I agree on the 72 last Galway. @steveyoo1983 from Gentlemen's Footwear has a few sizes of the Mahogany country calf version still for sale. I have that boot and it's incredible. He also has a grey country calf version coming in that I think would be nice with denim. Rosewood country calf would also be nice if you can find it.

If you can't find a Galway you like and wanted something immediate, I think EG has a dark brown Utah Cranleigh for sale on their website. That's a cool boot as well. Depending on your preference @steveyoo1983 also has a burgundy London grain Cranleigh for sale.

Thanks. The 202 is my favourite last so it would be on that last. I just begrudge paying the MTO extra but I can see me wearing these 100 days a year for the next 15 years.

Dark brown Utah and Rosewood CC are beautiful colors imo
I have Galways in both these leathers on the 82 last and love them both. I haven’t seen or worn Galways on other lasts but the 82 is in my opinion perfect. Still pretty rugged but refined enough that it turns heads and can be dressed up or down. Perfect for about town with a pair of jeans.

I thought it might be nice to run a thread for Edward Green enthusiasts. I am particularly interested in where people go to buy EG shoes. Now, to be sure, there is no doubt a thriving MTO culture, but if you know your size and are just starting to build your collection , RTW is a more economical option. (And as an instant gratification buyer, there is no wait!) I am surprised how few options there appear to be for RTW sales. I thought we could all share what we have found, particularly with an eye to online sales. It would be great to do this with a range of brands.

Sky Valet in Washington DC. A nice selection of styles and a good price point at just under $1000. Have on line sales.

Suit Yourself (aka Fairfield Clothiers in CT.) Similar to above. A half dozen styles, just under $1000. A few styles in the shop that aren't online. Have on line sales.

Aside from the occasional sales, the above have been the best prices I have found for EG.

Leather Soul. Nice selection. Around $1100 ( don't know if that includes trees). They don't really push on line sales, so you have to contact them for size and availability. Tom is great to deal with.

Leffot. Similar to Leather Soul. Nice selection. Just recently developed an on line store so you can check for availability.

Stanley Korshak. a few styles available. On line sales.

Brooks Brothers. Have added a few styles to their catalog. On line sales.

There have been others that have come and gone. J. L. Powell had a nice collection, particularly of boots, but the fact that they ended up discounting them into the 600-700 dollar range suggests they weren't moving at the 1,300 they originally asked. They have not apparently restocked.

And to get the EG pron underway:

Falkirk Spectator




I have a lot of EG these came today and are superlative

I have a pair of Halifax boots in burgundy Utah, on the 202 last and Dainite soles. I've had them several years and they are comfortable and wear, well, just like Dovers only in a boot. So, is there any point in picking up a pair of Cranleighs...in burgundy Utah, on the 202 last, with Dainite soles? I keep looking at them on the EG website and one part of me goes "Ooooooo", and the more sensible part of me goes "those are exactly like your Halifaxes".

Help me out here!

If it were me, I'd probably get them in a different leather, but can definitely see a use case for both.

I have the day off today so decided to do a full cleaning on my Edward Green monks.

The shoes didn't look bad at all before, in fact I think they look amazing from distance but not so quite when I am closer.
Just doing it as a project to entertaining myself, and wanted to share the whole process here

Curious on people's opinions: Given EG boots like the Galway, Kentmere and Cranleigh, which utah leather looks best with denim - navy or dark brown? I'm stuck between the two.

Navy leather with denim? Assuming the denim too is some shade of blue, that’s a no go. I’d stick to brown.

This is regardless of the material or grain. I don’t think navy shoes would go with blue denim.

Thanks, I think you're right. I remember seeing a photo of what I thought was navy with denim and it looking good... but I think maybe it was black in hindsight.

I think that it depends on the shade of blue....light no...dark yes
