John Lobb and Edward Green Jermyn Street Winter Sale 2011

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hi,

Just thought this would be of interest to some of you.

So I dropped by both stores today and inquired about their upcoming sales.

Like last year John Lobb's sale will begin on 28/12/11. It will consist mostly of discontinued lines (wouldn't give me specifics) in a range of sizes and expect 20-30% off. However he did mention to me that it was the smallest stock list he has ever seen.

Edward Green's sale begins on 27/12/11. I couldn't get any information on the lines that will be on sale but was told the shoes on are Not seconds and expect prices to be £480.

I received an email today from EG with a link to catalogue of some kind for the sale - unfortunately, I deleted the email when I noticed that the sale was for in-store customers only.

It seems EG are taking a different approach this year  in announcing what is available on sale as they are only adopting a walk in enquiry on the sales day. Its amusing i must say as CJ has their sales on the same day so gonna be interesting seeing that they are both on Jermyn street in London.

Foster have started their sale and have a wide range of shoes in sizes 8 and 8.5, did not check other sizes; although they are only about £50 off.

They appear to be doing it differently this year. Rather than the traditional racks of seconds, odd sizes, and mostly ugly uncollected bespoke, they seem to have discounted almost everything, albeit only by 10-15% or so. So if like me you were stealing yourself for the SF epic fail of paying full retail for something you really wanted (austerity brogue, black, 888 last), you stand a good chance as I did of picking it up for a bit less.

C&J (no.69) - tried on the Westbourne (benchgrade) and Clifford (handgrade), both were full price

C&J (no.) - nothing I liked in my size, they were all seconds

Big Green Monster - got two pairs at £450 each, Claverton (midnight blue antique) and Frome (black calf). Was looking for a cap-toe in black but only browns in my size, boots were tempting from £530 but have enough boots

Church's (Regent St) - nothing interesting, Jermyn St looked worse. Austin Reed have a small range at £215, which is worth considering if you want Church's

Foster & sons - same as pre-xmas sale, about £50 off shoes

Barkers - same as pre-xmas sale, highest price sale shoes were about £195 down from £200-something.

I didn't really see anything I liked today. Drew a blank.

They have Barker anniversary wingtip shoes in Jones in Jermyn St for £175 (RRP £375) - same shoe in Barker is £275 in the sale. Not bad if you're in need.

Everything I liked in Edward Green just wasn't in my size but prices (majority £440) were slightly better than I expected, shame I couldn't find anything. I even dropped by Ralph Lauren to see if they had any EGs, turns out they've really scaled back on sourcing from EG. There were about 3 shoes in total from Green.

I found it a bit odd that Crockett and Jones on Jermyn Street weren't having a sale but all their other stores were. I did pop by the Burlington Arcade store and they had a reasonable selection on sale but majority were seconds. I found their sale prices for seconds rather high, £320, as some of the shoes had major blemishes that just couldn't justify that price. Especially because their factory store sells seconds for less than £200.

I really want to check out the Lobb sale tomorrow but unfortunately I don't have the time. It would be great to know what the stock is like if you any of you make it down.

Actually the 2nds at CJ Burlington and Jermyn, were 310Pounds but that was for handgrade, they had some perfects at 330 for handgrades as well. Some of the 2nds were around 200 , so yes a bit more than the factory shop (which rarely has handgrade).
Also at EG most were 440 with some of the more expensive boots etc a bit higher. Not bad selection but of course you gotta be lucky to save 200 Quid on perfect stock!

Did a tour all along Jermyn street and the surrounds today and checked out all the big players. JL and EG had some sale stock, but very limited and mostly seconds, along with having £30 - £50 off their normal stock. Not massive savings but of you were buying a pair anyway! C&J looked like a normal shoe shop with racks and racks of sale stock seconds, some in pretty poor nick in my opinion for the price (plenty of scuffs in the leather or nicks in the soles). C&J (Jermyn) was also rammed with people and I couldn't be bothered to fight my way around the store, but their other stores were much quieter. I was after boots and really didn't see much to inspire, but if you were after some oxfords or derby's or similar you'd be okay (and plenty of monks in sales too).

Still, went to Berluti on conduit street and picked up a loverly pair of boots (no sales there!), so not at all a wasted a trip!

Cheers

Was keen to pick a Weymouth  but the only 1 available was a seconds pair which was creased and was selling for the similar price to other SALE handgrades. In the end i came away with a Randolph hangrade which was a sale item.

Am a happy bunny.
