    I picked up these beauties during the EG sale a while back and have been meaning to share some pictures. They're the Beaulieu in Chestnut Antique on the 888 last. Following RJMan's advice in another post, I've been polishing the toe and counters with burgundy polish to very nice effect. Being brown shoes you'd think they'd be for farmer, but note the absence of brogueing, so crucial for allowing the water to flow out when one is mucking about in the fields...

    Very, very nice.

    Tonight I polished my brown monks with a little black on the toe and counters and then a full polish with cordovan polish. It really gave it some nice depth.

    Can anyone give some sizing guidance on the Beaulieu on the 82 last? I've heard from some that you may need to size-up, and from others that you would need to size down....

    I found them fairly true to size.

    I love the Beaulieu...have it in burgundy on the 82.

    Went with my usual EG size 9.5/10. I have the 82 in a D width and two E widths and am hard pressed to tell the difference.

    True to size. Maybe a little bit narrower in the toe-box than, say, the 202.

    I typically wear 11.5 D in EG, and I got these in 11 E on the theory that 82 is long and narrow. Mistake. The first wearing was agony. The shoes broke in OK, but I would never do it again. I have another pair of EG 82 11 Es that I have not worn, will never wear, and plan to sell.

    I went up a width and did not size down. They fit, but the Es probably would have fit fine too.

    Anybody tried Trickers version of the austerity brogue? http://www.pediwear.co.uk/detail.php?stock_ID=2278

    I think it is made especially for pediwear. Only available in one color, unfortunately.


    Confusing listing....the call it a "wing cap derby" which it isn't.

    It also has a dainite sole - rather unusual for what I consider to be a rather dressy shoe.
