Seconded. Incredible collection of info in that post.

@VegTan, I have a pair of boots made of Beva leather in the same pattern as that pair pictured. Mine carry the CC41 utility stamp so can be dated to around 1941 to 1948 which is when, I think, they dropped using the stamp on clothing.

If anything, the Beva leather (pronounced, presumably, 'beaver' due to the animal appearing on the Beva-branded pull tabs) is even thicker than zug.

1) prefer double dainite soles
2) prefer 82 last in an E width (though I wouldn't rule out another last if I could arrive at a point of reasonable reassurance as to likely fit. I know a 9E 82 will work 100%).
3) any lind of shearling lining is a deal-breaker. I have very warm feet. ;-)

Also - is this something you are contemplating running on your own, or through a vendor?

 

Not sure yet, but possibly through Skoak once we have sorted all the details out. Btw, EG will only do Veldtschoen on the 64 last, so that leaves no room to discuss the last if it's going to be Veldtschoen – and it is ;)

Skoak would definitely work for me. Understood re. last. Keep me posted.

Otherwise, it could be the same: 64 last, medway sole, possible shearling lined shaft, likely E fitting. What do interested parties think? Please advise and PM, if you think these details attractive and suitable. Cheers.

I would be interested in all leather makeup. Also if we go with suede option I am not interested in anything exotic such as blue or red suede.

Agreed. I think some shade of brown would be most suitable and add a distinct touch to a rough out country boot without looking out of place. But what shade to choose is quite another question, and I hope to have some swatches sent over so the choice will be easier. I reckon the heather gorse is quite a special colour, so I thinks it's crucial to choose the right shade of suede if it shall work out...

I just started a project to photograph and upload the current EG swatch books. Most are done but I need to get my web guy to make a good table for them, this might take a while.

Just PM me if there are any special types of leathers you are interested in. I just spotted some really nice reindeer swatches by the way.

Agreed, great boots Frank! I especially like seeing these made up in one colour only, I think many times people have a tendency to go a bit too crazy mixing suede and leather. A boot in all Dark Oak is timeless and classic!
