    Working on it - some of these Sales Guys should be ashamed of themselves ( clueless when it comes to Last detail, color etc).
    Pretty sure the Boot is not The Shannon. EG reference is The Halifax. I will confirm when they arrive.

    I am curious on the G&G Loafer. Is it an early version of The Antibes?

    The longwing is the Brooksfield. The dark oak blucher is the Braylon. The 3-eyelet saddle shoe in edwardian antique is the Ranell. Those are the only ones I've picked up recently. I certainly could have been wrong about the Dover Boot being the Shannon.

    Hi Spoo,

    I think the Dover boot (EG Halifax) is called the Phelan. Supposedly sold out in our size though.....

    The boot is the halifax on the 89 last

    The loafer looks like the antibes twisted strap, on a prehistoric last and the dover stitched apron. Interesting...the last is horrid though.

    The G&G loafers I purchased are called "Keston".

    When I receive the black captoe's and the dover like boot in the mail I will let you know the names.

    RL sells lasted trees for the g&g's and eg's?

    Quite the opposite for me... they had about three models that I really liked that were in my size before going w/ the longwings in chestnut

    iirc the last time they had a sale like this there were only two models available, both in black: Peering and Mackay

    What do you find so 'horrid' about the Last? It looks to me as though it would make a good casual work shoe. No uglier than the clunky old mens shoe's SF get's so hard for.
    Just sayin'....
