medwards - I heard the same. And that the top-end line of EG is supposedly going to be even more money than Lobb's prestige line...
zjpj83 and Medwards: Is the new top-end EG line going to be RTW? And will it supplant or augment their current line of RTW and Special-Order? Medwards, you'd be interested to know that I pressed Susie Jones vis-a-vis waist beveling and got the impression that it would be difficult to accommodate in a standard special-order run. I forget whether she said that it could be done--at much greater expense--or that it couldn't. It sounds, from what you've said, that even the regular line will henceforth have a somewhat more beveled waist. To me that would really tip the scales strongly to EG, as I think that in every other way, they're better value for money. For me the biggest difference between EG and JLobb Paris is the phenomenal antiqued finishes on the EGs. I don't know whether Lobb can do the same if its requested, but my one pair of JLobb Prestige Line shoes--Westminsters--have no antiquing whatsoever.
