    Thanks! I actually bought these lightly used so I don't really know when the former owner got them. But judging from the EG "serial number" and maker labels, I would probably say that they were made about 5 years ago or so.

    As to my knowledge, EG nowadays only offer the Dover on the 202, 606 and 82 - even when doing an MTO.

    Thanks guys!


    Since my last cross post was so well received, I thought I would continue on the same note. So here's another post from the EG thread. This time of my recently purchased EG Inverness' in dark oak, on the 888 last and in F width. Almost straight out of the box - after some reno, cream and polish - and never worn. Enjoy and have a nice Saturday!

    Very nice as well, although I think I would have personally chosen burgundy instead.

    Yup, burgundy is also a very nice make up, but a little less versatile IMO. Thats why I finally went with the dark oak, which is probably one of the most versatile browns in my experience.

    I find burgundy.more versatile than dark brown, but that might just be a personal preference. As to Dover on 82 I was told by Leffot that EG would not offer 82 as an option even for MTO, that was couple days ago

    I am not sure that burgundy would work so well with lighter colored pants like tan, khaki, cream and stone. But, as you said, this is probably mor a question of personal preference.

    Ok, so the only options available are the 606 and 202 then?

    I hate burgundy shoes unless it is shell. They always look kinda cheap, unless they are more of a brown/maroon.

    If have to see it, but I think the vintage Rioja G&G color is the only thing acceptable as far as burgundy goes in calf

    I assume Bordeux and Vintage Cherry (as per GG) are out then, I personally quite like vintage cherry, but yea vintage rioja is probably more versatile.

    Any fit pics of you wearing the G&G's? I'm always wondering how people work them in to an outfit (not just pant/sock/shoe combo). I never see full fits. Damn near ever.

    Haven't worn them in a while as I don't have to dress up for work anymore, but I wore them with dark grey or lighter grey trousers most of the time, probably a blue or white shirt up top. It's not noticeably green unless in direct sunlight
