 Thank you very much Sir. Your suggestion is much appreciated. I'll try to put that in practice. Cheers.
I do wear my Barbour, among  a few other rags, in town and agree that the frontier between an urban environment and the countryside has become insignificant over the years. Actually, I also wear a pair of Galways at work. What I meant, and sorry if it comes confusing as English is not my native language, is that the conjunction of Galways, with veldtschoen construction, with a Zug leather becomes almost a technical equipment and if you're gonna have it, then use it in the...
In my humble opinion, what is anachronistic is to buy Veldtschoen Zug Galways to wear around town, whether they have leather soles with metal studs or rubber soles, when these are boots typically made to wear in proper conditions on the field (countryside or something alike).

Hi.Thank you very much for all the praise on my boots shown a few pages back. To answer one of the questions raised, I am not the first owner and I confirm they have not been kept safely inside a closet during all these years. Although they were pampered just before I took the photos, they have been on the field and used as the rugged country boots they're expected to be. For the sake of science, and also to satisfy the curiosity of C&J aficionados, I just took some...
