    How about a pair of EG Silverstone chukkas? I am open to leather & last suggestions, but I will favor some crust over country calf. Something in a darker color maybe?

    Hard for a EG Chukka to get traction, it seems all focus is on Galways and Dovers.

    That's because they are so damn pretty!

    I'm willing to branch out to an Alderley.

    Is that right on the 80267? Carmina is doing museum calf too now? I would definitely pick that one up - perfect brown dress shoe for me.

    Is the U wing boot a balmoral or derby boot?

    There will always be a Galway and Dover focus on the forum :)

    Trying to get people to branch out, but if not i'll just go it alone. I love the half lined shaft of the Silverstone and Arran, the pair i tried on were very comfortable and flexible. That is next on my agenda for sure...

    It only takes one good makeup come to fruition to sway people. I've been lusting over the BB version of the silverstone for awhile.

    I think it would look great in hazel antique or bauxite.

    I chose some of the less conservative EG calf colors. Some like'em some don't. Skoak did a Westminster in bauxite, which is a standard model, no MTO charge which has me tempted. StevenT at one point had an Alderley in hazel antique. Funny how a few pictures stick in your mind when you have a shoe habit.

    Alderley looks fantastic. What is the estimated MTO price for that on Dainite and a stock leather?

    Anything besides the Galways have dainite or rubber soles?

    Awesome looking lineup.
