Quite a few in 9E (saw one guy getting some Astaire's at £350 which looked very nice!), mixed bunch of the seconds/samples that were starting at £350 - lots of bigger/smaller sizes as you'd expect. Good range of sizes for those starting at £500.

I tried these on twice. Love the but it just seemed they came up very big on me. I tried another shoe in the same last. Also felt too big. Thought it was me so I tried something in my usual dg70 it was a perfect fit. I was so close to buying just maybe the last is not good for me either. If anyone is interested I can verify they are pretty much perfect stock.

I think this sale was great for perfect stock/end of the line etc. not so many rejects or odds unlike the last sale. Was tempted a little by some perfect stock but not my ideal colour etc and I don't fancy spending £500 on a shoe when for a couple of hundred more I can have exactly what I want. so just 17more trips to saville row to make my mind up now!

Agreed. £500 is just not enticing enough to settle for second best. Also at that price, i dun think it is worth a proxy.

God I love that I'm not the only one who pesters Stephen, Thomas and Neus! wink.gif

Yeah - this sale was not one where the price justified compromising a little on size, or on last, or on colour on a shoe that I'd be willing to buy full price anyway. I'm glad I got the Thorpe at a discount, as well as the Monaco, because neither style is one that I'd sacrifice a full-price Mitchell/Cambridge/St James for (stone me for blasphemy as you will), yet I love them both.

Do wholecuts stretch out more than normal shoes?

Yeah exactly the same experience as me, I convinced myself they were the right fit, but in reality they are probably half a size too big for me, gutted though as I loved them!

Happy to oblige on both counts. First Thorpes. This is taking me into a whole new G&G world.
