    If/when I get the Galways, I would probably get it in dark oak/suede. I initially wanted the grain but my AS Miller has a grain shaft already.

    I just think this is strange: "The shannon boot is exceptionally dressy and is arguably overkill in just about any formal situation outside of a black tie."

    Cap-toes are not overly formal for most situations, and turning a cap-toe into a boot makes it less formal still.

    But whatevs.

    Shannon definitely looks too dressy IMO to be versatile. If its slate or something it works well but if its dark oak I really couldn't see it being worn outside of a full suit

    My black/cloud fits pretty well in informal (suits) days. The midnight/twilight combo does stand out a bit but its a nice change of pace. Funny thing is that people say my tan/white spectators stand out more than my blue Shannons.

    Ah yes, you see the light.

    You may have the Islay, and you do have the AS Miller, but you still need a Galway.[​IMG]

    Agreed, the miller and Galway are far too different. They occupy separate sartorial real estate

    I completely agree with the first sentence. But, to be fair, I find many balmoral boots too dressy to be versatile.

    To each their own .....

    Contrast colored balmoral boots are not versatile at all. The colors are too casual for the formal design akin to using tweed fabric for morning dress.

    And formal dove suede/canvass shaft with black calf balmoral boots are only good but not formal enough with morning dress.

    Galway on the other hand is useful in many situations and configurations.

    Are all Shannon contrasting by the way?
