Also posted in Recent Purchases thread... My new Sea-Dweller ref.16600
Came home with this (hmm, what could it be in the grey bag?): First, a pair of UNIQLO white jeans as per PG's recommendation: Next, a couple of magazines... how come they are watch magazines? Does that label say "16600"? I believe it does!
Pulled the trigger on the Thorpe. MH71, Rustic Arran Grain, Double Dainite Sole (leather middles), storm welt, steel eyelets and speed-lacer hooks. Now I just have to wait 4-5 months Pics to follow.

Suits for me.
I am thinking about getting a country boot for weekend walks - colour Almond Country Calf and with a Dainite sole. However, I am torn between the G&G Thorpe and the EG Nevis. I have a few EG's already and I am very happy with the quality and fit. I have no experience with G&G shoes other than trying them on in stores (they seem to fit me just as well as EG), and have never seen the Thorpe IRL, but from pictures the Thorpe looks very sleek and I basically prefer the look...
