Gaziano & Girling vs. Edward Green I thought it might be fun to compare two fine examples of English craftsmanship. Excuse the poor quality pictures. I'm just learning how to post images, and black shoes are really difficult to photograph! For comparison we have two pairs of black stitch cap oxfords. Both shoes are marked UK 9 1/2 E. Here is the Edward Green Chelsea 202 Last (cost--$975 w/ free shipping) from Sky Shoes in DC. Next, we have a Gaziano & Girling Oxford GG06 Last (cost 500GBP including shipping-which was approximately $1000 at the time of purchase) ordered directly from Dean Girling. Note the differences in styling. The G&G shoe (R) has a much more elongated toe cap. At first, I wasn't so sure about the virtues of the elongated toe cap, but I think it looks much better when the shoe is being worn. The Chelsea features a "swan's neck" stitching by the laces. The Chelsea (above) is 11 7/8" long. The G&G's (below) are longer at 12 1/4". Note the G&G shoe (in front) has a beautiful beveled waist. This exquisite detail did not really show up in the photos, it is quite striking in person.
