    If you don't like it or can't live with it. I think a return and refund is in order. Don't wear them!

    I would also hope for an expedited remake on your original order.

    Who did you order them through?

    Leather Soul in Beverly Hills. I'd love to get them remade, but I'm not sure I've got time. I bought them to wear to my wedding (which is in a few months). Given that the original order took twice as long as promised, I don't have much faith that they can fix them in time. I've contacted the retailer and I guess we'll see what happens.

    If they did mess up, that's really terrible to hear, Joshua. As a note, for future reference, I've found that EG is happy to send along leather swatches for MTO orders. That way, you can be sure the material you think you're getting is the material you'll be getting. I find online photos to be completely unreliable, especially when it comes to EG.

    Namor, for the ultimate sprez, you should wear one of each of those shoes--buckle undone on on one of course. :slayer:

    Thank you.
    Quite regularly, actually.

    I was reviewing an old Edward Green Catalog, and I was reminded of this line:

    EG enthusiasts, I have been trying to track down Namor's Galway boot in my size (as seen below) and have had absolutely no luck (even existing preorders are fully subscribed).

    [​IMG]

    Luckily, I PM'ed Leaves from Skoaktiebolaget and he would be willing to work with us on a MTO of a similar Galway boot and most importantly if six of us are interested there would be no MTO upcharge (which is clutch). The price would be 8700 SEK including VAT; for those of us in the United States, without VAT the price would be 6960 SEK, which is right around $1030, which is a pretty great price for these boots.

    Wanted to gauge if people were seriously interested in putting together a Galway MTO?

    I would suggest the following specs:

    Dark Oak Antique calf (lower)
    Walnut or Mahogany country calf (upper) - open to other complementary country calf colors
    Antiqued brass exposed eyelets with speedhooks
    Fully lined shaft
    Medium antique edgetrim
    Brown Dainite Sole

    Definitely PM if you are seriously interested and have any questions. Thanks all! Hopeful we can get this off the ground.

    I think an easy size, 10UK, 10.5US. I have emailed all the retailers at the beginning of the thread and the Jermyn store and they don't have it.

    I am happy to tweak the specs if people are interested in the makeup if that will help this get done.

    Same size on the D82? I size up in this last, and if you do too, there is a pair at Axels: Link
