Here's a few pictures of Loden from EG. Lighting really plays a big part in regards to how green it looks.

Yes, I've often thought of getting a pair of Galways in a mixture of Calf and Loden suede.

Thanks for the side-by-side shots of the Carmina suede's. 

 

Were there any folks who missed out on the Polo Adelaides who might be interested in a make-up like that or in the semi-brogue style? Rain last?

 

Just gauging interest.

Thank you that's what I thought I got the same shoes & picked up Jose a bank shoe trees. Was wondering what size shoe tree did you go with because it's Detroit last. I normally take 8.5 carmina went to 8Uk with them and ended up getting Small size 8 wide width.

I have 7.5UK and used small JAB shoe trees. I use the same tree even for 8UK Robert.

How's the Carmina Rain vs GG MH71? Should I get the same size? I have a TG73 which is half a number bigger than what I usually wear in the Rain, but seems a bit long, yet still quite snug around my feet.

For what is worth I am US 9.5 & take 9Uk on TG73 work very well with thin dress socks. And carmina rain I go full side down to 8.5Uk. My educated guess would be try out G&G in MH71 last & go half size smaller & go from there may be TG73 last is not for you.

In general the rule is for G&G you stick to same size in all last. This is what is recommended but in reality you have to figure the size out by trying on shoes. Or if you are shopping online then it's trial & error. Hope this helps.

@Leaves  @Skoaktiebolaget 

 

Just to understand what's required, before I start a separate thread to see if people might sign on. We need 6 for GMTO from Carmina to avoid MTO up-charge? We could do the semi-brogue as well in the polo suede?

 

Cheers
