    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.

    The EG buffing mitt I have is made from willow calf. It is really cool. I would love to get a shoe or part of a shoe made from it. My wife got me the mitt last year, so the stuff must be around somewhere. I can take some pics tonight if anyone is interested.

    While we are throwing down leather options, how about something in peccary, like a chukka?

    I wish Tricker's was able to do the curved side, similar to the Galway, it's a much more stylish design.

    Agree. But for a 280 GBP brand new, they look pretty good and make a decent option for a rotation pair in ugly Winter weather. I just can't seem to find them anywhere on the web. Could be they are sold out and not in production any longer.

    Probably not in production. I haven't seen a Tricker's Veldt in years.

    OK, I don't want to hijack the Thread, but when talking about the Veldt leather, I just found these cool boots too. They have a similar curved side like the EG. Commando soles. Though they would look better without the stitching detail in the toe area.

    My vote is for a Dover (606) or Falkirk (202). Willow calf is elegant, but a bit sporty. Nothing delicate or fussy looking!

    Yes Falkirk on 202 last. There @Leaves it is time for you to wave your magic wand.

    I can't believe I'm saying this, but something other than a Dover would be nice. Two is enough for me. I'd be interested in another style. I'm lazy...what's the Falkirk again?

    Thanks, laufer. I feel the willow would be better served on something a little more plain.

    I am surprised nobody has suggested Nevis or Halifax.

    That I understand. I don't like too many of one style, with the exception of plain oxfords and standard leisure penny loafers.

    However, the Willow looks so good on the Dover. It's why I have not picked up a dark oak Dover yet, holding out for dark oak willow. It also looks cool with all of the punching on the Falkirk.
