I di not see the Galway listed there...is this an MTO that involves a surcharge and a wait?
yes it does. just spoke to them.
Thanks for the great PSA! I'm looking to get my first pair of EGs, but am having trouble deciding on some options, and am wondering if and fellow SFers can chime in.
1) Galway or Alderley? I already have 2 pairs of rugged/casual captoe boots, but no brogues or wingtips. There's not much info on the Alderleys, but here's a photo:
2) Upper/lower leathers: a) chocolate nubuck/burnt pine, or b) rosewood country/antique nightshade calf? I'm looking to have something that can show of EG's burnishing the best and be versatile at the same time. Saw the nightshade color posted before here:
and according to Leffot's it's something like dark purple, burgundy. I have a lot of #8 cordovans and this looks to be different enough.
3) I'm size 8.5 on Alden Barrie last. Would it be right to get 888 lasted in size 8E?
Thanks in advance for your help!
Sorry, got linked here from another thread. Accidental post.
Thanks mate. Ordered a pair of Asquith for myself and a pair of Berkeley for a friend. Mark is super helpful in getting me UK 5.0 (yes, I have small feet) and the Berkeley in E888. Flush metal toe plates cost GBP 50 but considering I wear out the toe tips quickly it's money well spent.
what a great deal!! thank you very much for sharing this info!!
I have something *very* special on the way from Edwards
1) Galway. 2) b
Just ordered a pair of Inverness in dark oak (Mark arranged to get them for me in March)!
Please do share with us can't wait to see what you have ordered!
I pulled the trigger on two pairs. EG Galway in dark oak and GG St James II in vintage cherry...best shoe buying week ever
I went with the St. James in polo suede
That is a stunning shoe, maybe the best suede shoe i know of. Yet i can´t bring my self to pay that price for suede and i don´t think i ever will.
My research also led me to this one, which I got off the G&G site. I can't imagine it runs much far behind the best suede shoe in the world, whatever it may be:
