Yes, this looks quite a bit more hearty or sturdy.
However since I have plenty of those kind of boots, I rather like it more on the sleeker 82 Last.
Remember just because you have an Islay, one can also enjoy a Galway.

Edward Green Twill and Calf
Some say suede is more formal and some say twill is. Both are done well by EG.
I'd have to agree with this.
Both wingtips look great, but in this case my preference would be the pair in blue.
But that's probably because I already have a few spectators in brown already.
Are there any advantages or disadvantages to twill versus suede, or is it strictly a matter aesthetics?
