    Yes. EG and Gg are at the lowest prices they've ever been in the past year. Even lower than they were before the price increases.

    Great than I probably will do that after my EB chukka order that I am working on with Gabriel now. He is checking in the last situation for me from bonafe and then I'm ready to order it.

    I have that plus another shoe from another maker in the works so I am waiting for those to be paid for before my Jodhpurs. At least I will have time to work in the Bonafe for size first to decide in which brand for the Jodhpurs.

    That pair on the way is unfortunately much more than any of my other pairs so that one really has me taking a hit.

    I can't do a GMTO with my size and narrow width for GG,EG or EB anyway. :violin:

    This one which you've seen before.

    [​IMG]


    Not sure if you've seen this or not.

    [​IMG]


    White Dials I think are bit harder to match. But this is how I decided to go with this one.

    [​IMG]

    Then I chose this route for this one.

    [​IMG]


    This one is an old one but a favorite of mine. I think the little bit of Red in this dial goes real well with Zug.

    [​IMG]


    Green was way to easy for me, although when my latest pair of Green Malverns come out I may have to rematch the watch with the EGs instead.

    [​IMG]


    I think this one goes with red best, and I tend to wear it with boots more often, But for now.

    [​IMG]


    Black on Black typically and generally with boots. However I'm having difficulty finding the pairing. But this is one of my favorite pictures, so screw it.

    Great combos and some nice watches that you decided to buy. What is the watch with the spectator? Is it a royal oak? Tough to see.

    By the sounds of it, based on what @Leaves revealed today it looks like this is going to be 2015 the year of the boot.


    Great way to kick off the new year. Almost makes me wish we'd skip the spring and summer just so I could get my new boot sooner. LOL

    Going to see if the incoming Shannon is on the old & elegant, lighter Doak or the new, duller batch, hmm...

    Some of that top finishing will come off rather easy, and they should lighten up rather quickly. Checkout @tifosi 's Galway before and after.

    Assuming the Ullswater-like pair below is from Bonafe, does anyone know the model number? @Leaves @Skoaktiebolaget

    did it work? I usually have trouble getting it to show up, especially on the times when I am on SF from my iPad instead of the computer.

    can't we all just be friends and all go for both shoes and boots. Then we would all buy even more footwear!!!!! There is no need for Team Shoe and Team Boot

    I'm not on anyone's side, cause no one is on my side. It's a lonely road being a chukka guy, with no chukkas.

    Not a shoe guy, and not quite a boot guy. Simply some guy... :confused:
