    A light that burns that brightly would only dim the glow of all that surrounds it.

    Andrew, I think you're buying those Beaulieus just to torment me. I've got to pick up a pair at the next EG sale.

    I like them all but the Inverness and Beaulieu are my favorites.

    What stores did you buy from?

    So you have every single pair of EG now and you're moving on to Vass? When do we get pics of the whole collection? [​IMG]

    Those Vass shoes are just ridiculously beautiful. I so want that London Derby.

    Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to acquire one of each model in the current Edward Green catalog. Once completed, you are to work backwards through their earlier catalogs to round up models like that Gucci-style loafer they make. For extra Edward Green bingo, you must acquire a pair of Greens in each color they currently offer. Similarly, a pair of Greens in each Cirrus Calf shade and each leather type (country calf, pin grain, Scotland grain, willow calf, suede in all colors). Lastly (har har), you are to acquire a pair of Greens on each last they offer -- not today's 82s and 888s but the 88, 89, 808, 404, 61, 65, 505, 33, 32, 201, 909, 58 and 540...
