RLPL Edward Greens for $325? - Page 9

post #121 of 481
I was able to place an order this morning for a size 8 but received the following customerassistance@polo.com reply 40min later:

We regret to inform you that at least one of the items you ordered is
out of stock and not available at this time.

Oh well. Saved some money...for now

Size 10 is gone now, too...

If these are the 2 tone shoes, you can have mine that I ordered last night for my cost + shipping to you.

I don't think they are the two-tone shoes. That picture was just posted as an example of the Tan Burnished Calf color, incase that is the leather that ends up being shipped. The shoes should be the wingtips that are on the site, it's just the color that is up in the air.

For those who missed out on this deal, as per my post on Saturday, Land's End has put its remaining Alfred Sargent boots and shoes on sale. Just check the Overstock section. Not as good a deal as this, but still pretty decent.

"ERROR. The item Corben Shoe in Tan Burnished Calf size 11 D is not available in the quantity selected. Please select a lesser quantity."

Over. Congrats to those who got in

I believe this is just the message received when one is choosing a particular size that has sold out.

I don't think you should assume your order will be canceled unless you get an email to that effect. Good luck, and keep us posted.

CANCEL ALL YOUR ORDERS!!!

(this is not a joke, sorry)

Dear Sir,

I received your email via our shop in London.

The Ralph Lauren Purple Label "Corben" is not an Edward Green model.

With kind regards
Helen Bateman

Explains the price. I'm not too familiar with RLPL shoes. Although I know some of their shoes are made by Green, why was it assumed that these particular models were EG in the first place?

The script on the shoe was consistent with all previous issues of Edward Green shoes sold under the Ralph Lauren Purple Label tag. The provenance of the shoes on the website is also listed as "Made in England," which previously limited manufacturers to Crockett & Jones or Edward Green. The toe shape is very similar to the standard 89 last favored by RLPL. Recently, Polo reorganized their production, reportedly commisioning Sanders & Sanders (Bengalstripe?) for their "benchmade" line. I wonder if the same has already happened with PL? Too bad, once I get a job and actually afford the MTO service, I won't be able to place a special order.

I think I'm still going to take receipt, since it didn't cost me anything for shipping. Will be interesting to see what they're like.

Because they're made in England, and because they're PL. EG makes (or has, until recently, made) the PL shoes.

That said, something is odd here. Even if we assume these aren't by EG, these shoes are still priced abnormally low. Every other PL laceup is $850 or more; even a change in supplier wouldn't spur a price reduction of $525. (I wouldn't expect any price reduction at all, even if the PL line were taken over by a much lesser maker.)

At the $325 price point, I'd expect these shoes to be made by the mysterious Italian company. But they're clearly made in England. And that doesn't make sense. Even the C&Js are significantly more expensive than $325.

So what's going on? Be interesting to see how this shakes out...

To add, I personally thought I remembered seeing PL suede oxfords on heavy markdown at the Mansion last November.

Who are they getting in place of EG? What might the quality be like?
