Thanks for that reply, ddd. How about functionality? I wear most of my boots to work in a business casual setting with mostly wool trousers and sometimes chinos. I wear all my boots with denim. The Galway can pull off this double duty, right? Basically I need to be able to wear them casually or it isn't worth the investment to me. Any other Galway owners want to weigh in?
The Galway is a field boot. However, some of the iterations are poncified (cf. CT Brummie) so they can be worn in town and some are suited just for semi-dress wear.
If you don't get the 64 lasted Ridgeway make-up, then most, if not all, of the others can be worn as you describe.
