    This. BB sells EG as EG, not Peal, these days.

    That is an Edward Green sole, but look closely at the broguing on the uppers in that sole picture. Now look at the image of that shoe from the side.

    They do not match.

    Yes, that's a EG heel. If it's EG, which model is it???

    If it fits well, yes. If it does not fit well, no.


    Sleeves will shrink. Seams will pucker on non-non-irons.


    In the winter, sometimes put them in the dryer on no heat, then hang to dry somewhere inside. Otherwise hang outside.

    Wash cold, delicate cyle, in a new front-loader. For years I had a top-loader with one speed -- thrash -- from about 1980. It broke buttons, frayed collars, twisted things up pretty bad.


    Light blue


    Not sure ... these things evolve. The last non-iron I had was an oxford that had been treated ... finished ... with some kind of chemical that wore off. This was a long time ago. I'm guessing that frequent laundry will degrade the non-ironess of modern fabrics but I don't know.

    Good eye. This man is right.

    If you pay attention to where the leather is supposed to overlap, the sole picture does not reflect that.

    It appears that they attached the EG Inverness sole with that picture.

    :fu:

    One other thing that's maybe worth sharing. I was just looking through the BB emails.

    Last year I ordered 3 shirts on Christmas. Two came on December 30 and the third arrived on April 8.

    I will be curious to see when the Fitzgerald charcoal tic suit will actually ship. I bought mine several weeks ago, and the ship date was 02/12/2012. I see they have not pulled it for the semi-annual sale even though the ship date is still February 2012.

    I'm not sure if Sanders makes BB shoes? I think the made in UK ones are mostly C&J or AS for the standard line.

    For the linked shoe, the pattern doesn't line up as someone else mentioned, looks like they swapped soles for the picture.

    My BB non-iron shirts have held up for a few years with no issues. Now, it's the case that some EB no-irons I had years ago did in fact, after a time, become the MOST wrinkle prone shirts I owned...

    I was at work all day and BB's site wouldn't let me check out for the past half-hour before 12 am. :(
