    A light tan loafer would look great! Below is a pic of a pair of my JL:

    @Leaves I have seen a gray color by G&G; is this available for MTO? Trying to decide if I want to go EG or G&G with MTO options.

    Patrik,

    Would you mind reposting either here or on your website all the various swatches (leather, suede, and grain) for EB? I can't for the life of me find the ones you posted in late December when the MTO promo launched.

    Thanks so much!

    Hey guys, this is a cross post from the EG thread. I need to nail down the sizing for my first pair of galways (so excited!).
    If I were a 8.5D in alden barrie, would going a UK8F be too much of a risk or should I stick to the usual UK=Barrie size rule (in my case a UK8.5E)?

    In my experience UK (for EG) = Barrie. This doesn't work for most other makers.

    I would order a UK8.5E in a Galway if you are an 8.5D Barrie.

    I really like those as well. I waver on whether on not to pull the trigger. I picked up the similar model from carmina so not sure how much use they would get. If they are there by the end of the week I feel my complete lack of self control will tumble even lower.

    Just to exemplify the guessing game that e-sizing is, I wear 9.5D Barrie and 9/9.5E on the 82 last Galway. The Galway is a slightly more snug fit, but a 9.5 would be too big (i.e. too long) for me.

    I really like calf\suede shoes. The only reason I didn't get these is because I already have a suede calf make up from Carmina and one on the way from EG.

    As long as we aren't the same size lol


    It's caught my eye for a while for sure. Beautifully done


    The calf/suede combo from EG that I love is the Harrogates. I just can't fit EG which is frustrating.

    Thanks gents. I'll probably pull the trigger in the next day or two.

    Haha, 9UK? I am most likely going to pass - I have lost track of pre-orders and mto's [​IMG] need to figure out what is coming due and when.
