Agree, I don't find them particularly friendly.
Just Luv those shoes for some reason.
I have yet to wear mine besides a few times inside to slowly break them in, but the weather here is certainly getting to the point I plan on it real soon.
Working on that next EG purchase as we speak.
Emails back and forth to Skoaktiebolaget have just completed, I'm just waiting on that on invoice now.
Nice, ddd. I've been working up the guts to email them about a new MTO, too. Not quite ready to get the process going.
Which one are you considering now?
I may be going with an Alderley. I want a brown wingtip and after getting a quote from across the pond for a brown shell Skye2, I'm thinking for the same money I may just go with EG. Sure it'll be calf, but I'm not stuck on shell.
Oh yeah, what color Alderley?
The Skye2 is nice, and I like the fact that it has the Dainite sole. But I actually like the Lindrick on the 325 Last better, however I just wish it had the Dainite sole. I have a pair of Lindricks. Anyway, if your like me you probably have quite a few cordovan boots.
Either way I don't think you can go wrong.
What are you going with?
I am contemplating a suede Halifax myself
I'm sticking with the original plan. I'm filling in those holes, well actually it's an upgrade. The brown Chelsea I received earlier has convinced me that a Black Chelsea on the 82 would do the trick nicely. I thought about the Dover in Doak, but I figured I wanted to get the staples covered first, and besides I'm getting that Dover in Mahogany CC in a couple of months anyway.
The suede Halifax sounds interesting, what color of suede are you looking at?
I was originally thinking burgundy, but now I may do a brown tone.
I think I would probably go with brown or Edwardian if I were to get the Alderley.
I was considering burgundy too, in fact someone else was interested in Alderley in burgundy, I think @Ironist.
Brown shades are nice too, I ordered Falkirk in hazel recently.
I'm actually interested in the alderlay in rosewood. I think you had like 4 others interested in the Burgundy though iirc.
