Shot you a PM.

funny how things work. I just bought a pair of dark oak Grants earlier in the day. I was planning to order some EG trees last night and came upon these. I actually wanted these for the lasted trees that came with them since there they don't make them any longer. I figured I could unload these if the recraft cost was ridiculously high.
 

 

Thanks for buying and I hope you will love them! 

 

Only have UK 8.5 9.5 10 and 10.5 left shoot me a pm if interested.

And yet the EG whiskey I see from EG and Unipair looks light and flawless.

When will someone order a whiskey cordovan Galway?

Quick question for my EG owners


Is the mahogany country calf a closer match to dark oak or burgundy antique in person?

I am pondering a MTO Shannon in dark oak with a country calf upper. However, I desire to have very little/ to no contrast in color between the grain upper and calf lower portion. Ideally I would like to have a perfect match in the two calf textures in dark oak. In contrast to my liking, the walnut calf seems to be much darker than the dark oak calf color in many pictures that I have seen (example Galway).

It's not as red as burgundy antique, but it's redder than dark oak. If you want the county grain equivalent of dark oak, get walnut country calf. It's not a perfect match, depending on the shade of dark oak (which has varied a little over the years), but it's closer than mahogany.

Hi Akeem,

 

Thanks for PM re quoted cost.

 

If you haven't seen it then here are three articles from Simon Compton at Styleforum.co.uk that go into great detail (well, except for part 3 that is a brief follow-up report) about his visit to the factory to see his Oundles (but not TD I think) having a recraft. The links to the three part article are here...

 

Part 1 - https://www.permanentstyle.com/2010/05/how-great-things-age-edward-green-1.html

Part 2 - https://www.permanentstyle.com/2010/05/how-great-things-age-edward-green-2.html

Part 3 - https://www.permanentstyle.com/2010/05/how-great-things-age-edward-green-3.html

 

Be careful if you're squeamish, there are some pretty explicit photos of nice shoes being pried apart with pliers and knives!

 

Also note that apparently (according to part 1) they try to preserve the insole for reasons mentioned in the article so if you go this route it might be as well to explicitly request that they replace it.

So let me ask, is it crazy to buy a second pair of the same shoe? Admittedly it is an EG limited edition in crup.... Have I gone completely crazy or am I behaving as a rational shoe guy? puzzled.gif
post #27853 of 29009

Nope totally normal especially since the exchange is cheaper now?

post #27854 of 29009
Well if it makes you feel any better I have seven pairs in the same model. I think a doubles are a good start. smile.gif

I second this. Delighted owner of 3 pairs of dovers, 2 chelseas, and 2 galways :slayer:
