That's the problem with shearling for me.  The weather here is like the Sonoran desert.

Just bought a pair of Marlow (RL) PTBs. New to C&J, this is my first pair. So excited waiting for them to arrive.

AS Kelso's arrived. They seem really nice, but I have no other Zug to compare to. Pics (along with thickness of Zug compared to a quarter) below.

A quarter is 1.75mm, and by using calipers I (fairly accurately) estimate the Zug to be 3mm.

Thanks for posting. The look very nice, Congrats!!!

 

Appears to be a different shade than the EG Galways in Zug. But then again most of the first to post capture a reddish tint which was not there in real life. Does seem fairly thick, in retrospect do you think the lining is a bit much even though you didn't have a choice in the matter? Hard to tell, but are these a half or full bellows tongue?

These are a great pair of boots. Congratulations. The quality of Zug used nowadays by Alfred Sargent is certainly high standard in terms of durabilty and resistance. Nevertheless, when comparing them with Martin's Zug used for many years by Lotus, Tecnic, George Webb and some other manufacturers who used to specialize in Veldtschoen welt, I must say it is less aesthetic. The Zug used on Kelsos has a sort of matte finish that seems almost like synthetic leather, while vintage Martin's Zug looks like grained calf with supurb transparancies. I wouldn't know if that's due to age or simply better leathers.

Wow. I'd be quite happy with those Zugs.

Considering they cost a fraction of EG's Zugs (and were actually obtainable), I think I'll be keeping 'em nod[1].gif

These are half bellows. Haven't given the lining much thought.
