    Thanks! They look great. In all fairness to EG, I should mention that they actually can do a 1.5 tapering to a single as I had done on these monks. I think the SC's are sexier, but EG does what it can in its traditional mannerisms.

    Since these were taken I've darkened the shoes a slight touch with Kiwi dark brown polish so they are more of a cross between Edwardian (original color) and Burnt Pine which looks fantastic.

    The picture looks rather like welted tapering to Blake-stitched. There's at least one Japanese brand I know of (Shetland Fox?) that makes shoes that way.

    Believe it or not, but even OTR (!) monks can be comfortable... Really!

    Your Oundles look great in Edwardian. I hadn't realise EG can do a 1.5 taper to a single, thanks for the heads up I would try it on my next order. I agreed EG still do classic shoes very well, I haven't totally given up on them just yet.

    The leather is actually ugly. With what kind of clothes do you want to match those?
