    I generally don't wear tall boots in summer, but picked up a pair close to this shade and plan to rock them out all year long. Very nice indeed.

    I really want to hop on the Shannons via Skoak but I already have the C&J Somervilles... 2 dark brown balmoral cap toe boots might be a little too redundant. :embar:

    You guys...I'm away for a weekend and all of a sudden we're talking Alderley in Whiskey Shell? :happy: I have to say I really love the idea, but from a commercial point of view it's not doable for me to stock it. It's also very unclear if EG can get hold of shell, probably not. So I'm still willing to fill any extra slots needed to make the Edwardian Alderley but I have to pass for a Whiskey Shell version.

    Keep in mind also that any Brooks Brothers store can have the Galway and the other makeups they regularly stock transferred to any of their locations anywhere in the US. Here in Atlanta, they were happy to transfer in two models (a single monk strap in (nutmeg?) suede and the Asquith in cloud). You can see what they normally stock on their website. I purchased the Asquith last Thursday during BB's 30%-off-everything corporate sale for just under $945 including EG trees.

    On another topic, I wish I could find the Asquith in Edwardian somewhere - a lighter color calf is something my wardrobe is lacking and Skoat carries it but only in the F width. Has anyone every tried phoning the main EG company boutique in London to purchase over the phone and will they ship? I imagine this question has already been covered in this thread somewhere so pardon the question but if someone could give me a brief answer on that point I would appreciate it.

    Ah well, that's probably the best for my ecoomy anyway. When do you plan on opening for the edwardian version?

    Well if Skoaktiebolaget stocks Asquith in F width, they may be able to order Asquith in E width without MTO up-charge. Send the message to @Leaves and see what he says.

    Received the Galways from Brooks Brothers today in a 9EUS and they fit perfectly. First of all, what size is this in the UK size?

    Yes, just give them a call or email them as they do ship overseas. I've bought a couple from them.

    Yes, 8.5 E in UK. In EG, there is only half a size difference.

    Is it unusual that an 8.5UK in the 888 last was too small in the toe box?

    I guess I should be asking is if the 82 last has a larger toe box than the 888 last? To my novice eyes it looks as though the 82 last is larger because the round toe shape since the 888 is more of a modified square toe.
