Good morning gents: maiden voyage
Although the CC uppers and the calf leather shaft is probably the more practical application on the Galways it just seems backwards to me. Probably because the one I first liked was the standard Doak and Walnut CC on the shaft.
Lovely boots. What jeans are they?
thanks, they are not jeans they are chinos and they are from PT01.
So is this why your ordering the Nevis? It's the boot version of the Dover.
Does anyone else's Dark Oak burnishing come off the leather relatively easily? Even just brushing with a cloth can remove a bit of it... and using some renovateur on it would strip a lot out.
Not that I mind as it gives the shoe an interesting hetrogenous colour, but how can I restore it if the burnishing will keep coming off? Is it just as simple as polishing with some dark brown polish?
hm, i don't think that the Nevis ist the Boot version of the Dover.
i don't own the dover yet but i love the more round toe-box.
For me the Nevis unfortunately has a more square box
Yes, mine does.
I don't have an answer to the second part of your post.
The toe box between the Dover and the Nevis are identical if made on the same last. The Nevis just features a more squared off apron stitching. Unless that's what you were referring to.
@ tifosi :Jap, that's what i mean.
but the Halifax is it maybe
If you MTO the Nevis on the 202, apparently EG will do the rounded apron stitching. Leaves at SkoAB confirmed that with EG.
Is its also possible with MTO to made the more round stiching with the 606 Last on the Nevis? That would bring me in a lot of Troubles
No. 202 only. You're safe.
Hm not realy
The decesion is First the Galway in DO walnut CC or the DO Nevis
To make it a lot catchier i am not sure about 202 or 82 on the Galway.
What a hard live
^202 Galway, it's versatile and practical. I understand the Dover far more than the Nevis, and my choice would be a dark oak Dover in lieu of a dark oak Nevis. Good luck with your decision. Cheers.
To took the plunge and decided to keep? No going back now you're infected with the Galway disease
