    A-H of course? the upper construction is almost identidcal with the Demeter-Halmos on previous page, including the back-strap and the kissing toe seam. Must be a tradition?




    amazing, yes Harrydog, but quite some time ago. 4.5 yrs! that is a serious shoe-memory, esp for someone who is no EG fan. Bought at a factory sale in 2008

    A traditionally handmade ‘split-reverse’ (‘stormwelt’ in English) looks something like this:

    [​IMG]

    The leather strip is partially split; the lower section is stitched underneath while the upper section forms a lip
    against the shoe. Unlike the Goiserer/Bentivegna, you won’t see any additional stitching on the outside of the shoe:

    Guyla Kiss, one of the greatest I have ever met. certainly, I'm biased, though. I've seen the work frome some of the best in the world in flesh, so I allow myself this judgement. the back strap is tradition and I love it. not sure what you mean by the kissing toe seam?


    it's the arrangement of the pic and the quality of the pic. ap never had the depth and never pictured boxes.

    not a fan, oh well. i'm happy, when you guys are happy. never forget, we, who write and participate here in a disiplined manner have one in common - we love shoes and not solely ours collection.

    I mean the way the lips of the leather at the split on the toe are pinched, sewn, then trimmed - as opposed to ghosted the EG way or an overlap seam as seen on the 'lake' of the Demeter-Halmos.

    Make it simpler: in the Kiss sample the leather is folded to the outside, in EG (or JM Weston) the leather id folded to the inside.
    So in one you can see the inlay, while in the other you cannot.

    Hello,
    I have three questions concerning EG, which I hope can be answered.

    1. Is "Dark Oak" and "Dark Oak Antique" the same color? I'm confused by this and by looking at pictures, which states different names of colors (antique and not antique) but seems to look the same in color.
    2. I wear C&J UK7.5 E width (348 last), Vass UK7.5 normal width (U- and F-lasts) and G&G UK8 E width. What should my EG size be for the 888 last?
    3. Could someone explain the "Dark Oak Antique" color compared to C&J's "Dark Brown" (Hallam), Vass "Dark Brown" and/or G&G's "Dark Oak"?

    Thanks in advance.

    1. The base color is dark oak. You can order it without antiquing which is the applied patina look that EG is known for.
    2. I was advised to get a 1/2 size larger than usual, but it's bit long for me. I would probably stick with usual size. If your feet are on the wider size, just get a width bigger.
    3. EG's dark oak is pretty comparable to the G&G color. My Vass dark brown was a bit darker in color. I prefer the EG color.
    4. Buy my EG's on the B/S forum.

    Where can I purchase the Telford or Asquith in 9.5/10E?

    Anyone have a website that carries this? Or a retailer in the US or one that ships to the US?

    Thanks

    Try calling EG Jermyn street or Edwards of Manchester in the UK. Not many retailers in the US keep regular stock but you can try Leather Soul, Leffot, or Axel's.

    The jokers at BB are only carrying Greens in E widths. Must be the C&J Peal influence. Bastards.

    Yes, the RLPL Carter has 3 eyelets, as opposed to 5 on the Dover. Here are the pair I have:

    Also there is no heel counter. Pretty sure these are equivalent to EG ectons.
