1. Hi. We moved systems, and because it was impossible to achieve feature parity between the systems, we opted to archive the old B&S threads but allow users to read them so that they can put them into our new B&S system.

    There is a support thread if you have any issues.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    For sale I have one pair of the simply stunning Edward Green Brooksville. I believe this model was made exclusively for Ralph Lauren Purple Label from a couple of seasons ago, and indeed the sole treatment does suggest the shoe was made for RLPL. However this particular pair has an Edward Green branded sockliner, not the usual black RL version.

    The Brooksville is a Longwing Derby style shoe, perhaps the sleekest shoe of that style I have ever encountered. It's essentially an English take on that American classic, the Alden gunboat longwing. Note how the broguing on the upper flanks closely mirrors the shoe it inherits from. The pattern does differ from the more traditional Alden longwing in that there is a larger additional leather panel at the heel, as opposed to a narrow strip.

    Made in England from a beautiful combination of Dark Oak Antique Calf and Mink Suede. Crafted on the elegant, slightly squared, 888 last and featuring a single oak bark tanned leather sole. Since they are designated as Antique Calf there is some archetypal EG burnishing at the toe and heel.

    Size is 9.5UK, 10US - standard E width. These are new with box, including polishing mat but without shoe bags. They are a first quality pair from the Jermyn Street store. Uppers and soles are absolutely pristine with barely a trace of shop wear.

    Price is $950 -> $900 shipped CONUS or the EU
