Strangely this retailer has not been mentioned on SF forums.

 

Anyone? Thinking of ordering a pair of Dovers from them. Thanks.

I speak frequently with one of the owners.

they seem like a shop with nice stuff and competent staff. I never bought anything from them though.

But what's the risk? if you are able to return your items you have zero risk.

Thanks for sharing your experience with them. I would be buying online and shipping to Asia and I am curious as to why they are not mentioned a bit more in this part of town or even when i google.

 

Shipping costs and tax would be a troublesome thing to go through.

I avoided returning a lower priced loafer recently (even though it is a little loose), because of these reasons.

I really wanted to make this anonymous but I think I already divulged on SF that I purchased these from skoak. I was told by Gabriel that this occurs pretty commonly when shoes are shipped internationally and he told me to polish it out. Now if these were sold in stores, they would have probably been slightly discounted. But knowing that the package traveled thousands of miles to get to me, I'm hesitant to take any real action (especially since Gabriel has done me the favor of holding my boots for me at his store for a couple weeks). Do you guys think it would be unreasonable to ask for a small reimbursement?

 

 

To be honest, I'm having a hard time even seeing the scuffs.  If it is something that can literally be buffed away, then no, I don't think it's reasonable to ask for a reimbursement.  It's not in the nature of damage or a defect.

Thanks for your input guys. I'm always pretty critical when it comes to new shoes. I knew I was being a little diva. I'm going to break them out this weekend :slayer:

Hello all. I was hoping someone could help me with a few questions about Galways.

Are they 2 warm to wear in 70 degree or higher weather?

For those with leather/suede ones is it troublesome to treat the suede? Will the suede rain treatment damage the leather if it gets on it?

You all have sown amazing shoes in this thread. Any advice would be much appreciated.

I wear my Galways straight through the summer to work. If I go "out on the town" and am wearing long pants, if wear the Galways as well. I don't see any temperature differences from shoes, personally.

If I had a suede shaft on a Galway, I would not treat it. It's far enough up on the boot where it is pretty protected.

Thanks! Good to know. Living in the sunshine (rainy) state I was concerned. Much appreciated.
