If you were ordering a MTO EG tomorrow.. - Page 5

post #61 of 79
I've been back and forth about the G&G adelaide. At first I hated it, then I warmed to it, and lately I have cooled on it again. I think I prefer the more traditional EG version, with or without a medallion.

I've felt that way about several models in the line and disliked most of the rest.

But I like the Wells and think the Rothschild is the best RTW brogue I've ever seen.

Has anyone ordered the EG Oundle? I really like this shoe, but am told that its a tricky one to fit. I'd like to get this on the 606 last in burnt pine.

or this one, although not quite as pretty

These shoes are very interesting? Where did you get them? Were they a custom order? I think they are absolutely stunning.

I believe you read his question wrong - what color, not model. If I were to take a stab, I would say vintage rioja.

I felt the same. I have always been disapointed that G&G don't have a traditional adelaide. I had dismissed the Hayes as an alternative until I discussed matters further with TG and decided to give it a go... Soft square in Rosewood without a heel counter and without a medallion.

Although I remain pleased with my decision, it hasn't satisfied my desire for a traditional adelaide and so the Canterbury (or possibly the Walcot) remain high on my wish list.

Walcot is sensational. I have it both in edawardian and olive antique on the 888.

As previously discussed, I am also keen on the idea of a pair of EGs in olive and until funds got side tracked on a couple of G&G's, I was all set for the Walcot in olive on the 606.

Now I'm ready to place the order and someone posted a picture of the Shannon 2 balmoral boot and now I don't know whether I would prefer the boot in olive (assuming I can loose the metal lace holes [sorry I don't know the correct term] and preferably the top part of the boot in reverse calf). The Walcot / Canterbury could then be had in Chestnut instead.

Any thoughts?

P.S. I'd love to see the Walcot in olive in you have any pics.

Well, two very different options. Shannon II is a spectacular boot and mixing with reverse calf is a nice thought. If you are going MTO, go for the Shannon II as you will never find it in that configuartion on a retailer's shelf.

Actually, I'm pretty sure that even Shannon I is not stocked but must always be done as a special order. Not a lot of demand for it, understandably. The other boot (Galway?) is however made RTW.

Shannon I is always MTO.
