    Because she thrills you whenever you spend time together, and when you are apart, you can't help but feel like you are missing something.

    Soooooooooooooo, a little research leads me to believe that Paul Stuart made in England shoes are made by Edward Green? Can somebody confirm this?

    I have never heard that Edward Green has made for Paul Stuart.....only heard that the "Stuart's Choice" line of Paul Stuart is made by Grenson to Grenson Masterpiece standards.

    Just did a quick search on ebay and it looked like some of their made in England models are EG's

    A forum I used to post on had an "e-bay idiot" thread where members could post all the stupid auctions they found. It was a forum primarily for hockey gearheads, so this involved stuff like listings where somebody would post two mismatched gloves and list them in the title as a pair from a third, entirely different, company (and if you're not familiar with hockey gear, the maker's logo or name is pretty much always printed or embroidered very large on the outside), or put prices on things that were hilariously out of whack. Say, $1,000 for a pro return stick from a minor star. They go through well over 100 a season, and often send sticks back to the manufacturer for very minor defects, or imaginary ones. Those sticks are bought in bulk by hockey shops, and are sold with no warranty at a discount.

    Anyway, that would qualify for the SF version. Come to think of it, why isn't there such a thread around here?

    Ok, so a little more research reveals that Grenson is most likely the maker, although the PS's are made to a higher standard than Grenson's self labeled line.

    Mainy and DM7...oh my GOD. Sick shit all around.


    I haven't had much luck or really found shit lately. Passed on 1 Faconnable plaid shirt. Tagged L but it was a bit wide for me. Also passed on 2 Faconnable Jeans plaid shirts. Same issue, same sizes and a Bullock & Jones sickkkkk plaid shirt tagged XL that was just way too big for me. If anyone would be interested in them for cost+ship then I'll return to see if they're there. That's pretty much it lately and it sucks! Also some Ferragamo wingtips that were pretty beat up.

    Paul Stuart has a few different lines, all with different levels of quality, but I'm pretty sure you're right - the Stuart's Choice line is made by Grenson to PS's standards. PS's highest line is their Ltd. Edition one. These shoes retail $1,150. I suspect these are Edward Green.

    Because if you do it right you end up with MORE money in your pocket, not less

    ^^^ I woke up to this and tore the blankets off my wife and flipped my desk!

    edit: I also flipped my desk over DM7's 5 trashbags of freshly laundered and pressed Turnbull & Asser shirts, but it was late and had been a long day. But still flipped, nonetheless. [​IMG]
