    getting a little overwhelmed on the pm's, a good thing I guess but I'm not a shoe expert so please bear with me. The store does not stock anything other than D sizes so please let me know what you would like in that size. Also, I don't think they have any boots. I will respond to PM's asap.

    From what I can see in the pictures on ebay, it looks like they replaced the insole as well. Is this correct?

    If so, one has to wonder, why not just make a brand new pair of shoes?

    edit: Actually I've figured it out - to replace the heel counter the shoe would have to be relasted, and I don't think this is possible with gemmed shoes. Hence, a new insole was needed. Again, seems like a waste to me when you could just build a whole new pair of shoes with the same effort.

    These are the suspects! Thanks, the leather really took the cream polish well (combination of Meltonian charcoal grey and black) just to add some depth. When I'm ready to replenish I will try Tarrago. I appreciate the tip.

    Sorry guys, but I'm new to Edward Green. Where can I find updated info on lasts? I'm usually 8.5US - 9US and need to match up to appropriate last. Any help is appreciated!

    I recommend searching earlier threads discussing lasts but you can also contact the store and request a catalog where they describe last shapes.

    Regarding fit, I would guess 8/8.5 or 8.5/9 [add last/fit variability caveat here].

    Thanks again for the offer, unfortunately, the D width is too tight (I wear E). Hope others will take advantage of your kindness. Thought I mention it here than add another PMs for you to read. :)

    Very nice, but way beyond what I would ever be willing to spend on a pair of shoes. Do they fit you?

    I just got a nice package in the mail today - finally scored a pair of EG Halifax/RLPL Brendon in dark oak on the 89 last.

    I thought my Lobb Tudor boots in parisian brown museum calf were the most aesthetically pleasing boot I'd ever wear but now I don't know . . .

    Haven't gotten to the EG boots just yet, but here's the Tudor boot (apologies in advance - I realize this is EG appreciation):

    It's a Chelsea boot-not much too beat as far as look and style is concerned.

    As far as the leathers go, Parisian Brown museum calf is really something, but the burnishing on EG's dark oak at the toe box and back quarters - it really is exquisite.

    But you're right - as far as styles go, there's no contest.

    Just an Aussie blowing off but none of these "chelsea boots" from these flash companies can hold a candle to you basic RM Williams boots. They all lack that certain mojo that you get in the Aussie version.

    IMHO of course.
