This is, IMO, the only Galway make-up that gives his Dark Oak brother a run for his money. And I dare say this make-up beats out said brother, if only by a few inches. Bronze Antique is a wonderfully rich, very, very dark brown.

 

It's a lovely boot, but the non-64 lasted Galways can hardly be described as a 'country boot' as per both LSH and Leffot...they're closer to dress shoes than a tramping boot, IMHO.

I certainly consider it a dress boot, but then again that's one of the reasons why I like it.

Galways are on the dressier side of casual for me, but not a dress boot.  Not that anything turns on the label - it's a terrific boot.  Love my pair.

Have no problems with my midnight blue / navy suede Galways - although I have yet to wear them with a suit.

I don't have problems with my dark oak / walnut country calf either.  I just wouldn't likely pair them with a suit. Sport coat, yes.  That's why I put them on the dressy end of casual, as opposed to seeing them as a pure dress boot.  Two tones, two textures, plus derby closure take it out of the pure dress category in my estimation.  But it also makes for a more versatile boot.

 

 

 

They are dressier than, say, my AE Bayfields - which go hiking, hunting and get muddy - but still short of what I see as a dress boot:

 

 

Even with the speed hooks, the Carminas below are what I think of as  dress boot.

 

 

I don't claim to have ownership of the term, but I hope that explains where I'm coming from. Opinions may differ.

Great with country (tweed) suit. Not so much with business suit.

Like I said before, and I'll say it again.

 

Sure like that Blue on Blue.

 

Patek and EG, what a combo.
