    The sole is very different, more akin to Gaziano & Girling than EG for example.

    I definitely have heard the above, (and someone on this forum even saw the boxes at EG!), but the shoe is structurally so different from EG - sole, heel, and general finish - but a give away is the cut-out with the model name and size. But AC have a great deal here as it is so different from any EG, whereas their standard line is clearly rebranded Crockett`s.

    Just received my first pair of ACs this week. My favourite colour just happened to come in stock in my size at Cleverley. Thanks to Adam Fry for shipping them down. It is the Nakagawa style in steel antique.

    Simply a work of art, the radical squareness of the toe will take some getting used to (even though I am a chisel toe guy, these take it to the next level for me). I think it makes them very formal indeed, combined with the sleek, thin beveled sole. Just something I have not seen yet. They feel extraordinarily light too and I think this has been mentioned before.

    They fit beautifully. For reference, my best fit is the G&G MH71, and these in the same size have same room in the toe (maybe just slightly more), better fit in the arch and very comparable in the heel with a slightly lower instep (at least so it felt out of the box).

    Fantastic colour on those. What size are you in these and other makers? Trying to figure out what size to order myself!

    I'm the same size 7E in C&J (348/337), Carmina (Rain), G&G (MH71), George Cleverley (rtw), AC, A.Testoni, Paul Smith; I own some Guccis from way back and they are 6.5UK. I will say that the C&J are a good, but not optimal fit for me, they are too wide in the heel, but the instep is too low for me to size down. Carmina Rain is slightly small. G&G are the best fit, followed by AC.

    Thanks for sharing! The toe doesn’t look square, I feel, from these angles. Any chance for a top-down shot, to see how they look from the wearer’s perspective?

    Agreed, the more I look at them at them too, they don't seem that square. But, they are the squarest I have, so probably first impression bias. Also, the straight cut sole might stress it more.

    In reality, I think they might be just slightly less squared (and less tapered) than a TG73 or Square Deco.

    Word on the street is that they’re made by Edward Green.

    Do you mind telling us how much they were?

    Directly from the store? This is cheaper than EG mainline...

    Are those price with promotion though? Think this is about the time all the UK guys are doing sales (CJ/EG at least)

    Yes, directly from store. Wasn't informed of any promotion. Again though, ex-VAT means in-store price would be 1050£. Not sure whether EG listed online prices are ex-VAT too.

    I contacted Cleverley directly, and they only have one sale per year, and that's in December.

    EG listes online prices include VAT. Unlike Anthony Cleverley shoes which come with lasted trees, EG shoe trees are extra and not lasted.

    SIZING

    @AriG or other recent owners of Cleverleys AC line.

    Can anyone comment on sizing for Anthony Cleverly shoes vs Edward Green and G&G?

    I spoke with the sales person and all he would say is they are a snug fit vs the Cleverley RTW line. He declined to even mention the competition.

    Would you size up by width or length? For AC vs EG or GG
