How many Norwegian split toes you own now?  Would be very interested to see the comparison between your Saint Crispins MTO, Edward Green, and John Lobb St James NSTs!!!

jerry, you lucky man, you. The pair even has a sexy back -- not a common sight with boots.

Honestly, I probably have too many, mainly Dovers. At least this is what my wife says. I'll post a pic this weekend. So far the StCs are my favorite, but the welting makes them less versatile so they get less wear.

Anyone have the Warwick boot on the 606? If yes, sizing advice relative to 606 shoe models? Or relative to lasts 202 and 82? Thanks Gents.

Well, asking if the boots are EGs on the EG thread is pretty bad shog[1].gif

The most obvious answer I think would be any shade of grey, but I also think they would pair nicely with browns as well. I have a pair of Camel Harris Tweed trousers that they would look stellar with.

We are putting together a MTO for navy Galways with shearling lining. PM me if you are interested.

So fellow EG enthusiasts, I am trying to put together a shearling-lined Galway MTO and present it to Leaves for potential delivery in the fall. We already have 3 confirmed forum members, so we only need 3 more. Please PM if you are interested. Specs are as follows (let me know if I missed anything):

82 Last 64 last
Galway Shearling Lined Boot
Midnight calf lower
Navy suede Upper
360 degree flat welt
Matching eyelets and speedhooks
dark brown welt and edge trim
Dark Brown Dainite sole

Here is a great example of how gorgeous this boot is:


And the shearling lining looks as follows:

Recently acquired a vintage pair of Sandringhams in almond country calf.  They're around 20-25 years old (EG couldn't locate a record for my pair when I contacted them).  After seeing the amazing things some members are able to do with a little polish and elbow grease to develop patinas on their shoes, I thought 'How hard could it be?', and decided to go nuts with some polishes on the EGs.  Boy, was that stupid!

 

A couple before pics:

 

 

 

After saddle soap, conditioner, a coat of meltonian london tan, and four coats of saphir mahogany; I am left with

 

 

 

Was trying for these: http://leffot.com/shop/edward-green-bauxite-sandringham/ while paying 1/3 the price.  Didn't quite get there (the london tan polish was a poor choice), but I'm still pretty pleased with the results.  The darker colour hides the marks on the leather near the welt pretty well, and they are more rose-hued (what I was going for) than can be seen in the photos.

for those of you that own the EG Beaulieu in dark oak, what color polish do you use? I've looked at the various Saphir offerings and nothing seems to be a close match to dark oak. Would using a neutral polish be safe? Also, do you use a wax polishh or cream polish?

I use saphir dark brown (no 5). Cream first, then polish.

For dark oak I typically use neutral cream, then neutral polish.
