    Wow that's incredible, $800 and some change for the exact same shoe.

    That explains why the Sasseti RLPL shoes were so heavily discounted during the last sale.

    After getting my Marlows and Lindricks I haven't paid much attention to RL shoes.

    Does it matter how it ages, given that it's on the inside of the boot leg? It will still keep your feet warm.

    For what it's worth, having a lined boot leg is pretty much all anyone would need for a typical British winter assuming that you drive and aren't prone to spending hours standing still in snowy fields. I also have the Cheaney Irvine boot which is fully lined and they are like wearing radiators on your footsies!

    The shearling Galway is fine for the typical wintery things that an English bloke might do, such as strolling down the pub on Christmas Eve, going to the footy on Boxing Day, and having to yomp home after a heavy snowfall because the local council ran out of grit for the roads and all cars are at a standstill as a result...

    If you live somewhere proper cold then head over to Cheaney's website and see what shearling models they have on offer. Their heavier boot options are showing Tricker's how classic models should evolve, and they did three (non-shearling) veldt boot models at the last count (although I think only the Pennine is a 360 degree stitch-down boot and the Mallory and Fiennes are 270 degree).

    That might be true, and correct me if i'm wrong but I don't remember EG and G&G shoes going on sale on the RL site. besides their selection is pretty limited with those two brands. Skoaktiebolaget has been fairly EG price friendly so I've made most of my EG purchases there recently.

    They get discounted at sale time. EGs go down to about $800 or slightly less. GGs in the $600 range.

    Thanks uncle
    Sadly I am size-less by the time this happens. After a conservative Monday (black Chelsea), midnight/twiligh Shannons today: [​IMG]

    But their EG and G&G selections are extremely limited, No?

    Ah yes now I remember. I actually purchased the EG Hutton from RL. It happened to go on sale and I got them then.

    However since then I found out about Skoak and I've been purchasing more standard fare or joining with others here on a couple of GMTOs.

    Do you ever wear those Huttons? I find them attractive, appealing even, but I have always avoided them because I doubt I would have occasion to wear them much. Do others have thoughts?

    I haven't worn them yet, but I plan to when the opportunity presents itself. This shoe probably won't be worn that often, but that's fine with me. When worn they will certainly bring enjoyment to me.
