Edward Green Appreciation: Pictures, Info, and Where to Buy - Page 397

post #5941 of 14982
It has been a good week for me. I received my Shannon's on Thursday via Unipair



Then I received my long awaited MTO from Leather Soul (thank you Oki) the Southwold in burgundy antique on the 888--my favorite last.




Pics could be better but I am not much of a photog and I wanted to share.

If this is a Galway MTO for green on green, I am afraid I misunderstood. I would prefer to go with the green and suede combination but with the suede in brown as shown in the Galway photo supplied by StevenT.

Leaves, do you have any photos of a green/green combination you could share? I'm willing to be swayed, but the brown suede lends a wonderful country look to the boot and makes it compatible with a wider variety of trousers.

I have two other pairs of Galways (midnight blue and the classic dark oak) and a pair of antique burgundy Shannons showing up in a week or so. The olive Galways would truly round out the closet.

Happy Holidays you shoemaniacs!

Shannons and Southwold looking very good!  A man of great taste.

I have to agree Noonan, I had thought we were looking at the same make up as shown in the Unipair make up and in the Galway image shown. As I mentioned earlier in the thread I love that boot! I think that the green suede shown has a bit of a Jim Carrey as the riddler feel about it so if the intention is to proceed with that bright green suede upper then please count me out

I'm open to both green suede and brown suede if it gets us the 6 needed

I am in love with the Galway you posted earlier Stevent, that's exactly the shoe I crave!

Could I trouble you guys for help sizing the Galways, which will be my first pair of EG? Pretty standard US 11D, for example, in Alden take 10.5 on the Barrie & TruBalance, 11 on Copley/Aberdeen. RL Darltons 11, Sargent for Sid Mashburn & Peal 11. I'm guessing 10.5 for the EG 82 Galways? Thanks much!

I wear the same size as you in Alden and have found I am a 10.5E in all of my EG lasts, 202, 606, 82 and 888.

Artificial lighting I'm afraid but here are my Galways with olive cords, love these boots

Oh and angle makes the cuffs look huge, 2" only!

My least favourite thing about these boots are the laces!

It appears to me the green suede and olive calf might clash.

Olive Antique Calf and Loden Suede has been a stock RTW Galway model at various times recently. I have a pair, although as yet unworn, and they seem harmonious to my eye.
