    Does EG make riding boots?

    Can anyone ID all the shoes on the table? Shoe Fairy, Bengal, Jacuzzi, A Harris?

    I'll give it a try, start from the far left side around the 9:00 position

    1. suede cap toe derby: Whittier
    2. suede 2-eyelet with tasseled lace: don't know or too lazy to check the pic index
    3. Newbury with medallion
    4. Asquith/MacKay
    5. Malverne
    6. Double monk: Westminster
    7. Slight past 6:00 postion: Falmouth
    8. Southwold
    9. Kingsway
    10. Don't know, same as #2 but in calf
    11. Whittier
    12. It looks like a derby with peaked cap, don't know
    13. Inverness

    How do I do?



    No. 5 is the Inverness, not the Malvern.

    We'll call it a RLPL EG bastard child until we figure out what it is [​IMG] It's not the malvern.
    I believe Mackays have a straight cap, no? In any case, they're EGs on the 888.
    EG Inverness? [​IMG] Is should be simple, inside there is the last etc. Just check, at least it wil confirm last. and maybe some one here knows the style number.

    Inverness is a blind brogue/false brogue/whatever. only one of those seams is real. Not the Inverness.

    It's definately on the 888, under the size/last is 57516. I'll probably stop by a store next week to find out [​IMG] .

    the two in the pics are definitely different.

    The EG has at least one fake faux brogue seam - on the main wing. The RLPL has no fake seams that I can see

    Also the RLPL appears to have serrated pinking on all seams, whereas the EG has straight pinking. you can see it on the tongue

    If its a RLPL it is natural they made some changes. They do after all make a "smal" batch ...
    I just thought it was the closest I could find in EG RTW.

    Naturalat II, I really liked the look of your Dimitri Gomez's

    Did Bown's Bespoke influence you at all to go for red...or did you too have voices in your head collectively calling for red?

    Edward Green used to make the boots for the Household Cavalry, but not any more:

    [​IMG]

    In that picture, taken at the old EG factory (now John Lobb), you'll find a pair hanging from the shelves.
    "˜Old England' also exhibits a sample of the Household Cavalry boots.

    [​IMG]

    I believe the boots displayed on the table are also of historical interest only.




    Sorry, far too much work early in the morning!


    Who makes the Household Cavalry boots (aka jack boots) now?

    Does that mean EG used to be a Royal Warrant holder?

    Not certain.It might be Schnieder Boots:

    EG (despite making those boots) never held a Royal Warrant.

    They are G&G Fairmont on TG73 in vintage pine, bought from the eBay "sale".
    It's the softest leather I have ever found on rtw shoes and the fit is perfect.
    Unfortunately shoe trees are currently out of stock for my size....I have to wait until mid september to order them.
