I'm not a big EG fan but I think the EG looks the best with the SC a close second. The GC toebox looks too long and throws the balance off with the rest of the shoe.
It does look long in the picture but much better in real life.

Maybe its bc Im younger but I prefer the cleverleys but Im not a fan of the EG 202 last.
The EG 202 in the narrow C or D width has got to be one of the most elegant classic lasts on the market. It doesn’t have the stubby appearance of the standard E width.

I like the Cleverley Nakagawa, the curve on the last makes the shape more pronounced. Though it would be better if you put all those three shoes on a single photo and at the same angle. Cheers.
Will do a side by side comparison. I also have all three makers in black (all oxfords but mainly plain caps and a whole cut).

yup, the standard EG 202 on E doesn't look that great if you ask me....

How about EG’s last 82? It’s based on the 202 but is narrower, with an almondy and round toe. Easier to come by than those Cs or Ds.
I’ve have both 82E/82D (too sharp and too straight on the inside of the nose. Still not as elegant in my opinion as 202C/202D which are both true almond nose lasts.

Hi all,

I would like to organize a group purchase from George Cleverley.

From brenchmark line up to Anthony cleverley, my target is 12 pairs.

If you are interested, please drop down your name.

Thank you.

The price should be lower around - £50/ shoes

I don't believe AC are hand welted.
Correct, shoes from the Anthony Cleverley line are not handwelted. Their own website, when looking at any of their bespoke models, says:
"Rolled apron tassel loafer. Featuring leather linings, hand-welted, leather soles."
But when looking at any of their AC models it only says:
"Featuring leather linings and soles. Lasted shoetrees included."
without mentioning anything about Handwelted.


Does it matter? I don't think so. Hand welted is overrated. I own both Bespoke and AC models and I see nothing that would tell me this is handwelted and this is not.

In fact, I like my AC pairs more than my bespoke. The fit is another issue entirely.

I also own Vass and SC. There is nothing superior about that compared to G&G or AC. If any of you can tell the difference either when wearing them or by looking at them, you are probably not being truthful.

It's no different than saying you can tell when the coffee you are drinking is organic.
