Galway and Dovers, done.

Piccadilly, yesterday found an interesting business in dark oak, but the fact that I have a beautifil pair of full strap loafer from carmina is pushing me back.

Galway & Dover aside, I would also include the Westminster and the Silverstone into EG essential collection. Possibly the Harrogate as well... smile.gif

Used to hate split toe shoes, then I saw the Dover.. A simply stunning shoe. It's definitely top of my to buy list.

 

My thoughts exactly.

The big three. IMO anyway!

In addition, I would think one pair of loafers should be added to the mix before a double monk or multiple boots. Which one to select is your call. I like the Bamford, Piccadilly, Buxton, and Harrow.

Also, I see you chose the Inverness. I might swap that for the Malvern, depending on the leather/color chosen.

Berkeley 202 FTW!

This could be a starting point for an interesting (and helpful) discussion. Apology if it has been raised before.

If you could only own one pair from each maker, what would that be, and how your collection would look like?

We should seriously start a GMTO-thread for F-width-footed people. In 202 and 64 I can take E width, but for the sharper lasts I require F.

Not very keen on the Dover atm tho peepwall[1].gif

If you want stock model you don't need to gmto, just get 2 other people to order with you (I don't beleive it has to be same wdith) and then you can place order

Correct, as long as there are three orders you can order a different width.

I have not - but I have thought about it.

Kick ass! However, most of what I desire is MTO nowadays blush.gif But really nice to know nevertheless...

I had a tailor stitch the inside of the pull tab to the back of the boot, so the pull tab is no longer "hanging loose," yet still maintains its functionality.  The tailor laid a single thick stitch through the inside part of the pull tab loop, if you will, and it works and looks great.
