Can I inquire as to the details on the duffle bag. I am in the market, considering a filson.

You bet.  It was a gift from my parents and it's from the very not StyleForum approved Cole Haan.  But the leather is nice and it can take a beating, which is the most important thing to me.

Never underestimate the power of a green Dover

I spend way too high a proportion of my income on shoes. Fml.

Just wondering if anyone has seen this happen on pairs they have and if it's something maybe I should address now while they are new.

So just an update on the great service from Leatherfoot and EG on this repair. I emailed about the split toe opening up and LF said EG asked to have them shipped back to them to take a look at in person. I just received my Dovers back today as good as new! (though still always blown away that this color is Dark Oak haha)

 

Can't wait to get them back on my feet tomorrow.

For the EG description of Delapre/Utah leather, does anybody know what this actually means? I am not aware of a mimosa that my wife would not order with her brunch...

"Because it’s vegetable re-tanned in chestnut, quebracho and mimosa, it continues to develop its own distinct patina over time. Only one in ten skins can be selected for Delapré as it demands a skin that is both thick and perfect."

Edit: ok so they're all trees

Vegetable tanned leather is tanned in a 'liquor' made from water and tree bark (originally) or a bark extract containing high levels of tannins. The dissolved tannins cause the collagen fibers in the leather to cross-link, making the hide more or less impervious to putrefaction (i.e. rotting). Depending on the indigenous trees that predominated, traditional tanning centers used different types of trees for their tanning liquors. To generalize, English tanners (e.g. G&FG Baker) used oak bark, Spanish the quebracho, Italians the chestnut. Different tanning liquors lead to differing characteristics in the finished leather.

Very helpful, thanks.  I'd read some descriptions of the process before but with a lot of jargon and complexity that confused me.  This was a great summary.

Would someone mind posting images comparing the dark oak and antique bronze? I m considering ordering a pair of galways but am having trouble deciding between dark oak with black Utah shaft or antique bronze with black Utah shaft. Suggestions and advice are welcome.

Google each of these and look up the resulting "images", 

 

https://www.google.com/search?q=galway+edward+green+bronze&espv=2&biw=2133&bih=1056&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwivociAkoLLAhVU7GMKHTo5AQUQsAQIKw&dpr=0.9

 

Plus, Dark oak does vary a lot, I would lean towards been darker than what you might readily find in pics

Hey

Thanks for writing. I already did that and noticed a lot of variation based on the lighting and not many pictures of the bronze out there tbh. Therefore I wanted to see them compared in the same light.

Gotcha, someone out there may have both but dunno...

 

I've found that Bronze is quite hard to capture on photos.
