Westley Richards rosewood country calf F64 Galways, today in the snow. Love these things, they are machines and already starting to get that great look I was hoping for. Work is finance but in an old farm house, so need to have nice shoes/boots that can take a muddy/snowy/salty beating.

The chiseled toe looks great in this makeup and it has grown on me as well.

 

Yes, I hope you get the same results as well! I would expect you would have the same results as me then with the Westminister. You'll love the shoes! I went from the Allen Edmonds Mora 2.0s to these - can never look back!

^^ Westminster and Chapel, two of the best double monks out there on the market.

@wdahab those look fantastic.  Rosewood takes on such a nice look as it patinas.

 

Do others here wear their Edward Green CC with wool dress pants? @justinkapur saw your pic, looks like you're wearing blue worsteds and it's a better match than I would have thought the "country" calf would have been.

I am also wearing flannel up top and a wool tie. Felt appropriate to wear country calf in the situation. Plus it's cold and chances of being wet in the bay so I wore my bad weather shoes.

I recieved a pair of EG in Dark Oak recently, and they exhibited this cracking that you are seeing. The leather is quite dry, and the cracking gets worse very quickly with wear.

There is clearly a problem with the dark oak recently, the quality is simply not up to scratch and is far beneath that of other EG shoes I own.

 

Just wanted to update you gents on this issue :)

I got lucky and did not see this on our stocklists but I saw some posts about this issues here and brought it up to Hillary (Managing Director of EG) past Sunday when I met her.

She was very aware of it and this issues was brought attention to the finishing/polishing room and has now been rectified :)

Cheers!

Some decent sizes left on the Beaulieus. I'd be all over one of those, but someone already took the 9.5 midnight. Justin? :paranoia:
