We received a delivery of Edward Green MTO’s and immediately realized a very interesting coincidence. All of the pairs had a fraternal twin, a mate or partner if you will in the parlance of our times.
This group really got me psyched; there are some very special shoes here.

Two EG MTO’s arrived recently, each a favorite derby and oxford of mine. I own a pair of the Perth and have a pair of Falkirk on order.
Perth 888 last Burgundy Crup – MTO
Falkirk 888 last Burnt Pine – MTO
I really love the brouging on the Falkirk; the thistle toe medallion in particular is quite exceptional.
We received a few new MTO’s. I normally post the information about the shoes but as a change of pace let’s see who can name, the maker (easy) style, last and colors. I’m calling it the MTO quiz. Good luck, there is one in particular that may be tricky.
As we hold our Edward Green Trunk Show I thought it was a perfect time to post a few new MTO’s we received this week from them.
Warwick in Loden Suede on 888 Last and Dainite Soles
Litchfield Edwardian Antique on 888 Last with Rams head Medallion
Canterbury Chestnut Antique on 888 Last with Rams head Medallion
Shannon try on stage 888 Last (These will be Dark Oak)
Edward Green will offer a part made try on pair of MTO shoes if we need to make sure of a size that is not a typical fit.
They arrive in protective wrap and without soles as you can see by the cork. At this point they can be adjusted a width wider or narrower. Here we have two shoes that were sent to us in the try on stage:
The Walcot, Before
And the finished model in Black Calf on the 888 Last
The Ecton, Before
And the finished model in Dark Oak Antique on the 888 Last
In the case of the Ecton you can notice that the color of the try on pair was not yet finished. These were also finished on the Thames Soles.
As I mentioned we received a number of pairs of MTO’s from Edward Green on Friday. I plan to show them all in time but let’s start with these.
The Sandringham 606 Last Burgundy Antique and Mahogany Country Calf on HAF Soles
The Shepton 888 Last Edwardian Antique
The Galway 606 Last Rosewood Country Calf on Ridgeway Soles
The Welland 82 Last Black Calf
The Westwood 606 Last Dark Oak
The Shepton, and Westwood are newer models, which do not appear in the current EG catalog. I have pictures of several more EG MTO’s, which I’ll share in the coming days.
