oops, burnishing. don't get behind. nvm.
RLPL Braylon from EG - 888 last:
old vs new, yearling vs calf, normal shot vs. good photography.
These are probably the nicest derbies I have seen. What are the details for this pair?
Thank you. Edward Green Wells-Dark Oak Antique.
Hi all, A while back I made an offer regarding some EG's that were being discounted in my City. No new requests for proxy please; for those who have already contacted me, you have till end of Saturday to decide, after I won't have time to proxy. Thanks.
Since I no longer have my Moores is Oxblood does anyone think the Antique Burgundy offered by EG would make a good replacement?
Can someone elaborate how the widths in EG go? I have 0 experience in EG and I'm trying to figure out if they have widths equal to US B, US C and UK D. So quite narrow is what I'm looking for...
EG widths are generally available in what they call D and E and on rare occasion you'll find someone that stocks either C (really narrow) or F width (pretty wide). They do not do any width converting for shoes sold outside the UK. In other words, an Edward Green E width shoe sold in London is the same as an E width sold in New York. E width seems to be Edward Green's standard width. Fit will depend on the last you choose also.
This is sexy.
^^ok, thanks. Sounds like I need to either go with paying for trials and errors or just wait for the near impossibility of someone of my size happening to have a pair of EGs.
Are they on the 724? Nice last. EGs antique burgundy is a little darker than the AS oxblood but it would indeed be a good replacement. Personally my favourite version of this colour would be the GGs Vintage Rioja, it's got so much depth to it (although it is very dark)
Edit: Checked the Bespoke England MTO for GG, perhaps their Rosewood Calf is more similar to the AS Oxblood
