Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy - Page 284

post #4246 of 13171
I have two pairs of Galways on 82 (Dark Oak/calf and Midnight Blue/suede) and they both work with a suit. I have a pair of Shannon MTOs on order. Can't wait. But my fave is a balmoral in blue from G&G that absolutely kicks ass.

If/when I get the Galways, I would probably get it in dark oak/suede. I initially wanted the grain but my AS Miller has a grain shaft already.

I just think this is strange: "The shannon boot is exceptionally dressy and is arguably overkill in just about any formal situation outside of a black tie."

Cap-toes are not overly formal for most situations, and turning a cap-toe into a boot makes it less formal still.

But whatevs.

Shannon definitely looks too dressy IMO to be versatile. If its slate or something it works well but if its dark oak I really couldn't see it being worn outside of a full suit

My black/cloud fits pretty well in informal (suits) days. The midnight/twilight combo does stand out a bit but its a nice change of pace. Funny thing is that people say my tan/white spectators stand out more than my blue Shannons.

Ah yes, you see the light.

 

You may have the Islay, and you do have the AS Miller, but you still need a Galway.fight[1].gif

Agreed, the miller and Galway are far too different. They occupy separate sartorial real estate

Oh, I've always wanted a pair of Galways... Just trying to pick them up when the real estate is in a buyers market... Har Har har

I completely agree with the first sentence. But, to be fair, I find many balmoral boots too dressy to be versatile.

To each their own .....
