    Yeah, I'm kind of disappointed. Loved the outdoor photo from the last batch. Hope the pair I ordered is lighter in the next batch.

    I think it's always been that way like a box of chocolate you never know what you going to get.

    Both of these were DOAK.

    i was actually a little surprised when obama didn't bring it up in his state of the union speech. i thought it deserved at least as much time and attention as US foreign policy. just another example of a politician side-stepping an important issue

    ^ Haha

    I'm loving that black Newbury wholecut. Had my eye on the Carmina wholecut because I love the Rain last, but the eyelet holes don't look nearly as clean as the Newbury's. Nevermind the beveled waist on the EG pair.

    Is the EG black calf noticeably nicer as well?

    Yes, I realize we are talking two totally different tiers of quality. I thought differences would show with more exotic finishes and construction.

    I hear you. For some reason though I like it better in pics than IRL. I have seen it look too orange and also too washed out. I prefer Edwardian for a lighter EG shade

    If I want to go light I would rather edwardian, if I wanted darker I would go with hazel or doak. Much like bauxite it is color I would be hard pressed to reach for.

    I didn´t used to like edwardian. Then i bought a pair of Galways in that color and now i think it´s so great!

    Honestly I'm thinking of getting a bronze and black cc galway because of the doak issue rather than burnt pine. They really need a color between burnt pine and new doak.
