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 can go with this. Or I could go with Dover and Westminster.

    Not groupthink for me.

    Lots of good choices to pick from though.

    I love the Shannon. I am not really into the Galway--but I can see how people like it. I love the Dover. My favorite EG model is actually the Southwold-a sleeper for sure.

    Limit to three? Since balmorals are what I typically wear for work, my choices are Shannon, Inverness, and Beaulieu.

    No Galways for me either, simply couldn't find an appropriate time to wear them in Australia, it's simply never cold enough, and my legs are not long enough.

    Just because a model is popular doesn't mean a lot of people pick it because it group think. It just means it appeals to a lot of people.

    Fellas,

    only 3 EG is a very hard choice!

    The Gladstone (unfortunately a Top Drawer) but in my opinion breath taking beautiful and classy
    A Galway (so many combination possibility's) btw today i wear my Galway Veldts because we have some snow and rain and i found it very slippy with the Dainite Sole! I miss a Comando sole.
    The Beaulieu

    and then a lot of others! For me it is no option to go only with 3 EG:D

    I won't claim these are the three best EGs or even necessarily my three faves - but they are the only three that I own and I am extremely pleased with each pair.


    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] With respect to the Galway, I will say that it not only ranks as my favourite EG, but easily one of my favourite items of footwear on this here planet.

    If you told me I could only own 3 EGs (and that you were going to buy me those three) I'd probably pick 2 Galways and a Shannon.

    This prob happens with a lot of people...

    I have ~10 pairs of EG, and while I'm not really in an acquiring phase any more, I expect future purchases to be mostly Chelseas or Piccadillys.

    But over the next few years my shoe money's prob just gonna go toward resoling.

    It's nice to have shoes that are understated and therefore more versatile.

    What made you keep going back to the well - the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th time? I'm being serious, not sarcastic.

    Sorry if this is a dumb question but can the Galway be ordered without the toe cap? I have never seen it as a plain toe but am curious if its possible
