- Reaction score
This morning, for some reason, I flashed on a pair of shoes I gave to Goodwill a while ago. I suddenly regretted giving them away. I thought "hmm, I wonder if anyone else had a pair of these or knows about them". They were marked "Designed by Edward Green for Paul Stuart". So far so good, just like my other EG Stuart shoes. They were loafers, black shell cordovan, stamped as such on the sole. They had the countours of an English slipon - the squarish tongue, high-ish vamp. They also had the handsewn look of made-in-Maine loafers. And inside... here's the anomaly, they were marked "Made in U.S.A." Well, even the EG-made Paul Stuarts were marked "Designed by Edward Green..." but these obviously were designed by them and made elsewhere. Any info will ease my nostalgia. I gave them away because having once fit me beautifully the instep had stretched so much they no longer stayed on.
