    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Yes indeed, it's on the 888. Didn't see it when we were last there in March, though we did spot Ahnuld :smarmy:

    Would much prefer a single strap in a boot configuration. Olney? Single strap to me is cleaner in appearance yet still has a certain uniqueness to it over other non-strap boots. But then I generally prefer single monks over double. If pressed, I'd choose the Lobb William monk boot over this example.

    The courage exhibited on this thread this evening is inspirational.

    Could the citizens of London have been any more admirable in their resolve during WWII?

    I think not.

    If a gun was involved I'd take the bullet. Having to choose a double strap over a single would kill me anyway. That plus never being able to weather the comments on SF telling me how I erred on my choice :)

    I still haven't recovered from my Cleverley's being call Eastern Europeanesque or something to that effect. :)

    I've managed to get some stains on my EG Malvern spectators, no idea what caused them. How does one go about cleaning canvas, or should I forget the idea and call the stains patina?

    Depends on the severity. But you are right, patina is stain.

    This is exactly why I'd never get a pair of shoes with canvas. A good cleaning solution should do the trick, but I'd just be worried about smudges each time I polish the calf bits.

    I don't have canvas spectators, but for white canvas plimsolls, I spray them with a 50/50 mix of water and lemon juice and gently scrubbed them for a bit with a stiff toothbrush. Once they're dry, they're a bit brighter. For tougher stains, I mix a tablespoon of baking soda with a touch of water and rub the sticky paste onto the stain (again, with a toothbrush). Let the paste sit for a bit, then brush it off, and usually a bit more of the stain will go away.

    I'm hesitant to really recommend this with your Malverns, however. It might be good to try it out on a cheap pair of white plimsolls, or some canvas shoe you don't care about, and see how they fare. After that, try it on an inconspicuous place on the Malverns. I do it without hesitation to my canvas shoes because they only cost something like $50.

    My wife uses the baking powder mixture for coffee stains on carpet and it works quite well. Not sure how that translates to shoes though.

    Thanks for the tips, gents. I can live with the stains, though. Not too large or colourful to mess this great makeup. The last 202 does have a surprisingly strong heel shape.

    Just back from Barcelona.

    The price is 700 and something (730 for the model I looked at; obviously, exact price depends on the model) euros.

    The shoes are stampled with "Edward Green for Bel y Cia" -- I guess some models are availale only there. And yes, they are in F width, as opposed to standard E.

    Cross post:

    My shoe size is US 10.5 EE, and tried an EG Inverness UK 10.5 E, it was extremely tight. I don't think the UK 11E will work, the tightness and lacing gap would indicate as much. The best guess would be to go for a UK 11.5 E, and that would be unacceptable for me length wise. I am thinking an UK 11 F would fit the bill, so i might have to end up ordering this from Nick A.

    On a side note, the brilliant antique burgundy in all the pics i have seen did not translate in the pair i saw. It was more brown that anything, anyone else experience this?

    Lastly, how does the 202 last compare to the 888 last? does it feel like an F width in comparison? Thanks, for the help.
