Hi everyone I've been buying EG's for about 5 years now and have spent about £15,000 all in all. I live close to the factory and have made regular visits there, BUT..............As of last week I've will not buy another EG EVER AGAIN. They are well made and beautiful but £800 (MTO) for a gemmed shoe with approximate fit is just robbery. I used to be a die hard EG fan and have defended them in these pages once or twice but believe me not only are the shoes simply not...

I'm not sure they will if they already look like this after 5 years. Hi Tibo I can give you a couple of definitive reasons that for the damage to your shoes, I'm surprised that the great gurus such as DWF11 didn't know this. Discounting any defects in the hide or in the tanning...
Hi I've been reading this thread with great interest. I live about 35 miles from the factory and make frequent visits when I have shoes on order. I have about 12 pairs of EG's that I have collected over the last 3 years (all MTO) I've got to know all the people at the factory especially Helen, Karen and Lorna in the office. I've experienced my share of bad service as is the norm these days including the poor service in the EG Jermyn st Shop. However the people at the...

This is still steep for the pair of shoes I must admit that the EG prices are slowly turning me away from their offerings. IMHO for those prices I am better off visiting Austro-Hungarians and getting fully bespoke shoes. Hi Yes the prices include VAT. I must say that specials (such as the Halifax) are being quoted...

HI I've shopped with Oi Polloi online for the last 2 years and all I can say is that they are truly faultless. I've bought stuff from them on many occasions, tried the item on and then returned it, they usually refund my money within 24h of receiveing the item back. Every time I've bought jeans from them they've had more than one pair per size. There are loads of very good online stores like this around now but they are still in my top 3 and I do most of my...
Quote: Originally Posted by Sander It probably is made more apparent by the light; yet I still think that this crease/deformation (whatever you want to call it) shouldn't be there if the shoe fit well. I'm a big EG fan and even with their superb leather there is a lot of creasing because their shoes are made so 'snug' fitting. However, I always though that the creasing is what gave the shoe its character and made it unique to the wearer as...

Well actually the Jodpur (Gresham) in dark oak are a double sole at the front but taper to a single in the middle. The Ecton...
