Fabulous choice, Congrats!!!

 

You did it right, however the more you post will coax you to take better pictures. Mostly you just have to work on taking them in better lighting.

Me too, and it makes it sound more than it may actually be. LOL

 

Actually I have 2 Chelseas as well, but I do find its good to have a bit of variety as well. After all there are so many great EG models.

The Doak chelsea was my first EG followed by the hazel dover and Doak wcc galway.

I have two chelsea's myself and 2 (soon to be effective dovers) and 2 galways....and you may want to get out now.

Even a dumb old shoe guy such as myself is smart enough to realize a real good thing when it exists. LOL​

I am wingtip guy as well. Have a DOAK malvern but ended up ordering inverness MTO on 202 last in couple of different colors. Somewhat different with broguing done on one piece of leather. Need something "sleeker" for nightshade, esp on 202 last

Does not count. So many different permutations of the galway thats essentially a different shoe when you buy it.

Thats the biggest issue with them, at least with the factory. They dont communicate well and take their time responding. Their store in London is excellent in responding but the factory is another thing all together. You need to have tenacious retail person to keep being persistent with them.

Doak is my favorite as well, followed by burnt pine. It is a recurring theme.

You like to buy them in pairs? I find myself doing that withouy thinkinh. You can never get out, there is always another model you just "need" to have

Variety is good, but at the end of the day you end up wearing the shoes you like the most more often (for me usually a wingtip of some short), so having them in various shades works out well

But even when it comes to wingtips alone they have enough models that having a few different ones cant hurt. The Malvern, the Inverness, the Derwent, the Falkirk, and the Hutton so far are the only ones I own. Heck they have quite a few more than that I wouldn't mind owning. So even though I own but just a few of some the same models having a bit of variety is pretty nice as well with regards to models, leathers, and colors.

Agreed. I did not mean get the same shoe over and over. What i do is get a variety of them but the ones that i like i usually get in more than one color. I.e. one falkirk in edwardian, then inverness in nighshade and burnt pine. I have not ordered the derwent yet, but i will change things up and prob get the cottesbrook and/or wells
