    It was certainly not my intent to cause any discord. The point I was trying to make was that few if any of us have one pair...the more you hang around this thread the more you are exposed to the wonderful endless options of EG. Anyway welcome to the thread.

    I misunderstood earlier and thanks for clarifying.
    I agree EG makes very high quality, comfortable shoes/boots and personally I would love to get a Shell Galway whenever that opportunity strikes.
    My experience with EG has been a hit or a miss.
    I purchased Galway 82 last 8.5 E (same size as G&G which I wear) and ended up returning due to sizing issues so that's why I didn't buy EG for a long time. Also, tried Galway 82 last 8 E Newmarket and that was too tight or it was welted too tight, had defects.
    Maybe it has something to do with the resin lasts and Newmarket could be on the older wooden last.

    Finally few days ago, I tried the 202 last 8 E and that worked perfectly for me. I am still not sure about my EG sizing fully and hesitant many times to buy them.

    202 tends to be wider than 82. I can wear 11E in both, but 11D is much better for me in 202. And 82E is remarkably close-fitting for RTW.

    Does anyone know how often Westley Richards restocks their rosewood galways? I think I need an 11.5 in the F width and they're sold out. Will I be waiting months for that?

    A couple more for my rotation. The first have been a bit of a Grail boot for me, I've wanted some for ages. Shannons in burnt pine, Edwardian and snuff suede on E606, and a pair of Portland in chestnut Utah.

    What in the world...That's the EXACT boot I had made up 9 months ago. Same hybrid pattern, lining, removed pull tab, colorways, last, etc... I haven't even worn mine yet. Now I'm tempted to check my basement to ensure they'll still there! Haha.

    Well, uh, great taste nonetheless!

    The only difference is a small tab on mine underneath the laces. They even have toe taps fitted.

    I got them from the factory shop, although I can't see anything wrong with them. If you ordered yours in UK8 (as these are) I'd say the pair you got were the second go they had at making them.

    In any case, they look amazing on the 606 - better than the 82, and its a great choice of colours. The 606 last is a great fit for me too.

    Ah, the factory seconds sale, that makes sense. Yes, same size and everything. It's comforting to know how seriously QC and MTO's in general are taken.

    Enjoy your new additions!

    My latest acquisition! Edwardian/Almond CC on 202.

    After finally telling @tifosi that I wanted to buy the galways he had listed in the classifieds we figured out we lived about ten minutes away from each other.

    It was a pretty amusing scene. We met in a Starbucks parking lot. He was wearing some killer galways, I had on my ironside indys. After buying the boots we stood in a snow storm talking shoes for about 45 minutes. I found it to be a hilarious way to spend my lunch break during work. He was super cool and it was nice to meet someone in person I could discuss $1000 shoes and not feel crazy!

    the new resin lasts messed up sizing for many (not all). I also hesitate because this sizing is all over the place - as is the fit and measurements.

    You might want to try 82 last size 8 in F width, it may work for you. I had the same problem with 82/888 last, they were too long in my regular width and length, a half size down was too short but half a size down and up in width works for me.

    Agree with you. Hard to get F widths stock stateside, unless you know a source!

    Thanks for your suggestion about trying 8F on the 82 last and will give that a try if some retailer is carrying in the US.

    just got a pair of Dovers in dark oak. wearing them today at work. walking all around on pretty hard floors at the lab all day, they have great support and great cushioning! I like my Carminas, but these are a step up! super!

    got from gentlemens footwear.

    best regards,

    I have 9UK E in 184 (a bit tight), 202, 606 and 890.

    82 9UK E is a bit big for me, but I think a 8,5UK F is a risk if you don't try before.

    Yes risk indeed but in my case it was calculated risk as I have tried going down a half size and the shoes were too short while regular size was too long so F width gives a little bit of width and length. I am not the only one with this problem @Murlsquirl also has issue with 82 last.
