    I like the texture, but the split toe makes me thing that the leather might be too thick for such a detail. Maybe on a plain toe or something similar?

    How does kudu compare to GG highland grains, as far as hand softness and flexibility?

    UK10 bruh. I already had the Carmina x Epaulet Greeleys in UK10 Forest and the Oscar fits pretty close. Carmina lasts are hella comfortable

    My turn for a sizing question: how'd you size your EG Galways in the 64E last, half down or full down from US? I got a size 10.5UK coming in (wanted to get the skoak one, but tropical asian countries aren't nice for shearling linings so found an unlined one on eBay) and really hope they fit.

    Nice! Unlined Galway on the 64? Send me a link. Curious to see the makeup. Yeah I take the same size in all EG and they fit well (+/- .25 size) so uk10.5 sound right for you

    I sized down 1/2 in the oscar from Robert last. I was able to do the same with rain last so figure open laced oscar will fit well.

    For reference:

    Carmina (shell boots):
    Rain uk10.5
    Oscar uk10.5
    Forest uk10.5
    Robert uk11
    Alcudia uk11.5

    EG

    Uk11.5

    Thanks again for the pics ex death. I can't get enough of that color. First time seeing a burgundy shell that looks bronze/brown

    Hey guys, we have five interested in this now, so it's happening. Also, four of those five are F-width, so the base order will be F, but all widths will be accepted in this order.

    Today we are launching our new collection of peccary gloves. These are made by Hestra. Like many of our artisans, Hestra is a family business, founded in 1936 by Magnus Magnusson. In the deep forests of Småland, Sweden, Magnusson started making work gloves, then dress gloves and ski gloves. Today Hestra is still run by the third and fourth generation Magnussons. We offer three colors of wool-lined peccary gloves. For the coming spring we will offer unlined peccary gloves and also hope to source carpincho gloves.

    Here ya go - looks like it's the Holland & Holland makeup or something similar. Quite stoked to get them.

    The Carmina burgundy shell is pretty sick yea, it can do brown or even ravello tones in various shades of sunlight.

    I just noticed there's a tiny bit of the leather lining fraying at the vamp V-shaped cutouts on both boots tho - should I worry much? Looks like it's already quite protected by the stitching so there shouldn't be much chance of it spreading further.
