It is incredible in person.  Only seven pairs will be made - and at this point all have been spoken for.  Not bad for a boot that costs USD2,500 retail.

They made a good call using utah for the shaft, it'll avoid those unsightly creases you get with shell which tend to be quite severe on boot shafts.

All seven are spoken for?? Good. Back to watches!

It's my understanding the reason EG didn't make a Galway in cordovan was because they didn't think the cordovan was sturdy enough for the shaft.​

 

 

Heck not bad, that's what a Shell St Crispin PC Boot cost.

 

 

Anyway, thanks for posting that 16610. LOL

They wouldn't do the Galway in shell cause they couldn't do it with the bellows tongue. Maybe that boot isn't a bellows tongue, they figured it out or they are only being inconvenienced for those seven pairs.

I thought for sure it was the shaft, but maybe I was wrong.

I was told that by the EG rep at the last trunk show.

Thanks, so did you make this one or are you planning to go later?

Sorry, obligatory watch pic with boot theme. LOL

Hmmm.  Trying to decide on a watch.  

 

A)

 

 

 

 

or B)

 

 

I prefer the strap on A, but that I can order it for B.  I prefer the limited editionness if you will of A.  I prefer the sword hands of B and the "REVERSO" font and font size of B.  B saves me about $2500, but resale isn't as lucrative, though I am thinking I wouldn't resale for a few decades.

 

I like the fauxtina look and want a Reverso, but it's a tough choice.

This in no way helps but they're both gorgeous. For me, brown strap is a must though.

Personally I'd go for B – its black strap is much more in keeping with the Reverso's dressy nature. Not to say that Reversos can't be dressed down, but A's strap comes across as slightly too rustic for the watch by virtue of its stitching. I prefer B's hands and font too.

B. You can always throw a brown strap on it. I prefer the sword hands.
