni.

    This is something I should probably start looking at. They don't do in-between sizing on MTO, do they? I assume your left is the next size up.

    Think it takes a while to find what works for you and what doesn't. Certainly, I don't need much in the way of formal shoes as that would just be over-dressing for work which is business casual and even wearing a welted shoe is out of the ordinary. I don't think calf oxfords really work with anything other than suits, so I might admire some of the shoes on here but I wouldn't wear them.

    Some people find that the thought of wearing vintage stuff leaves them cold, and that's fine with me. The good thing about buying vintage is that it's generally relatively inexpensive, so a good way of finding what works for you and what doesn't. Also, most people selling vintage don't know what they're selling so it can be very easy to just flip the stuff that doesn't work for you at a healthy profit, which funds the next couple of pairs.

    I've taken some pics of my whole, now-streamlined, collection tonight and in the absence of anywhere else to post them have hidden them in the spoiler below with an on-topic rehash of some recent Galway porn. Apologies to everyone else for the diversion!

    The Edward Green 'Galway' pic (from left): almond country calf; mink suede, walnut country calf and shearling lining; rosewood country calf (made on 64 F last for Holland & Holland)

    The Tricker's pic (from left): unknown model of navvy boot, possibly 1950s; high-leg brogue boot predecessor to the 'Malton'; MTO 'Eaton', semi-brogue version of the 'Stow'

    The Crockett & Jones pic (left to right, back row first): 'Snowdon' veldtschoen boot; 'Arran' boot in rough-out; 'Coniston'; 'Skye' brogue boot; 'Islay' brogue boot
