Why would you want to remove them?
Sorry, original post somehow got deleted. So anyway, I want to remove them because they my pants keep getting caught in them. I tried stitching them (as one member suggested), but that didn't work out cost the tabs stick further up past the edge.
On other boots with cloth/elastic tabs, I just tuck them in. I don't really know what to do with these except to remove them.
are you talking about the pull tab?
Sounds like it. On what boot?
Yep, that's right. Pull tabs on my Galways. Just want to know if there are any brave souls who have gone ahead removed theirs.
who will kop?
Not even if they were in my size. Nope Nope Nope
They look like seconds to me...
On a separate note, pricing is getting a little weird. The spread in price between rare shall cordovan from Alden and EG calf in some shoes has narrowed to approx. $120 for US buyers.
Do any of you guys own EG shell shoes? This is something I have not seriously considered in the past, but I saw the EG PTB on Mr Porter, which reminded me EG offers shell in more than a few models.
I own a pair and @DpprDr owns a pair. Both are Derwents, his is in Brown or Cognac and mine are in Navy. I think @NAMOR had a pair or two at one time.
Fair enough. Thanks. I have only seen the brown and cognac EG shell in person once. I would consider them, but it seems a stiff premium over C&J shell and other alternatives. And while EG construction is excellent, they're essentially using the same shell as others supplied by Horween.
True, but I didn't pay retail, so I got mine at a pretty good price. Since I didn't have any navy shell at the time, I couldn't pass it up.
yah you did
Yes I did.
Oh, how's that MTO coming together for you?
