    When it comes to brown I love Saphir's Havana....havent been able to place it yet. It looks darker/richer than medium brown. Applied them on some mid brown derbies and got a very satisfying dark chocolate brown. Ca anyone characterise it better?

    I'd probably be in for that. Love the look of the dark oak/mink suede upper! Doubtful about burgundy, dunno what colour nightshade is.

    Keen,

    The nightshade is the darker shade of burgundy.

    On the other note

    I am planning on organizing Galway group MTO on following specs

    Last 202 or 64
    Color : Mahogany country calf
    Sole : Ridgeway with the storm welt.

    Any interest?

    Thanks.

    Hmm, maybe if the other one falls thru. But I'm pretty set on the dark oak/mink calf model. I might do a personal MTO if no one else does it.

    I'd be in on this. 888 or 82 last would be my preference.

    How does the 64 fit in comparison to the 202 and does it come in a G width?

    Sounds interesting, depends on the final price. Both lasts are good for me.
    I'm in the market or the shearling lining Galways, but could jump on your train as well.

    PS Last group order via Leaves had very attractive price.

    Does anyone have experience with both Hazel and Burnt Pine? I'm thinking about getting a few Dovers MTO, and two of the colors I'm interested in are these. I have a Burnt Pine Oundle, and a swatch of Hazel here. The colors seem awfully close, possibly too close to justify two MTOs. Is anyone able to comment from first hand experiences?

    Note, online photos of both colors, I find, are too unreliable, so first hand testimonies would be much appreciated.

    Mahogany country calf on both upper and lower? I like the Galway with two different types of leather (e.g., suede and calf or country calf and calf).

    I think both fit the same. A few pages back SF member posted that he takes same size in 64 and other lasts.

    Yes this would be a single color for both upper and lower.

    Different Lasts affect different people with different feet differently.[​IMG]

    For instance, I wear the same size when wearing three different C&J Lasts.

    However I've seen others who will adjust by a half size or so when using these same Lasts.

    I would imagine this would be true for Edward Green as well.

    The different Lasts are shaped differently and it just depends on ones feet in regards to how a certain Last will work.

    I agree and in general MTO should be only for people who are absolutely sure of their shoe size but we cannot stop members from taking a chance.

    hmm, I'll see if I can make sure but put me down as interested party.

    Yeah but it's usually better to take these chances with RTW. This way you can work out the details and return them without penalty if necessary.

    However good luck with the MTO, I'm a BIG FAN of the Galway.

    I found a vintage pair of Edward Green wingtips this morning at a local thrift store.

    These are easily the coolest shoes I've yet come across. They are from 1946, and are in passable shape given the age. After I've run a few more layers of leather conditioner through them, I'll polish them to see what they look like cleaned up. I'm completely stoked to try these out, as I've been wanting a good pair of shoes. I don't need a brand new pair given the casualness of my workplace.

    If there are any experts on vintage models, feel free to advise me on what I have. They are 9 1/2E, 202 last, stamped 19463.

    Any thoughts from the members here on the EG Midford vs Berkeley? I am looking to add one of these pairs in dark oak to complement a pair of black Chelseas, but I'm on the fence on which way to go. I'm leaning toward the Midford, which is the stitched brogue cap toe, but I think the Berkeley may be the safer choice.
