Very nice, wouldn't mind owning a pair myself.

Just curious on how E.G.'s in shell crease. I have never owned a pair of shoes in shell cordovan, but have seen allot of Aldens in shell on this forum, they seem to crease pretty heavily across the vamp. Can any one chime in as to how E.G.'s in shell hold up against creases vs calf.

IMO creases are near impossible to predict. As mentioned earlier in the thread both alden and eg among others source from horween. The quality in theory should be the same. Really depends on your gate, how the last fits your foot, and general care.

EG creases subtly when fitted properly. They look more like smooth little speed bumps then deep wavvy ripples. IME, the aldens that did crease heavily did so because of a poor fit.

It does seem like the EGs cordovan leather although made by Horween is a bit different than my Aldens or my Crockett and Jones Marlows.

Thank you! They're three out of the four stock veldtschoen models. The missing one is the shearling-lined rosewood country calf model.

So do you think you will eventually purchase this one as well?

Thank you sir.

 

Given a number of your choices, I consider that a huge compliment.

Just another passion of mine.

 

I have a taste for quality and craftsmanship, and this just happens to take a different form.

damnit, that is fantastic. about time.

as an aside, BB sizing is trash. click on the sizing guide and youll find even more useless information. For reference, the size listed on the site is UK size plus 1/2?

So Brooks Bros is now selling the Galway.

 

 

But get the price, it appears they are selling this at a huge premium. $1560???

"dddrees: It does seem like the EGs cordovan leather although made by Horween is a bit different than my Aldens or my Crockett and Jones Marlows."

It will also depend on how each company finishes its shell. Shell cordovan, whether from Alden, C&J, AE, Carmina, or EG, will be at least slightly different in its final presentation, with a range from shiniest (Alden) to damn near opaque (AE's "old" shell, or Carmina). For example, Alden's color 8 (dark burgundy) is quite different than burgundy shell from AE or C&J. There is also a difference in moisture, with C&J being more dry than, say, Alden. Carmina's shell is easily the driest of the bunch.
