    Nice, I like adelaides and have yet to purchase one. Rarely see EG's versions.

    On another note, does anyone know how EG burgundy compares to GG colors? It looks as light as vintage cherry in some pictures but I thought the counterpart for EG was bauxite. Also doesn't look as dark as vintage rioja.

    I run a pretty tight ship as far as clothes are concerned. That is one area that I can usually restrain myself.

    Actually I'm referring to shoes in this case.

    EG burgundy is unique color. I have vintage cherry and that is pretty much the same as EG bauxite,
    Vintage Rioja is very dark, just like Saphir Bordeaux polish.
    EG burgundy is lighter than Vintage Rioja and little bit darker than Cherry and Bauxite.
    EG burgundy is one of the most bueatiful colors out there.

    Any thoughts on the EG Mercer in mocha suede? I would wear it a lot, and pair it with everything from jeans to navy suits. My only hesitation is that I could get a very similar shoe from Carmina or Vass for (considerably to a little) cheaper.

    I think it then all comes down to which style you like the most and what your willing to pay for. But from the limited amount of suede I own from Alden and C&J (Pearl and CO for Brooks Brothers) I know the suede Edward Green is definitely a step up from those.

    Don't freak we're not talking Galways. LOL



    Mostly stuff I bought when I just started buying nicer shoes. Shoes I don't like as much now as I did then, and shoes I don't wear amyways.

    Funny - I left out the color in my post on purpose. They are actually Burnt Pine. I mentioned in a post a week or so ago that they came out very close to DOAK - maybe even the same shade as the lightest pair of DOAK I have. I love the shade. I do like the variation/uniqueness you get with each shoe - it really is a surprise each time you open an EG box. It seems to me that over the last year DOAK and other browns have gotten all a little darker. Maybe a result of the switch in calf manufacturers.

    Yes, with the 82 last and strap design, that's pretty much a perfect suede single monk. If the narrow 82 works, and you're going to get a lot of use...go for it.

    I do have a Carmina suede shoe (from a few years ago) and the quality was very good. Vass would be great, but I think the EG design looks better for your needs.

    Although my Chelsea left after your zugs they seem to be taking a bit longer as well. Maybe they've decided to send things by rowboat now..
