Congrats!!!!

 

 

Can't wait to see some pictures.

I asked about this in the BB thread and was told that if you order over the phone, they'll apply it to the EG shoes. Haven't tried it, but let me know if it works!

Very nice, Farhad! 64 last, I presume?

A few pictures of my newly purchased Galways on the 82 last, in dark oak and walnut country calf. Single Dainite soles and size UK 9E.

Enjoy! I am looking forward to the contributions from the rest of you guys, later this week.

[Beautiful boots hoodog , enjoy and thanks for sharing. There is only one thing I noticed on these, the colour of the dark oak is not as dark as my boots maybe it is made with a different batch of leather or the lighting but in the real also my boots are very dark.

Shoe trees are included in the Brooks Brothers prices for Edward Green shoes - that's about $130 built-in.

Thanks for the reply RogerP. It looks like they have Galways in stock too. It's the exact same make-up as Brooks Brothers.

Thanks Farhad!

 

Yes, you're right. The doak on my Galways is a bit lighter compared to some of my other shoes in doak (Inverness + Dover). However, it is just as light a shade as the doak used on my Westministers, which almost looks like burnt pine. It would seem as though doak batches differ somewhat in tone...

Just catching up on this thread and these are gorgeous, any chance of anymore pics?

I was thinking about getting a Carmina austerity brogue boot in navy shell but may switch to ordering a pair of these instead. Do EG do group MTO's and is anyone else interested?

I'll try to get better pics of the Galways. In the meantime, the Mocha Suede Banbury for Axel's:

I use BB brass knob trees for most of my shoes. I usually pick them up on one of the 40% sales.
