G&G Walkton in Vintage Oak/Polo Suede:
G&G Hove in Oak Hatch Grain:
...we're still waiting on Thorpe in Rustic Arran Garin that has been delayed in production.
Yeah, it was a feeding frenzy. I had to wait in line for 30 minutes. It was well worth the wait though.
Morning all. So I have just returned from my visit to the sale in London.
Arrived just after 8am and queued for just over an hour before getting in. Queue was not horrendously long but with the event taking place in a tailoring house (in three small rooms), a limited number of people could be let in at a time.
Beautiful, beautiful shoes as one would expect. However when I arrived, as opposed to sizes being displayed together, it was a mish-mash and down to you to search around the boxes in the room and hope to find your size (apparently upon opening time it was organised but boxes soon get moved around).
I managed to find two pairs that were in my size (9E) and purchased them both. Will post a picture a little later on but were a Grant wholecut and Connaught wingtip. I don't believe there was a 'max number per person' so some popular sizes might get cleared quickly if someone was to buy in bulk. Was excellent to meet Tony and Dean too who were extremely helpful.
Apologies to those of you who have asked to proxy but at the time I was there, it was quite manic and would have been difficult to rummage around for different sizes / styles.
Good luck to anyone else attending the sale.
As an aside, Everest had a lot of shirts (£20) and ties and pocket squares (£5). They had a small amount of jackets (£50) and suits were going for £75 (absolute bargain if they have your size). However, unfortunately most of the suits had been taken.
