    I have Nevis incoming, not Galway. Still working on what I want to have made up as my first Galway...

    So deep cedar is confirmed and this will be different from regular cedar? If so I'm in. Is the picture mh71? I'd prefer tg73 since it fits me but I'll have to confirm sizing and width for mh71. Just want a Burnham :)

    I thought college is "free" in Sweden

    @rydenfan I'm tempted to steal that galway makeup. Love the natural sole. Grats!

    We have not confirmed that deep cedar yet, there is new cedar color much richer than previous one.
    Well I can only wear MH71, TG is no go for me and so far 5 people who replied were fine with MH71.
    What width would you take? What is your usual G&G width?

    Color me "possibly interested", but I'm also an F width so couldn't be an early adopter anyway. I'll track the progress of this (and my finances)....

    Actually so far majority of interests is in F width and that may be a default order width and after we get 5 initial orders any other width ( D, E, G) can be ordered.

    OK, thanks for that. I'll track the progress, so keep me in "maybe" status for now, if you don't mind.

    Is this a fairly accurate representation of Bolet? Thanks!

    Edit: Is the WeTransfer link to the Bonafe archive dead?

    I'm agreed in that this is one of the nicest Galway boots that I have ever seen! Truly amazing!

    Wait so any other width can be ordered after the 5? If so then I may be able to consider. What is the most narrow that they can make without bespoke? Now I'm curious.

    Yes after we get first five in the same width, subsequent pairs can be ordered in any of available widths. To my knowledge G&G offer only one narrow option D width. From narrow to widest D > E > F > G.

    that is what i was concerned about. I remember either tony or dean telling me that they could of course make a last for me if we met in person, but to modify one to be narrow enough for me, was his concern. The EG 202 in a B is quite close because it fits like a US A or a little under but that right there means I probably would need a B or A from G&G unless you guys think otherwise.
