    Ok, so if nothing else a regular MTO could be done if I wanted. Thanks

    I would try to resist the temptation to do an MTO, and I would try to find a retailer who has the makeup you want in chestnut. Certain styles are produced year after year, and this make up seems to be a part of EG's core line. Also, this seems like the style that would crop up on eBay or the marketplace from time to time.

    I may do exactly that, in fact I'm not quite ready yet anyway. I'm just considering my next move for now.

    When you are considering that shoe, I think you should consider doing it on the 888 - it just looks so sharp! I'm thinking about placing a MTO towards the end of the year in Edwardian, Chestnut or Burned Pine :D

    I'm also looking at the Inverness and that would be on the 888. Not sure which will be first however. After looking at a few shoes in Edwardian, I'm pretty sure I'll be going for Chestnut. I just think Chestnut looks better at this point.

    I have the feeling he finds the 202 a more comfortable and more classic last than the 888 at least when it comes to the Malvern. I believe EG has chosen particular lasts for certain stock models for a reason. There may be some models on which the 888 is well suited (e.g. Asquith), I merely contend the Malvern is not one of them. Also, just because the 888 looks sharp, does not mean it fits well. The 888 and 82 provide a less accommodating or forgiving fit than other Oxford lasts IMO. Cheers.

    Actually, I'm thinking about the 82 for the Malvern.

    Sure thing, the inverness is also on my bucket list, but I have a feeling it will look better in darker colours. But have a look at the Malvern on 888:

    Trying out my EG shell PTBs...

    (Or, at least, the auction said they were shell. But I can't find a listing for non-burgundy shell Windermeres and these don't look burgundy to me...)
