    Yeah, I really don't care for winters, but early fall isn't too bad. With my Dovers due to arrive within a week, I'll only have the Falkirks on order for now. So although I'm trying to be good, I'm already looking for the next one. LOL

    Love the color. Tempting but 4 might be pushing it.

    Skoab has so many split toe makeups lol. Doak Dover, CC Mahogany Dover, Oak Hatchgrain Hove, Willow Dover, and now Kudu Isham. And that's not including the boots... @Leaves must have a ton of split toes in his personal collection.

    I like the texture, but the split toe makes me thing that the leather might be too thick for such a detail. Maybe on a plain toe or something similar?

    How does kudu compare to GG highland grains, as far as hand softness and flexibility?

    UK10 bruh. I already had the Carmina x Epaulet Greeleys in UK10 Forest and the Oscar fits pretty close. Carmina lasts are hella comfortable

    My turn for a sizing question: how'd you size your EG Galways in the 64E last, half down or full down from US? I got a size 10.5UK coming in (wanted to get the skoak one, but tropical asian countries aren't nice for shearling linings so found an unlined one on eBay) and really hope they fit.
