Two by Two

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.

Edaward Green – MTO’s

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.

I really love the brouging on the Falkirk; the thistle toe medallion in particular is quite exceptional.

Edward Green MTO’s

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)

MTO’s Before And After

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.

Edward Green MTO’s Part I

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.
