    Hey guys!

    Thinking about picking up a Galway boot. I intend to wear it more causually; jeans up to the odd trouser, but mostly jeans and chinos. Having trouble choosing between the following three colors:
    [​IMG]

    Navy Utah

    [​IMG]


    Dark Brown Delapre

    [​IMG]

    Chestnut Utah (although on the 72 last, and not the 82 pictured above).

    Of the three, I am currently leaning toward Chestnut Utah the most because of that beautiful color which shows off the burnishing and ability to show patina, as well as the less aggressive shape on the 72 last. Any advice would be helpful!

    This is what I have been sharing - at least in our size, the new lasts run bigger than before

    Want to get some sizing advice for 606 last. I have a couple of EGs in different sizes:

    202 last - 6E for Dover, 6F for malvern

    82 last - dover in 6.5E

    Wannna get advice on what size I should wear for 606 last for Dover.

    On a related note, I wear Laughton 890 Last in 6.5E. For G&G MH71 last, I generally wear 6F or 6.5E, with a very slight preference for 6F. Thanks!

    These nutmeg suede dovers are sublime. I recently had the chance to inspect a good number of suede leathers from EG. And for me personally, Nutmeg absorbed/deflected light in the most interesting way out of the other suedes.

    Been thinking about doing an MTO just like this. May I ask, which retailer did this? Or was it an MTO?

    Thanks!

    Thank you @wristandfeet - these are an MTO I commissioned last summer.

    I take the same size in 202 and 606, both 7E. While most others say that the two fit identically, I find that 606 feel slightly more snug in the toe box.

    Was there a reason why you chose 6 E rather than 6.5 E in the 202? From your pics, it appears that perhaps you could've sized up by half a size in the 202 because the midsection seems rather snug.

    Given how great the fit looks on 6.5 E on 82, and that the 6E on 202 seems tight, my best guess is that 6.5E on 606 would be optimal.

    The nutmeg is a fantastic color - wish I still had some.
