    ^ Some cobbler in DC is famed for doing sunken metal toe plates at a reasonable price, but the name of the establishment escapes me.

    In any case, B. Nelson will do this as well. Testimonials here.

    EDIT: I believe the DC place I'm thinking of is either Sky Valet or a place recommended by Sky Valet. Regardless, B. Nelson is well thought of, and at $30-$35, reasonably priced.

    Taking Jerrybrowne's lead I wanted to share my collection. Loved his Dover's in suede. As I said earlier - probably my next MTO. I am happy to hear any ones thoughts on where my collection should go next. I have on order a pair of Cadogan's in mink suede and Ullswater in Mahogany country calf. I do all of my MTO's through Leffot - highly recommended. Thanks guys and enjoy.

    Windsors are older than me and yet they appear to have be holding up better than I am. That's more a testament to the quality of EGs than my self-destructive tendencies

    Crup is another word for shell cordovan? I have only see EG describe it that way

    Yep, the English (and some other Europeans) call shell crup. Not sure why....

    A "crupper" is a piece of leather that is attached to the horse and looped under the tail. My guess is the proximity of the "crupper" to location where shell is found is likely how it got its name. Just a guess from someone who was raised in horse country.

    8/8.5D is my normal size. A couple pairs are in E width. They are well-guarded. :fence: Thanks everyone for the kind words.

    Leather Soul claims that EG E width is equivalent to a US D, however, I know other US EG retailers order their EG shoes in D width. I think their D width is closer to the "normal" American width. What are other people's thoughts and experiences on this? I know D fits me better, but E still works.

    Additionally, I've heard EG is really busy lately and MTO times are up to 8-9 months right now.

    My experience is the EG "E" is and American "D"

    I posted these in the shoe damage thread. I picked them up from Leffot and love them.
