They look great! Good choice of styles and leather colors for each of the chosen styles.

Thanks everyone. ^ That'll be a great rotation Veni. If I didn't have other austerity brogues, I'd probably have a Connaught as well. Maybe I'll mix it up a bit with something like the Strand.

what do you guys think of this? I just found a few pictures of this and it is a Norwegian style storm welt by GG.

 

I have seen their normal storm welt, but have never seen one so unique before. This definitely is a clean look with the upper level welt and I guess that it is a modified version of a Norwegian welt construction. Does anyone know much about this type? 

If not I'm sure we could ask one of the guys at GG.

^My immediate reaction is that I don't find it aesthetically appeasing. Almost looks as though you have two soles one which is slightly bigger on the bottom of another.

I know what you mean! It is really "different". I actually don't mind it on a casual suede chukka like this and it probably would work with a casual boot with a hardy grain upper or Zug, but I can't see it working for anything else. It definitely is for the boot guys to consider for a real work boot!

If the top row of stitching was a different color it might be more interesting. With the dark welt, it just looks like a reverse from afar.

Non G&G related, and most of those on the EG thread have likely seen it, but 1 more is needed for a chestnut blucher re-order. Details are "spoiled" below: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I believe only 1 person in an E width is needed to get the order going:


Details:
Order via SkoAB
Sandringham
Last: 202
Chestnut antique
Double leather sole
ETA is approximately 4 months
Price is 7700SEK (which is just under $900 today)

@dddrees, are you in?

I thought that you were going to go with the GG instead.
