    Z, I agree the Carter is one my favorites too, and I consider it as one of the top 5 EG shoes ever. I just picked one up myself too. RLPL should have ordered the Carter in more color options, it will be stunning in burnt pine or Edwardian.

    I should have an Ecton in acorn arriving early next week from the UK, I'll post as soon as it does. Virginia Dandy also has a lovely example from last year's trunk shows.

    Andrew, I think you should post an EG pictorial color chart like sysdoc did. I know that kind of responsibility may now fall on your shoulder whether you like it or not. I don't think my color chart is as complete as yours, over top of my head I only have Acorn, Dark Oak, Chestnut, Edwardian and may be another shade or two of brown or burgundy that I don't know what they called in EGreenian color scheme.

    Will do VR...I think I have most everything save birch. I'll include suedes too.

    Edit: New thread posted with color study of basic EG hides. I will do comparisons of suedes and country hides as well.

    I'm not one for black shoes, but I love the Adaleide in black.

    Wow... This confirms that the black Lichfield's from EG on the 82 last I plan to order soon could look really good.

    I like that "very traditional, yet a bit different" look ... That is, different to those who can see it (most will probably never notice). Congratulations, very nice shoes !

    I really like JL Adelaide, a little different from the regular quarter brogue.

    Side by side Mackay and Carter

    Aportnoy, the Carter is truly beautiful, what color is it?

    Diorshoe, would you identify the shoes in the pictures? Especially the fifth on from the right.

    Don't give up just yet. Bengal mentioned that Asprey London store is still selling them at regular price and he has been eyeing them. It's only a matter of time the London store will put them on sale, when they do you should give them a call to see if they change their mind and ship overseas. Or a London SF member may pick up a pair for you.

    These babies are really gorgeous, they're a completely different beast from the EG version.

    vR, thanks for the (almost) daily dose of shoe porn. I really like the multiple shots of one pair of shoe (hint hint, Andrew), keep them coming, let the porns flow free, the more the merrier.

    Any tips for lighting shoes for these shots? I find it hard to get a good picture.
