    Hi Gang,

    I just thought I'd share with you a fun little moment for me. The Edward Green fairy arrived today and brought two shoe boxes full of goodies. I ordered these on March 31st and they arrived today so right on target with EG's 14 week timeframe.

    I must say, I've very happy with both of them! They are both in a size 10/10.5 D on the 888 last. For the Oundle, I requested lighter than normal stitching to provide more of a contrast with the Mocha Suede. The Ladbroke is in Dark Oak with medium antiquing.

    I must say that Edward Green's customer service was examplary. I dealt with Valerie who was incredibly patient and informative. A true pleasure to work with.

    Very, very nice. Not perfect as perfection does not exist in this world, but getting close to it IMHO.

    Both look great! Mind my asking why you went with an EG D width instead of their medium E fitting? Iirc, the 888 is not a particularly roomy last; are you a US10.5C?

    Wow! Thanks so much for all the kind words, guys!

    Most of the praise seems to be directed towards the Suede Oundle and justifiably so. I especially dig the contrast stitching I'm wearing them now and they are perhaps the most comfortable shoes I've yet worn right off the bat. Of course, I said the same thing about my suede Newmarkets!

    And yes, I fit best into slightly narrow widths such as a UK D and US C. Since they don't make tons of my shoes in that width I have lots of Tacco insoles and/or tongue pads. It's nice to have them perfected from the start with these!

    I should also note that EG was able to gently stretch both pairs at a specific point on my left instep where my knuckly sticks out more than on my right foot. Great service!
