    I'm very very interested. Can you provide some pixtures?

    Should be a cross between these Aldens:

    and these EGs:

    On the Hampton last:

    Here's a pic comparing the Hampton last to the EG 202 last, Alden on bottom, pic from jcusey:

    I don't know if Tom ordered extras or not. You might check with him about it.

    What shoes are you seriously considering buying in the next say 6 months? Let us live vicariously through you. ;-)

    Me? A pair of Alden cordovan shoes, maybe bluchers.


    Just my recently ordered bespoke Cleverleys of which I still owe half... [​IMG] Thinking I should pay them off as the Pound keeps rising.

    i really need one sleek black captoe pair or black london chukka or dressy chukka boot.

    i have several weddings to go to this summer and thereafter, and none of my shoes can work with the suits i have.


    my choices would be down to

    any rlpl MII or MIE (perhaps at the next GVH clearance sale)
    Vass old english II in black italian polish on U last
    maybe something that comes up at the next EG shoe sale.

    I can't decide between the JL Wroxham and the EG Chelsea.

    I'm actually done buying shoes.

    I've got the RL shell tassel loafer coming tomorrow though.

    But if I see a real nice pair of two toned spectator, I might be tempted. I've searched high and low and couldn't find any.

    Saving up to get the C & J Belgrave in chestnut.

    Or maybe the Weymouth in dark brown. I can't decide. I've gone back and forth a few times.

    I'm waiting for my alden cigar shell longwing from Adam. My next shoe purchase will probably be an alden boots from leather soul (for fall). Right now I'm trolling around for some white bucks, seude wingtip, or plain toe dark brown single monk strap and #8 shell penny loafer.

    technically my next pair is my MTO EG Oundles in dark oak, which haven't received yet. but as far as impulses not yet acted upon, i had my eye on a pair of G&G, but recently have thought about giving Aubercy RTW a whirl... [​IMG]
    I can't decide between the JL Wroxham and the EG Chelsea.
    i have both. if you want my opinion the Chelsea is classic and timeless, while the Wroxham is drop dead sexy, but less classic. depends on what you're going for

    In the next 6 months? It will be one of the following possibilities, and only if I am working:
    1. My first pair of Shell Cordovan (Alden possibly)
    2. CapToe or Wingtip or Monkstrap Boots
    3. Some form of Wingtip Monk
    4. Some form of Triple Monk CapToe
    I am suffering from some sort of Monkstrap sickness, looking at endless pictures of Monkstraps. Even in my dreams they appear, pair after pair, [​IMG] on giant rotating platters, each pair in turn, offering themselves to me, with angelic singing in the background; only my arm is never long enough to reach any.
