    I own 4 pairs of Tramezzas, they are some of my favorite shoes, and some of Vass's lasts with the high toebox intrigue me, but I think you can't beat the antiquing on EG shoes or their special order program.

    I only wish I could find someplace to try on EG shoes in various lasts, since I've been lusting after the EG Ashby, in particular, for almost a year. So far, I've only been able to determine that whatever last is used for the RL Mackays (the 888?) is a little too snug for me in a US 12D. I suppose the 202 might work, since Lobb's 8896 last in UK size 11E is a nearly perfect fit. In August, I'll be in San Francisco, so maybe I'll visit Wilks Bashford (if I get ambitious, I'll drive up before August).


    Thinman - Wilkes has not carried Greens for quite some time. I got a funny look when I brought up Greens. They have Lobbs, Gravati, Barrett, Stefanobi and that is about it, IIRC. This is all as of last fall, but I don't think that they've added Green back to the mix.

    That said, I do recall at least one EG vendor in Northern California, but can't remember who it was...

    Wilkes only carries JL of the brands you mention. Shoot me a PM when you come up, and I will be happy to either show you around or give you some suggestions.

    Here's Shyam's email in response to me:

    Yes, the surcharge is waived for 3 pairs or more but only if all the 3 pairs
    are say Dover in colour olive. The only variation allowed is size and (I
    think) width. I'm sure you can order anything listed in the catalogue,

    Thanks for the information and for the offer of help. And thanks, whoopee, for reminding me about Malouf's. As I recall, no one in _Southern_ CA carries EG, correct? It would be nice to find EG's closer to home.

    What last are the Newmarket boots on? How is the chisel shape compared to the C&J Paris Cowdray, which has a narrow toe and a patination service to boot? [​IMG]

    That Newmarket is on the 888. The 337 of the Cowdray is more elongated and a bit narrower and rounder at the toe. As the two are some of the most often discussed lasts on this forum, I'm sure you could find some pictures.

    I have a pair of Grenson Masterpiece chelseas rebadged for Cordonnerrie Anglaise that look exactly like those Newmarkets. They are probably my favorite pair of shoes. The shape of that last is excellent.

    That's true when I checked in November 2005, unless you count the ones Ralph Lauren sells. I don't know of any shoe in that class or higher being sold in SoCal, except perhaps for the odd JL Paris that show up in NM or Hermes. Barneys has a small selection of C&J, but I'm not sure which line they're from. Ian Daniels has sporadic shipments of St. Crispins.

    Custom shoe makers do show up. I think Cleverley makes a stop in Beverly Hills every so often, and we have our share of cowboy bootmakers.

    Foxx, the Cowdray is only available from C&J Paris, however the London store can order you a pair.

    They also have an antiquing service.

    hmmm....torn! torn like an old sweater!

    I'm going to obtain additional details of the Edward Green Newmarket boots, and attempt to make payment via Paypal with plal.com
    Since i'm about to begin my new job, i guess i'll spring for them! only thing is, they will take at least 5 weeks to get here, as he has to order them (but, i won't be wearing them until fall anyway....[​IMG] )

    At work, mostly.
    Got a message from Plal today; it sure sounds good to me!!!

    "We haven't yet started carrying them [newmarket boots] yet but we're planning to bring in our first order soon so if there's anything you need, please let me know.

    The price of Newmarket will be M$2999 (about US$799, a bit more now due to exchange rate) - but we can offer you free shipping via registered airmail if you're charging to your credit card. Basically:

    M$2699 (about US$699) for standard stock shoes

    M$2999 (about US$799) for hand-sewn and boot stock styles

    M$565 (US$150) surcharge for special orders of less than 3 pairs per style/colour.

    M$369 (US$99) for same-last trees.

    Best regards,

    Shyam"

    I'm not sure I understand correctly those rates...
    What would that mean for a pair of, say, Berkeley in black on the 82 last ?

    If that is a special order the price would be about $850 USD.
