I was just using the picture to show the shape of the bottom part of the brogue facing, where the curve is nicely rounded.  I don't really care for the swoosh.  I would also like the brogue to include pinking/serrated edge. 

 

Anyway, to the MTO guys, the 2nd from the left that you guys chose

 

is the same as this

 

Can I persuade you guys to consider the 3rd from the left, which is more of a chestnut color?

Guys, it's going to be tough to please everyone on this MTO it seems. What do you guys think of:
  • Model 3200 (I'll ask Bonafé to make it with a peaked heel counter like on the G&G St.James II)
  • No cap, but with medallion
  • 946 chiselled last
  • Vitello Giamaica


Model 3200:


946 last:
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 100

Vitello Giamaica:
CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 100

U-Wing Boot. any interest in getting this boot made up? it sounds like the outsole is the only outstanding detail. just post what you want the outsole to be and the majority wins.

i want single dainite

j. lee, you want the york?

m6, you expressed interest in a single leather?

If york would cause any structural issues, then I'd opt for dainite if we're doing single. If double soles, then one piece leather with a piece dainite. As long as I don't need to fuss with getting toe taps installed, I'm happy.

DpprDr you have some of the best EG's I have seen. It would have been nice to know that I share a pair of boots by the EG man himself

I'm all for a new Galway GMTO. I was hoping someone would get the ball rolling on this. Only problem is that there are sooooo many nice combinations it's hard to chose one and stick with it.

Edwardian/Grain?


DOAK/Walnut Grain re-run?


Cloud/Black Suede?


Rosewood Country Calf?


Almond Country Calf?
