1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I would think the Dover would be one.

    Galways are good looking and even iconic. However, "mandatory"....?

    The Dover is similar; beautiful, but not for everyone.

    Chelsea and Dover would be my other two choices.

    Certainly to each is own. These three for me are eg's staples. Good news for me, I can now step out and get a little more adventurous.

    Dover and Galway have both been SF groupthink top picks.

    I prefer the Shannon over the Galway, and not a fan of the Dover. But I like the boot version of the Dover, whatever it is called. Halifax?

    I've never pulled the trigger on a boot though. Too unusual for my office, and no EG boot is actually appropriate for the romanticized tough weather/conditions applications.

    EG's top 3 for me are the Chelsea, Oundle and Beaulieu. I know most of you will say Dover, but I've bought 4 pairs of Dover because of the groupthink and ended up selling every one. Not saying you guys are wrong, just saying that I don't get it

    Everyone has preferences, there is no right or wrong opinion to have. My logic is with these models, pretty much all situations are covered.

    Good choices.

    I think I have enough monks for now, but I've always thought about getting a pair of Shannons.

    Why Only 3 pairs of EG? All this talk about only 3 EGs has me questioning your life priorities and resolve to be the best dress gent in your respective towns. Go get a job at mcdonalds or Walmart if need be but don't put yourself in a EG shoe box corner by limiting yourself to 3.

    I think we all agree dark oak is king. My favorite models:

    Galway
    Shannon
    Nevis
    Asquith
    Oundle
