    I love my Galways and completely understand the appeal of the unlined shaft. I would like it even more if they did it in unlined shell ;)

    I'm not sure I can stomach the full US retail for an EG shoes but I am glad there are people willing to buy them. After all, it ensures the success of companies that would otherwise not be producing the beautiful footwear we collectively enjoy.

    Yes! and Yes!
    I’m not willing to give them my money in that way, but it’s fun to live vicariously through all of the ballers Instagram photos :worship2:

    And, they do as you say add to the evolution of this great pastime of ours.

    Whoa my man, you’re gonna cause a stampede if you start selling EG shell at around $1700usd. Good on you!

    Ill confirm the prices once available as prices of Horween shell changes constantly based on volume EG orders, and also depends what they got already in stock.

    I have asked for 325last so will wait until next week when they confirm me what they can do.

    Reg Pembroke I have asked today and been told is not possible with chestnut antique calf from the handgrade range. They can make them with either burgundy burnished calf, beechnut burnished calf or chestnut burnished calf from the mainline. See links below for illustration purposes

    I can also suggest EG Borrowdale MTO in nightshade antique calf :) for style and colour illustration links below

    Its all about the details and perfection. And thats what EG shoe is all about. If you are one of those folks looking for 100% leather perfection, 100% handmade and 100% work into details, look no further than EG or JL. Still though CJ price, style and quality = good product for right money. However difference between EG and CJ is huge when it comes to details. Have seen them both one against the other one and uncomparrable, hence price is skyrocketing :)

    After receiving my first pairs of EG, the one thing that really stood out was the emphasis on minor details and how it adds to a very calculated overall design. The shaft of the Galway is one area that I always find myself admiring on top of the overall near perfect finishing, of course.

    Thank you for checking. It's a pity that C&J said no. I do not want to give up on this unique makeup. What do you think about russian grain calf? Pembroke in Russian calf, here is the link for example of russian grain calf.
    https://www.crockettandjones.com/peebles-russian-grain/

    If Russian Calf is not of your interest, I would be interested in Pembroke in grain color, C&J has many fine grain leathers, maybe we can find the one that matches Chestnut Antique Calf color. Here is the digital sample of grain colors but I am sure C&J has more updated swatch book.

    Russian grain leather is exclusive only to CJ stores. Not even Mto available. Ive asked so many times in the past :/ I love the texture of russian grain, however they got limited supply hence keeping it in house :/

    Are you interested in scotch grain or in pebble grain(slightly finer)?

    I am more interestd in color that matches Chestnut Antique so either pebble grain or scotch grain would work for me.
