    I saw those earlier today on the Leather Soul site, and I have to say I don't like them. I am as big an EG fan as anyone here but these look like blobs - shell is not something I think EG does well.

    Meh. Each their own. To me EG shell is the best in the business, much better finished than Alden for example.

    I am not an Alden fan either. I think the Carmina's look better, but, I have to admit, I have no interest in either.

    That is magnificent.

    One issue I have with the EG cordovan kind of agrees with a previous poster's dislike of EG shell products. Because shell has that characteristic way of creasing, it is perhaps better to select a design where the vamp has at least some stitching detail so that the smoother areas of the shell has the opportunity to show off the rather more attractive characteristic "shine".

    The most stunning EG "crup" was the Brummel in whiskey made for Leffot during 2011. Another is the Sandringham in either whiskey or brandy or cognac crup, every shoe a true masterpiece.

    Wholecut cordovans are not as attractive as calf or other hides, but that is just a matter of taste and opinion.

    I thought this would be fun since most celebrities don't wear SF approved shoes...

    WoW!!!

    After buying that jacket Tom, I hope he had enough money left over to settle your bill!!

    They look absolutely gorgeous! and I don't ever recall seeing those on offer with LSH or LSBH.

    Great stuff Tom!!

    That's awesome! Since you didn't mention it, I'm assuming your guys in Beverly Hills escaped without getting backhanded?

    Depends if Bryan tried to do more than a bro-hug :D

    On the fence about picking up a pair of lightly used Dovers for $500... steep for used EG, even if they are in good condition?

    Nothing too significant. I do wonder how much EG's go for factory seconds in Northampton... ideas anyone?

    I'll take your Dark Oak/Walnut CC Galway and raise you my MTO Galway.

    Namor, I don't care what anybody says on the topic, but the EG Galway is the best boot by any manufacturer by far.

    The 82 and 888 versions can be worn to the boardroom or into the garden or on a fishing trip.

    The M64 would be great in battle dress when you are busy invading some recalcitrant nation, and, not only that, it would also look good in a Luttwyche suit when you present the other side with their minimal acceptable terms of surrender.

    A very versatile boot, and this boot is the last remaining reason I am still a client of Edward Green.

    Here is my fully lined Galway on the 888 last with full double leather sole (not the HAF sole either, this bruiser has the full double leather sole) :-
