Harrogates today. Fall colors.
Quote:Not a huge fan of the socks but everything else looks great, particularly like that jacket
Nice shoes and watch!
I have 888's in
I have 82's in
They all fit fine; however the 82 in UK9D is quite snug (it is a balmoral), but no doubt wearable.
I would say UK9E in 82 and 888 work best for me.
Speaking of Shannons, wearing my pair today in rainy MI: Uni, do you have a sample of "lavagne" and how close is it to the the color of those in my pic?
Thanks for the info. I tried the UK9D in the82 last in both a balmoral and a single monk. Both felt too snug for long term wearable comfort. I'll have to see if I can find UK9E or UK9.5D in the 82 for comparison. As it stands, I wouldn't trust the UK9D - particularly in a boot fitting.
DD - those are absolutely fantastic.
Thanks Roger! For reference, I wear the same size in my 888 and 82 (6.5/7E) in boots and shoes. I've tried D and they are snug for me.
Yes, I'm pretty sure an E width would work on the 82 for me.
Do it! I really do not need another pair of Shannons... I would like something in navy or slate though... maybe GALWAYS?
Galways? It takes absolutely no prompting at all for me to trot out this pic.
I think we each own half of a perfect two-boot set.
I have yet to get my first pair of Galways. Maybe next season.
Great combos guys. Hard to do it better.
RogerP, do you have a fitpic handy of your 888 Shannon?
This ones for you Patek:
Namor, let me know when you get tired of them. I might just have to change my "no buying used shoes" stance and purchase them off you.
Are you a uk11 or uk11.5 in the 82 last? I'll keep an eye out for you
