    Wow, I agree there's quite a bit of difference in colour threre. But they're still sweet as he... Wear them in good health, would love to see some photos of them worn!

    Cheers,

    With proper treatments, I think you could get them looking very similar to the other pair.

    All I have is the iPhone and I had to use the flash so the pictures turned out quite crappy, but here you go, better than nothing :)

    The color is different, but I like the color in your photo better! Enjoy!

    As fate would have it, Sky Valet had one pair left in 9/9.5D, 202 last - and on sale for $875. They shall arrive tomorrow. :nodding:

    Exactly - use some renovateur and do a bit of burnishing and a good polish and the color will come up much richer. I generally find that EG's out of the box often have a very flat appearance and it takes at least one polish to bring out the beauty latent in the leather.

    Cheers,

    +1

    Prior to their first wear, my dark oak EG Wells underwent a treatment of Saphir shoe cream in medium brown, followed by Saphir wax polish in medium brown, together with a decent bit of brushing and a soft flannel cloth. The beauty in and of the leather was much more apparent post-treatment.

    A good weekend to all.

    I didn't like the color at first, but against those pants. BEAUTIFUL!

    Is the buckle connected to a leather strap or elastic strap on the westminster?

    Right on schedule. The fit is great. The shoes are in terrific shape. And Sky Valet threw in some shoe cream and some polish as an added surprise.

    I have tried on Chelseas on the 82 last and the 202, each 9/9.5 D. The fit of the 202 is better for my foot (at least for this model). I actually like how it looks slightly better too (at least for this model). However, I don't dislike the 82 and have that last too, but in a blucher.

    Those are the boots I want... I just can't seem to find them in stock anywhere in my size. Where did you get them, if you don't mind me asking?
