Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy - Page 1853

post #27781 of 29003

Still loving these boots - though I have to say I have found them to be a bit more susceptible to scuffs than regular calf and certainlyy moreso than grain.  Not a real issue though - I have boots I can beat hard on.  And that Utah leather is so soft, supple and comfortable.

Went to Cambridge UK fro training last week and decided the price at the EG Jermyn Street store were too good to pass up. Received very good service there, especially since I arrived a little before closing. They threw in some polish and extra laces. Nice people. Then had a proper gin & tonic at The Red Lion pub with a friend.

Hey Rog, how do you find the water resistance of the Utah vs. CC / grain?  I'm considering another Galway order for the winter and wondering which would hold up better to snow/slush.

It's been a fairly dry summer and they haven't been exposed to much rain, but my impression is that grain would perform much better in harsh weather. And Zug would be one level up from grain. My overall fave choice for foul - weather wear is CXL, but I've never seen a Galway in that material.

Edit - I misread - you are comparing CC uppers to Utah - probably a push there.

Such great color in your pair!  Well done & agree that Utah calf is just wonderful leather

The faux cap looks to come from the Inverness and furthermore they left off the medallion, and not from the Southwold. The Southwold has a real layered cap and the shape of the cap and broguing are quite different.
Here is a pic of a pair of Southwolds.

Details aside, they look great, wear them well.

Thanks for the clarification @michaelvl!  I was just going by the title supplied by the seller, but you're right and the faux cap looks more like the Inverness without medallion. :)
