    agreed I just ordered that same make up. These caught my eye but quite often I am shackled by my conservative nature.

    So a UK 7 should be just fine?

    Probably look for a size "7/7 1/2 E82"

    The "7" is the UK size; "7 1/2" US, "E" width (some argue that "E" = US D whereas others will say "E" = US E, so this is very subjective; my experience is the former), and "82" is the last.

    Hope this helps.

    Well, hopefully E = US D because I have a slim foot -- on standard widths, I always tighten my Oxfords and Derbies as much as they can be tightened.

    I picked these up from Malford:


    10) Edward Green "Silverstone" SOLD
    Size: UK 8 / US 8.5
    Last: 888
    Fitting: UK E (Standard)
    Color: Black
    B grade?: Yes
    Fault: Unable to locate

    They are great, but a bit wide for me. I think that I need 8/8.5D

    I'd be happy to trade for a pair in my size or ship to you at my cost (i.e., what I paid malford + what it costs to ship to you).

    This is, IMO, the only Galway make-up that gives his Dark Oak brother a run for his money. And I dare say this make-up beats out said brother, if only by a few inches. Bronze Antique is a wonderfully rich, very, very dark brown.

    It's a lovely boot, but the non-64 lasted Galways can hardly be described as a 'country boot' as per both LSH and Leffot...they're closer to dress shoes than a tramping boot, IMHO.

    I certainly consider it a dress boot, but then again that's one of the reasons why I like it.

    Galways are on the dressier side of casual for me, but not a dress boot. Not that anything turns on the label - it's a terrific boot. Love my pair.

    Have no problems with my midnight blue / navy suede Galways - although I have yet to wear them with a suit.

    'Dem speed hooks for the laces sometimes catch the inner hemming of me pants though! (Pardon the pirate-like language, hanging out with the kids all day)

    I don't have problems with my dark oak / walnut country calf either. I just wouldn't likely pair them with a suit. Sport coat, yes. That's why I put them on the dressy end of casual, as opposed to seeing them as a pure dress boot. Two tones, two textures, plus derby closure take it out of the pure dress category in my estimation. But it also makes for a more versatile boot.

    They are dressier than, say, my AE Bayfields - which go hiking, hunting and get muddy - but still short of what I see as a dress boot:

    Even with the speed hooks, the Carminas below are what I think of as dress boot.

    I don't claim to have ownership of the term, but I hope that explains where I'm coming from. Opinions may differ.

    Great with country (tweed) suit. Not so much with business suit.

    Like I said before, and I'll say it again.

    Sure like that Blue on Blue.

    Patek and EG, what a combo.
