Those creases look like shell to me.
Can't be definitive from a pic, but it sure looks like shell to me.
It definitely seems to be shell, but I've never felt EG calf so I suppose I can't be 100% sure.
I'll take some more pictures this weekend with a non-iPhone camera. The shoes are from Leffot so I wonder if this was a trunk show offering or something.
Wow, first time I have seen the Malvern on the 888. Having owned the Inverness for some time, I think that these are a step up from the Inverness. I think that real broguing of the Malvern looks allot better than the faux broguing of the Inverness.
EG "890" Pop Up at Harrods
(from the mail blast).
Balanced, sculpted and elegant, the 890 is a our new chisel-toe. The capsule collection we're presenting at Harrod's reflects that - four cleanly detailed shoes which compliment the form of the last. The Newbury wholecut is made from a single piece of the world's finest calfskin. The Ashton is a new single-strap monk; The Laughton a simple, modern Adelaide; and the Shelton, our elegant three eyelet derby.
Our Harrod's pop-up is in the men's shoe department until October 21st. The 890 collection will be available from Edward Green from November.
^ Did they really misspell "complement"?
Maybe it's different over there. Haha!
I agree that it represents the color well.
Agree. Looks great!
Does anybody know which color is lighter : Edwardian, Chestnut, Burnt-pine maybe others? (in brown shade EG)
I think in this context "compliment" is correct (four designs which add nice things to the inherent beauty of the last, like a certain dress colour which does compliment your complexion).
In the case of the tie and shirt quoted, you could say either: they both make a set or the two items lift each other onto a higher plane of aesthetic satisfaction.
Edwardian is the lighest. Burnt pine is sort of in between dark oak and edwardian I'd say. Sometimes it ends up very close to DO.Chestnut is a darker edwardian with more orange in it.
Or the other way round; the inverness is already available in burgundy, whereas the Malvern on 888 is not. If we drum up enough interest we might convince Skoak to stock it. Even though it apparently should be done as a MTO2 by EG, they have done it plenty of times in the past as special runs for whatever shoe store. At least I found it in several colours on ebay on the 888...
Well, I've been debating a lot with myself over the Inverness vs. the Malvern, and I think the Malvern is a less dandyish shoe if that makes sense. The Inverness is on my bucket list as well, but in something like dark oak I guess. If you're interested in the Malvern on the 888 we could try and get a GMTO going...
Thank you Stefan88!
Great info, I've often wondered this as well. Thanks!
