Jcusey - To be perfectly honest, when I ordered my first special order pair (the cardiffs), I was expecting an upcharge. I was pleasantly suprised when they arrived with a 695 pricetag. Subsequently, upon ordering the banburys, I certainly expected a price higher than 695, considering the extra material involved in making boots. I went to Richards to pick them up, and once again, pleasantly surpised at the 695 pricetag ( the only downside of the banbury boots was that it took 17 weeks to get them, instead of the 12 weeks that I was expecting). I ordered the halifaxes on Jan. 22, with a double dainite sole, in walnut country calf. The lady who I work with there told me they would be 695. Perhaps she was mistaken, or assumed since the other pairs i ordered were 695, that these would be too? I guess I will find out soon enough. On a side note, is the hand sewn apron on the Halifaxes similar to the apron on the dover? If it is, I assume the boots will be 750, which is what I paid for a pair of Dover's at Richards last year. I guess the moral of the story is that the price of Edward Green's really vary. But one thing is for sure, dont buy them at Jay Kos, unless you have money to burn.
