I had considered the Shoreditch as well. After applying the SF level of scrutiny to such a critical life decision, I think I came to the conclusion that the 82 last would be somewhat limiting and I wouldn't ever wear them with denim. That's also my hangup about the utah Galway.

If I didn't already have a Dover that fits in this niche, I would really consider the London grain Dover on the EG site. It even has the tapered rubber sole, which I think looks so much better than Dainite.
Honestly, I think a Galway on the 82 looks good with denim but if you can't picture yourself wearing it then it's a no-go. @nishant has some great pics in this thread pairing Galway on 82 with denim, if you need some inspiration.

@nishant is an inspiring fellow. I have consulted his IG pics a couple times during my search.

In my mind I think of the 82 last as too pointy. I should just see what my Chelsea’s look like with denim rather than trying to imagine it.

I know in some makers, shell shoes/boots have a touch more room in them on the same last versus calf. Anyone care to comment if you've found this to be the case with EG?

202 lasted Galways, very nice!

I ordered almost the exact same make-up also on the 202, the only difference is that mine will be made in Dark Oak antique instead of in Burnt Pine. They should be ready within a fortnight.
Had almost forgotten ordering them.

My anticipation however has now skyrocketed thanks to the last few posts here. :bounce2:

Best of luck! After a shoe polish, they darkened up a bit and look almost like DOAK.

Yours are looking sweet!
I'll certainly post a couple of pics of them once they are in!

Hey guys,

I’ve never posted in here before but I just found these today and wondered if those in here with much more knowledge than myself could offer me some information about what I have here.

I found these today at a thrift store for $18. The thing I know for sure is this guy needed some damn shoe trees.

I just picked up this rlpl suit at deep discount so I'd have something to wear for summer events, but haven't ever worn a light suit like this before and am also colorblind. What color EGs would go best with this?
If you are wearing blue shirts, navy suede shoes will work really well.
