    i think the "dark" comes from burnishing and that lends itself to variations from one shoe to the next

    Who is the manufacturer of a Dark Oak leather? Is it possible to make a briefcase out of it? Would be cool to have a matching briefcase with the shoes .. [​IMG]

    I know, but their briefcases have stratospheric price .. I thought purchasing the dark oak leather separately from the manufacturer and than forward it to a briefcase maker in UK who is much cheaper and I'm satisfied with his work ..

    I will try not to go off topic, but Ray Clark from the UK represented his work in a Briefcase Thread a while back. His briefcases were in a 350 GBP price range, which is just what I need, and I loved his work .. Clean and nice .. Personally I would be satisfied doing a briefcase like this one he made only in Dark Oak and wear it with navy suit and doak chelsea ..

    I'm not sure the answer of your question, but a well known retailer of EG shoes recently told me that EG just switched the maker of some of its leathers - last 6-8 months. Not sure if all calf leathers or just some. Will post pics some time this week - took delivery of pair of Canterbury's in Burnt Pine and they look very, very close to DOAK. Could pass for DOAK to me and I have quite a few pairs of DOAK.

    Yes, I noticed too that Burnt Pine is almost same color/shade is Daok .. You can find the dark shades of burnt pine looking same as doak and light shades of doak looking as burnt pine .. especially after a few coats of medium brown saphir cream

    A few zug photos, also @jhcam8 was spot on with sizing in terms of one half size larger and one width up vs 202 / 82. I went with my size in 202 / 82 and this boot fits significantly smaller than both pairs. Still works with thin dress sock but not really sock I would wear with a boot of this type. Like others said, a bit less red than photos would indicate

    you got a size 10F? Sorry to hear they are slightly snug. Shouldn't you have gone for a 10.5?

    Thanks!


    Yeah should have gone 10 / 10.5F though I was under impression when ordering that 64 last fits big as some others have mentioned in this thread

    I too was a bit surprised with the sizing on the 64 last, although they're not too bad size wise for me.


    Nice pictures by the way.

    So these are the same size as your 202/82 and they are too snug?

    I like the F width on these, too. My CC Galways are F width as well.

    Mine fit a little snug as well but I went up a width on mine. It is a little tight across the vamp/instep but toes and heel are good. I anticipated it fitting bigger than what it is, I also figure that they will stretch a bit once properly broken in.
