    Here's a side view of the four EGs on the 888...

    I much prefer the 888 EGs to the JLs. I thought that a JL was going to be my 'dream' shoe, but I think that Andrew has changed all that.

    Sorry, once again, that was two weeks worth shoe buying? I thought I was bad when I got three pairs of used Tramezzas in the post over the weekend...

    Those look VERY VERY lovely Aportnoy. I think EG's 888 808 89 last shapes are thing of beauty. I used to favor Italian shoes for sleek and modern style, but those EG last changed my perception for good. I Love EG. They are my favorite shoes and I do not think I'll be buying any other shoes.

    It's occurred to me that the Holcot is very similar to this bespoke EG:

    Andrew - you should've got them in burgundy. [​IMG]

    My favourites are the Berkeley and Gladstone; I like my shoes simple.

    My favorite shot. I'd happily wear any of these.

    They are nice shoes but if I were to go in a shoe shop I would past them by for many a more pleasing Italian made shoe. To each his own.

    P, is Berkeley on triple sole? The sole looks very thick.

    Such as? Kiton, Lattanzi, Santoi, StefanoBi?

    mussel...Both the Berkelely and the Sandringham are on double soles with custom metal toe and heel plates done by Edward Reiter in Germany. They also have a mild rounding which is much like a fiddle-back waist.

    They are truly gorgeous and unlike any EG soles that I have encountered

    LOL TK....the EG bespoke that you've chosen is almost identical to what I comissioned last week from Paolo Scafora. Mine will be done in antique brown, though I do love the burgundy!

    They are all beautiful but I really like the Southwold in dark oak. Gorgeous!
