    These came in this week, apologies for the poor pic quality:

    [​IMG]

    Very pleased with both. The button boots are very comfortable and the the galways are a tank. Button boots are museum calf and hidro suede. Galway is doak and walnut CC with double leather soles. Only wish the doak was a little lighter. Great service from Gabriel in placing the mto's and the Galways came in pretty quickly.

    Thanks for the compliments gents. @BootSpell - I placed the order the first week in February. They shipped out last Friday. Arrived this morning. I believe the quoted wait time per skoaks website is about 6 months. So I was a little surprised these came in so quickly. Also waiting on a Dover mto I placed about a week later so hopefully those come in soon as well.

    You made my day! At least I can hope based on the arrival of your beautiful boots. I placed my order in the 2nd week of February. I wasn't expecting my Galways till late June or July sometime. Mine are hopefully shortly behind yours. Thanks.

    Don't want to rain on anybodies parade, but I think it just all depends. We placed an order for Falkirks in late October, 4 of them came in a couple of weeks ago. Mine still haven't come in yet. It's my understanding the first try didn't pass their QC.

    @BootSpell - Hopefully yours come in on the next shipment to skoak. I had similar expectations on when they would arrive.

    @RogerP - Thank you sir. Really looking forward to wearing the button boots. Im hoping the doak will lighten to a similar shade as yours but I still love them all the same. I consider your pair the unicorn of Doak/Walnut CC. Your pics helped push me to that make up.

    Hey, my Malverns were ordered 1 Jan and I just received those last week. Besides, although the seven going on eight months are trying my patience the Falkirks will be worth the wait. From past deliveries I know the shoes will look fabulous without issues and I currently have the shoe rotation that allows me to truck on while waiting for them.

    Gentlemen,

    Tell me a bit about this EG Nevis boot...is it essentially the boot version of the Dover?

    Hand sewn vamp with boar's hair instead of metal needles?

    Your general thoughts are appreciated.

    Thanks.

    Pig Bristle, same thing.

    Yep, essentially the boot version of the Dover.

    Be sure to take a look at the Thorpe, basically G&Gs version of the Nevis. It's a little stylistically different with a swoop on the side of the shaft.

    3D,

    So you actually recommend the G&G version over the EG then?

    Thanks.

    Every EG stitch toe is pretty much the bee's knees.
