Very nice Namor, Luv those boots.

 

Congrats

 

Those shoes look real beefy as well.

 

 

Drat, now I can't wait to get the Rosewood CC Veldtschoen I ordered from Skoak

It does but it can lighten up over the years. I saw a pair of EG shoes at display at Saks in NY that at moment resembled Almond CC but they turned out to be Rosewood CC shoes, they must have lighten under the contact artificial light over the years.

Thanks dddres, and I really agree. When spending such a huge amount on a pair of boots, the surcharge for getting exactly what you want seems but a fraction of the price. (or at least that's what I'm telling myself). But next time you guys owe me one, so you gotta back me up on the Alderley in Edwardian so I can at least save that MTO fee  :stirpot:


The way I figure it:

 

If I'm going to pay for it, I'm going to get what I want. If I'm not going to get what I want, then I wont get it.

 

If I end up settling for less, then I'll generally end up coming back and getting what I wanted later on anyway, and then I will have spent more than I originally intended in the first place anyhow.

 

@SKM I didn't realize this whole zug thing was initially your idea, and for that I feel a bit guilty that your MTO didn't win. But thank you for kicking this whole thing off. I certainly appreciate the concept, and thank you for all your efforts sir.

I like this shoe, if it is ever possible to have a GMTO for this re-run. I will definitely be in, provided that storm welt & commando / danite sole are used.

There is a shoe like that in the current Edward Green catalog, model Dundee in Rosewood CC. Check with EG stores or with Leaves he might be able to pull one from EG factory without MTO fee.

But the default setting is in rosewood, not almond

 

And they lack the perforated cap toe:confused:

Hmmm, factory sale at EG sounds pretty awesome. If anyone would be willing to proxy a pair to Sweden, please drop me a PM. :slayer:

 

Cheers.

For example if they are making Galways expect the odd mistake to end up in the FS. So it depends what they are running etc. What I saw in the two sizes I was looking at was loafers in suede and blue calf. spectators very few boots and suede brogues . Oxfords were bloated and round toed, not my thing.

Any trip down you do let me know and I can either help arrange a trip round them all and perhaps share a sherry. (extra dry of course) nod[1].gif

All too true.

No need to feel guilty about anything, and we all got what we wanted in the end, right? I'm just thrilled, amazed and very pleased that it got such a huge amount of attention. Now I just hope the next six months passes very quickly, ha!

Btw gent, I would like to ask a sizing advice regarding the 64 last for the zuglets. I have quite wide feet with high instep, but I can normally squeeze down in the 202E last, and after they're broken in they feel very comfortable. Would you go with the same width in the 64, given you would now and then wear thick socks in your boots (only slightly thicker, not bulging home knitted ones). As you know, my version will be shearling lined, but I guess it shouldn't play a role given that it's only in the shaft and that it's a brogue boot.

 

Thanks in advance!

I would if I could, I'm afraid this factory sale comes too early for me, I'm in a particularly sticky part of my current job and can't get the time away to visit the factory.

I hope someone else is able to proxy for you, I'd like to grovel to the collected members of SF regarding a proxy as well. I'm in the UK so no expensive deliveries!

Hi SKM, I would advice you go with F width, particularly if you want to ware thick socks.

My Galyway on 64 last is shorter than those on 82 last (all E width), and has quite lower vamp.

How would you say width compares?
