    I want to buy a new pair of brown brogues or perhaps half-brogues.  Something in a darkish brown, fairly 'relaxed' (single sole, not double) that could be worn with jeans or moleskins on a Saturday, but that would polish up nicely for church on a Sunday.  I'm thinking of going to John Lobb (the RTW range from the shop on Jermyn Street) or Edward Green in the Burlington Arcade; or perhaps Cleverley's, though they don't have a big RTW selection.  What style/model would you recommend (link to a picture would be great)?

    No helpful word of advice or encouragement for me? I'll be in the shops tomorrow afternoon. My oen preference is a pair of EG Plymouths...

    How about the EG Berkeley or Chelsea?

    Edward Green has just launched a new round-toed last 82, which is more elegant then the long established 202. I believe the first production shoes are to hit Burlington Arcade by the end of the month. You'll find some pictures here: http://www.styleforum.net/cgi-bin....5;st=10 It might be worth postponing your purchase for a couple of weeks until shoes made on the new last are actually in the shop.

    Thanks for the news, bengal-stripe. I will hang on until I can compare shoes made on the new last with the older lasts that I know work well for me (202 and 606). I have a very broad foot, so the 82 may represent a bit of a challenge, but we shall see...

    Regards,

    while in that neighborhood, Tricker's is worth a look
