OUCH, that's a tremendous line up! :drool: 

 

What do you think of the heather gorse? And is it Edwardian or Chestnut in the middle?

 

Thanks for sharing!

Thanks for the kind words!

Heather gorse is wonderful, just be prepared for a lengthy break-in period. Left to right is dark oak, coffee suede, edwardian, chestnut and heather gorse.

Great, thanks! Now we just need to know which lasts are represented :smarmy:

 

Cheers,

PS: :worship2: - I might have found myself a new screensaver there

The Chelsea on the 202 is classic, timeless.
Well played, sir.

Thanks a lot!

Nice collection of Dovers.

Very interesting, thanks a lot for your reply! Indeed, I have heard the term Heather Gorse used about EG's zug grain, so this is no doubt the stuff. Do you know which colour(s) they stock? I'm not inclined towards a top drawer per se, I'm just inclined to anything that would make EG consider doing a full shearing lining. So I thought (read: hoped) that the extra payment of the top drawer might make them consider it.

SKM, you are onto something here! I have been holding out for a Galway in Heather Gorse, and a shearling lined shaft sounds great, as do Ridgeway Soles and Veldtschoen construction.  Perhaps there are others who would consider such a group order.  PM me if you want to try to organize something.  Cheers.

This is Mahogany Country Calf on Dainite.  Indoor/Outdoor pics. We still have stock and free shipping on our EG boots.

I must admit that I am surprised that you guys do not order any boots from EG or G&G for your shop. I assume that Swedes would be interested those products.

Indeed, and for me, the additional fees are less burdensome than all the work trying to sign people up.

Same here, but I prefer the 82 last (but not a deal breaker).

You can't have Alderley on 82 only 202

I just placed order for Olive Alderley. Was debating between that and the Galway and went with a standard Galway and olive alderley with a forest suede back quarter. Upcharge pretty small to get exactly what you want and no VAT puts pricing cheaper than US rtw pricing

Olive Alderley. :slayer:  That will be fantastic.  I am looking forward to seeing pictures of how that turns out.

You make a valid point. And the fact that the first 6 have to be the same width makes the burden even greater.
