    Love both the Nevis and G&G Thorpe (I have a pair in Oak Pigskin and wear it all the time off work).

    There is not a sentence ever written about EG in which someone forget's to mention about...the pig bristles.

    Last time I was there the Galway (and other boots) were listed at £770. I suspect there will be a slight upcharge for the Nevis due to the hand sewn apron, in the same way that there is an upcharge on the Dover with respect to the standard EG shoe line.

    Which EG colour is closest to G&Gs espresso besides Dark Oak?

    Pics would help!

    Hazel perhaps? If you Google Image Edward Green Hazel I'm sure some things will pop up. That being said, I think Dark Oak reigns supreme.

    If I remember correctly G&G "Espresso" is an aniline coloured mat. Both Hazel and Dark Oak are vintaged. Don't worry, Adam will help ya! We even got a 9.5 last 83 for you to try out...

    Dark Oak is a great classic color for shoes.

    +1. Dark oak works with a lot of outfits.

    Is the Dark Oak color, consistent?
    I've noticed some pairs a lot lighter than others.
    My previous Malverns and Chelseas were a lot darker than the Sandringhams I have now..

    It is not. I have about 5-6 pairs in dark oak and they differ. I like that they have slightly different shades.

    From what I understand, if you do a MTO you can request a dark, medium or light shade of Dark Oak.
