Maybe a daft question, but wondering why those boots (and some.others) are called Dr. G ?

Ealdwine Morgan color 8, nothing fancy here, just good.View attachment 1507834
Looking good. I received my pair today and took them for a test drive, and they're fantastic. I'll get some pics after the rolls come in a bit. I could not be any happier with this makeup despite my earlier reservations about the 360 flat welt. They're THAT good.

I'm sure I will be corrected if I am mistaken, but I believe it's a reference to the Indiana Jones movie. The "Indy Boot" worn by Harrison Ford in the movie was an Alden Indy model 405. The original make-up from Ealdwine was a modification of this boot on Plaza last and in blue suede. The Dr. G refers to Matt Gray, the owner of Ealdwine. So instead of Dr. Jones it would be Dr. Gray. This new rare makeup plays homage to that.


A new Black and Tan version has just dropped as well.
