Does that mean that Snowdon ZUG GMTO wouldn't be from Horween then?
I don't know, sorry. It's only available in Burgundy, which was the wrong colour for the MTO that I am doing so I have not delved any deeper into its origins.

A few days ago, yes.

My guess is that it's just the naming convention since the original "Zug" was a trademark from the Scottish tannery W&J Martins and the Heather grain/gorse was the original color, which was burgundy. Similar to how they still call bourbon colored shell "Whiskey" even though Horween discontinued that color a few years back now.

Haha - no worries! You should just be able to "click" in the appropriate cell, and add your info...

I've added your SF username as the 8th participant, and I can add your size if you want...
Yeeeaahh, that is odd, it just doesn't let me. I'm a UK 9 regular width.

The Whisky Coniston feels left out.
Not a fan of shell as it is, and unfortunately the build isn't calling my name. I may be tempted with a Skye or Islay GMTO. 😉

I thought zug was the name of the embossing, so from what I'm deducing, is zug a tannage.......?

Hi guys!

For quite some time I have been pondering about a wingtip full brogue make-up in a rather uncommon colour. I finally decided to go ahead, ordered them in Februar at C&J and received them yesterday. When I opened the box, my thoughts were: holy sh**. They turned out exactly as I hoped they would and I think they are quite "versatile".
Thanks to Chris @ C&J for his help!

Yeah, it's really good stuff. Water basically beads off it and needs almost zero upkeep. Here are a few pics for you.

Horween were only producing black and oxblood, I believe you bought those from Dagestad thus it is not Horweens (because they only released new colour fairly recently). Same unknown tanneries like both of my Galway, BTW thanks for the inspirations on the oak! It is a big success!

C&J refers to their Zug as Heather Gorse.
Almost every English brands refer Zug as HG because EG natural way of renaming leather AND colour. What we are so used to call HG was Zug produced by Ilcea.
