cravats were all the rage turn of the 20th century. some of us have to keep traditions alive, tif
I guess I always thought of the asquith kind of like the AE strand in that it is a more casual oxford that defies traditional sartorial guidelines.
i love the asquith on 888. easily my favorite captoe balmoral of all time. Would love to have a rainbow of this makeup ala nickyboy's chelsea
I noticed this listed on some of BB's online EG' offerings: Edward Green Shoes are displayed in UK sizes. Please select 1 size down from your normal size if you wear US Men's size 9, please choose Men's size 8 UK E width is equivalent to a US D width.
This has never been the case. Good grief ........
They are shown in US length, and UK width. So if you wear a US9D, online you would select 9E. It will arrive at your house reading 8.5/9 E.
A few things:
EG's 888 last is a different animal compared to AE's 5 last. Much more sleek and refined.
It can be worn more casual than with a suit, but I find it perfectly appropriate with a suit.
The lighter the color, the more casual it becomes.
I remember when Ryden ordered his Galways from BB...I believe he even called and spoke to someone to confirm and they still sent him the wrong size.
I was assured the 8 was an 8UK and it came 7.5/8
That ain't cool.
To make it even more confusing BB marks them as 8E. So US length and UK width...LOL
Kind of like LA face with an Oakland booty
I looked at an old EG catalog this evening and noticed the Buxton (unlined split toe loafer) was featured in Brandy Willow Calf. Additional food for thought, if anyone is still undecided about what to do with their potential makeup. What do you guys think will look best with the dark oak/ brown Willow calf? Cheers.
I really, really like the Buxton. I stare at this makeup far more than I should.
I like that makeup of the Buxton as well. But I am still not completely sold on split toe loafers, especially at those LS prices.
It's a nice looking shoe. I wish the vamp was a tad longer and the instep lower though.
