    Received my Heather Gorse AKA ZUG Galways today. I have to tell you I am extremely impressed. I could say that this completes my trifecta with regards to Galways, however I'm not certain I am finished with Galways yet. But the Heather Gorse Galways are certainly look to be Built Tough.

    Once again thanks to those initially bringing this idea up @SKM and @CTBrummie , as well as
    @Leaves for making it a reality. If I missed anyone I apologize.


    Zugs ROCK!!![​IMG]

    Any interest here in doing a full brogue oxford like the EG Malvern or inverness in suede?

    You should probably say what last are you interested in. It will be a uphill battle no matter what after all the recent MTOs

    True that. I'm thinking either 82 or 888… Or 890?

    I am a fan of mole suede. I like that LS makeup.

    FYI, it looks like there are some future stock models planned in suede according to the EG brochure http://www.edwardgreen.com/brochure.html. Could avoid the MTO charge in the future maybe. Unfortunately only black suede in malvern and the only other suede brogue oxford would be the asquith in mink suede.

    Correct. We started working on this model over a year ago if I remember correctly, and this was the first prototype model. I have to say I think they will look so much nicer in shell (most boots do). We'll see in a few days when they arrive.



    Thank you my good man, for your continued addic...ehrm... support. :)

    How does the EG 606 last compare to Carmina Rain and Simpson?

    I would not look to deeply into the brochure, it's not always a good representation of coming stock models. EG is actually revamping their whole stock line system this fall, we're expecting more detailed info within a couple of weeks.

    Wow, a lot of exiting stuff going on at EG at the moment – new website (and apparently web store?), new(ish) MTO programme and now new stock line system… Is it just new models, or is there something more game changing afoot? :)
