    Aha, you would need to grow two full sizes to be in with a chance! Have to catch up over coffee soon, been talking about meeting in Northampton for too long...

    The Kelso's more heavy-duty than the Galway, as the pattern AS used means that they can be lined with leather, too. The zug used by them when they used to make them is more burgundy than brown. Nice boots, some need to size down a half size into them as the last is pretty roomy. Where did you get them from? The only place I know that stocks them is out of my size...

    True enough, let's pick a Friday. I'll meet you there and drive us back for a coffee/snifter :slayer:

    I got them from Tredders, they have size 11 left. They also fave AS Selkirk which is the same boot but with leather soles.
    I noticed these are on FX fitting which generous fitting. I palm to wear them with the thick socks.

    Any leather will wear through if subjected to conditions conducive to aforesaid wear. I've not heard of normal use resulting in wear through of a suede shaft. Got pics?

    Well I've found a way of getting photos up but there must be an easier way. The boots are on a 202 last with dainite sole. It's hard to capture the colour with a overcast grey London sky. quote]

    You need to upload your photos to PhotoBucket or another hosting service and copy the 'img' code and paste.

    Wow, I didn't know any of this. But it sounds like I have at least one resole that I can expect from EG and still maintain the veldt welt. Given my current rotation and the Ridgeway sole I should hopefully have no issues. but this certainly is nice to know. Thanks for sharing, your certainly have a wealth of knowledge about these boots.

    RLPL Carter -basically a modified Ecton on the 808 with HAF sole. Picked them up from Ed Morel - a great seller, which probably goes without saying at this point - and just got around to lathering in saphyr reno and neutral polish:

    Very nice, Congrats.


    If you have the Dover how would you compare the two in look, fit, wear, and preference if any?

    ^^^ you know, I actually don't own the Dover. I have the Carter and the Halifax which are both Dover/ecton hybrids for rlpl. Personally, I like the three eyelets on those models because there's more room for the arch. The 89 last for the split toe Halifax is a bit more chiseled than the 202, but still pretty roomy. I probably could have gone down a half size on the 89 for the snug fit that I like. The Halifax is also a double sole but without the HAF sole, which feels much stiffer when you wear it, and much more substantive, IMO.

    Cool, maybe not what I was looking for initially but still great insight into how these wear for you. Thank you and congratulations again on your latest acquisition.

    @jhcam8 I submitted that mto before my self-imposed ban on G&G. But I won't allow myself to renege on a fucking awesome shell boot :colgate:

    Can we please agree that the Dover is one of the most versatile styles out there in this day and age of "smart casual" and "business casual" and the likes? :D
