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.

Galway heaven!

 

Will be waxing mine up very soon for the autumn, as soon as the one pair is back from the Shoe Healer having the heels sorted. All three pairs will be most definitely seeing the worst of the autumn and winter.

 

Almond country calf today, 64 e last, field boot model:
