    They named a shoe after Telford?! They must have hit a mental block on that particular day...

    Quote: Precisely my point! The old industrial towns and cities of the Midlands aren't usual fodder for the shoe-naming committees of Northampton!

    It's normally wispy little South Coast/West Country/south-eastern towns and villages for shoes and Borders/Lake District/North Scotland towns for country footwear (Irish places, for EG, of course). Like a bloody tourist trail...

    Of course, Cheaney have done a Birmingham already, as I'm sure you know, although it would be a cold day in hell before I wore that model anywhere...

    I think most of the foreign buyers are not even aware the shoes are carrying the city names. Not to mention the Midland industrial towns.

    Perhaps they are choosing those names as they just sound cool, and also chances are bigger someone from those Midland UK towns will purchase the shoes with the name of city they live in. I guess it can only be odd to a more urban gentlemen living in UK.

    It appears as going by the Edward Green catalogue that you can get the Malvern on the 82 or 202 Last. However if you wish to get it in Chestnut you'll need to get it on the 82 Last. Is this true, and doesn't that seem odd? Or is this this the way Edward Green typically works by restricting certain colors to certain Lasts?

    Obviously, the Cheaney shoe-naming committee must have had a sharp dislike (if not hatred) for Birmingham and Brummies. (For our American friends, the Birmingham population is known as "Brummies", just as the people of Manchester are "Mancunians".)

    It is likely true for the season, and it does not seem odd. This is just how Edward Green operates. It's worth making a call. They may have older stock of the style and color in the last that you prefer. Otherwise, you can try other resellers, but it may be special make up only. If that fails, chances are you will have to rely on an MTO.
