Love both the Nevis and G&G Thorpe (I have a pair in Oak Pigskin and wear it all the time off work).

Agreed. Love it.

There is not a sentence ever written about EG in which someone forget's to mention about...the pig bristles.

Last time I was there the Galway (and other boots) were listed at £770. I suspect there will be a slight upcharge for the Nevis due to the hand sewn apron, in the same way that there is an upcharge on the Dover with respect to the standard EG shoe line.

If you divide the whole-cut into a 3/4 and 1/4 cut, you can lay the pattern pieces much closer together; think of (sexual) positions like 'tea-spoons' or '69'. As a result of this manipulation, you have less waste.
Oops, I hope I haven't disillusioned one or the other. But take heart, this way of penny-pinching was much more prevalent in the olden days, although it is still going on sometimes.

Interesting info, as always, Bengal-Stripe. Many thanks.

Hazel perhaps? If you Google Image Edward Green Hazel I'm sure some things will pop up. That being said, I think Dark Oak reigns supreme.

If I remember correctly G&G "Espresso" is an aniline coloured mat. Both Hazel and Dark Oak are vintaged. Don't worry, Adam will help ya! We even got a 9.5 last 83 for you to try out...

Dark Oak is a great classic color for shoes.

+1. Dark oak works with a lot of outfits.

Is the Dark Oak color, consistent?
I've noticed some pairs a lot lighter than others.
My previous Malverns and Chelseas were a lot darker than the Sandringhams I have now..

It is not. I have about 5-6 pairs in dark oak and they differ. I like that they have slightly different shades.

From what I understand, if you do a MTO you can request a dark, medium or light shade of Dark Oak.
