I think the only EG/GG 6.5's I have are the same ones you have. Wigmore, Inverness, Shannon, and Galway.

Unfortunately, even with the 11 shoes in route I have holes. I should have been more balanced in my selection. I just want simple things now like an Mink Suede Chukka, a medium brown double monk, and a medium brown loafer.

I'm fast becoming a fan of split-toes. Too bad they didn't have any in the store when I was there

So you really have yet to receive much since the first of the year?

 

I do wonder how much of a backlog this first part of year may have created if any?

 

I guess we will find out.

 

But whatever it is you better not get any of your this year orders from EG before I get my Falkirks from last October.:brick:

The balance issue tends to happen more I think when you buy things in bulk.

But on the much brighter side your certainly going to get a whole lot more for a whole lot less than you'll ever be able to anywhere again. Sales notwithstanding, besides sales don't always provide you a chance to get your size in all cases.

Well I think my Shannon's took 7 months but I ordered them in 2014. I only received those and my rothschilds this year from eg gg. Crazy you haven't gotten your falkriks. Anything is better than not receiving them though. Been two years for my leather jackets.

7 months is a fairly long wait but I don't think that is that uncommon for EG. I know one of my Galways took 8 months but there was supposedly a mix up at the factory and I think I received those in 2013. My Falkirks were rejected once and are being remade but it will be nine months on the 24th of this month.

I assume you got those in 6F? Yeah, when I was heavier I needed wide width and it was a pain to get shoes; I'm fortunate to fit into E widths now.

I'm still waiting on a couple of pairs as well.

 

A general question, where do NSTs fall on the casual vs dress spectrum?

I'd say pretty casual. About like a longwing.

+ 1 very casual

I disagree. I think it is dependent on last, style, etc. even within one maker there can be differences. For instance an Alden NST can be casual on a wider last with a heavier stitching but this v tip is dressier than an lwb to me

I agree with @rydenfan, it depends on a number of factors. I have a pair of hand sewn split toes in a corrected grain and while they are more casual than an oxford, because they are on a sleek last they dress up well with a suit—admittedly better than I anticipated.
