1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    But to your point I would never own an EG Shannon. Too formal for me

    This is the standard Galway in Dark Oak and Walnut CC, goes extremely well with jeans.

    The Midnight Blue Calf and Navy Suede works well with jeans also.

    That boot on Dainite is close to the perfect boot in terms of style and versatility.

    Yep

    Both of my Galways on the 82 Last are on the Dainite sole.

    The Galway in Zug like @rydenfan is on the 64 Last on the Ridgeway sole. The 64 Last is a more true country boot.

    Thanks, guys for stoking the Galway itch. My first leaning is something more along the lines of the 64 last. The 82 last is very definitely a very classic shape.

    Something is country calf on the 64 would be perfect for you. Rosewood is the most readily available version but don't hesitate to MTO exactly what you want through Skoak. Outside of the wait times, it's a pain-free experience

    Oh yes!

    My next Galway will be on the 202.

    The wait time is what it is, but then again your getting exactly what you want. So for me it's worth it, and besides your getting something that should last for a good long time.

    Absolutely, next fall/winter season for sure.


    Will see what I can do. We are hoping to actually build our own small studio nearby the shop, we'll have some more freedom and time to set up everything as we want then.


    Thank you my good man, very kind of you.

    Totally forgot to tell you guys about our new Carmina Fur Lined Tärnsjö Jumper. But I hope most of you guys are already aware of this style, if you follow our Facebook or Instagram. Still a few sizes left.
