Great explanation. Thanks for taking the time. If I knew my size in EG, i'd be sorely tempted to take up your offer on the SF Galway buy, but alas... Visiting London next year so have to put the dream on hold til then.
Ah, I see. So the calf/pebble combination is still one that EG will make? Can I also re-ask my questions (in bold) from earlier, quoting your post, LeJouvre: " 888 needs to be fully lined because 888 is typically a last for a city shoe. For the ignorant among us (me), could you elaborate on this? Is lining just a comfort thing? Looks like neither of those two boots has the full double sole, at best you will find the "HAF" sole, which is not...
Does anyone remember a post in the last year or so of a member in a garden setting wearing a tweed suit and brown/burgundy brogued boots? I know it's not much to go on... If it helps: ensemble looked damn good!
I trawled through heaps of pages, but to no avail. Maybe someone has saved the image/link?
Hmm. Perhaps I got one size too small and am forced to pull it higher than it is meant to be worn.
Do you have jeans in both styles? I guess i'm just asking people with both styles which they find is more roomy in the crotch, and do they all go up one size in the SkG?
Perhaps a daft question, but is the skinny guy going to have less ball divison/crotch crush than the weird guy? I notice the WG is described as low rise and the SkG as medium rise, but the front rise measurements on Tate & Yoko suggest WG is 1/2" higher/longer??? I have a pair of WG and find them a bit divisionary. Will the SkG accommodate my needs better (leaving aside the obvious other measurement differences)?
Yes they do look unworn, but why??? Those babies deserve to be out and about. If I could pick 3 pairs of C&J to acquire, those styles would be my choices (maybe Seymour II instead of Lowndes).
I have Edgwares, which are not a boot. But if you do want to see them, go back a few pages in this thread.
