@Staffer18283 enjoy, did the best as I could G&G TG73 VS EG 890 last biggrin.gif
post #22954 of 28910

Superb! Much appreciated!

 

Similar profile but the last pic shows that the TG73 is more "sleeker" with the vamp sitting much closer to the sole.

Dear EG aficionados ,

I would like to request your opinion on the (unidentifiable) model below I recieved today.
I am
Lead to believe it's a non picked up MTO.

202
E width
Brown Utah
Double leather tapered to single with metal toe taps.

Would these be keepers for you?
What would you wear it with.

Here a pic comparing walnut cc vs brown Utah (I was thinking the difference would be more noticeable in regards to texture)


For reference My Derby collection consists of:
Carmina full brogue forest
Eg Dover tobacco 202
Eg Dover doak 606
Incoming:
eg Cardiff numteg 202
Vass budapester antique cognac shell

Many thanks for your thoughts

^ That's quite the derby selection, but the fit looks good and the utah could be worn more casually (and handle some weather).

I think it really depends on what your goals are. If you are trying to fill a gap in your EG blucher collection and your budget or closet space is limited, I'd honestly look elsewhere. Straight tip bluchers, for me, don't get much wear. Also, if you are looking for something a bit more causal with a textured leather from EG, I'd go for something in Country Calf (Walnut isn't quite as dark as Dark Brown Utah, but I think it's close) instead of Utah, which, while I love the color and texture, I think is a bit soft of a leather if you are looking for "rugged."

Now, if you got these for a decent discount (say 25% to 40% off of retail), it would be hard to pass on them, as they do look lovely. So if you just want to add more EGs for the sake of padding your collection (and believe me, I am basically at that point), I'd definitely keep them.

thank you so much for your opinion:

in fact I got them at a certain % below retail (in the area you are mentioning).

I agree about CC, however (and sorry for having edited my post afterwards) I already have a Galway boot which is a combination between walnut + doak.

My fear is that I will not wear these enough since they are a straight tip blucher as you say and other models I have are either more formal (the Oxford ones) or more casual (full brogue ones).

however these are damn nice and I believe I am in the phase you mention of filling my collection with EG's....

Yeah I see your bind. For me, for more casual wear, I'll almost always wear a pair of Dovers or a pair of longwings or other full brogues. It's hard to imagine situations where I'd grab a pair of straight tips instead of one of those options (I've got a few options for both Dovers and full brogues). If you have a "business casual" need (at least in the USA where I am, that typically means trousers, shirt, and jacket, but no tie, and it is certainly less formal than a suit), straight tip bluchers may fit in nicely. But for me, who wears a lot of business casual, I still tend to lean towards bals/oxfords.
