    I didn't know that.


    You wouldn't happen to have a picture of the Galway on the 64 Last do you?

    Why aren't the new Galways made on 64? I think I remember someone answering this in an earlier post..

    The stock Galway (veldtshoen) sold at EG boutiques are on the 64.

    That's it! Thanks GB. The 64 is a perfect last for a country boot. However, when it comes to hardier footwear, I have to lean towards Tricker's/AS. I save EGs for smart shoes and boots.

    ddd... maybe in due time. :)

    Thank you.

    Yes, this looks quite a bit more hearty or sturdy.

    However since I have plenty of those kind of boots, I rather like it more on the sleeker 82 Last.

    Remember just because you have an Islay, one can also enjoy a Galway.[​IMG]

    My understanding is that the 64 is a boot specific last. It seems slightly wider than the 202 and a bit shorter.....

    Hmm I am confused so what is different? Say UK11E and UK10.5F are the same width, what about their length? Which one is longer?

    Edward Green Twill and Calf
    Some say suede is more formal and some say twill is. Both are done well by EG.

    I'd have to agree with this.

    Both wingtips look great, but in this case my preference would be the pair in blue.

    But that's probably because I already have a few spectators in brown already.

    Are there any advantages or disadvantages to twill versus suede, or is it strictly a matter aesthetics?

    I just received a lovely pair of Chelsea in Dark Oak from Edwards of Manchester. However, on the box, it's labelled as "Chelsea.N". Is the additional ".N" meaningful?

    For those that send shoes back for recraft, do they return them in the same way you sent them (e.g., sent in a bag, returned in a bag) or they return them in a box with the polishing mat (I assume shoe bags aren't given for recrafts)?

    The pair I sent them were returned in a plain dark green box w/ EG label listing shoe info, along with bags and a polishing mat: http://www.styleforum.net/t/180142/edward-green-recrafting-on-permanent-style/50_50#post_3324903

    Thanks for the post Wes (haven't seen you on lately)! I'm really impressed with the work on the uppers and that they replaced the insole. Looking at the post it was about 3 years ago, did you specify that you wanted X, Y, & Z done in addition to the H/A/F sole replacement?
