I was just comparing the huge distance between the prices.


So, I thought it would be good both for the EG Factory and us a buyers to allow us to order their Rejects via the Phone, like John Lobb is offering and not just once in a year at pop up sale.


But I guess they have their own math. Perhaps it's cheaper to just lease the Gallery space in London for a 4 days and try selling as many rejects they can than to pay an employee for a whole year .. But not so good for us buyers ..

£480 is not really quite steep for rejects! And I don't think JL is worth 80% the premium over EGs

Sorry I meant it I'd quite steep for rejects.

In that case, might as well throw my hat into the ring.

Looking for a proxy for westminsters or galways in 7.5 UK E width.

Yes, I agree.

However, if there's a specif style or leather in JL you really, really like than it's still worth buying their rejects for 480 GBP compared to their recently increased prices in Jermyn store and shoes from a non prestige line that now cost 735 GBP.

There's still around 260 GBP saving on a pair.

picked up these Mocca Suede Chelsea's from the sale today

 

a couple of the regular Jermyn St staff recognised me and were very kind helping me find stuff in my size (202 7F)

 

have been thinking about picking up a pair of suede shoes, so figured why not for £295. was hoping to see some Galways there (i can wear the 64 last in a 7E which is a slightly more common size) but no such luck

I've always had difficulty with suede balmorals. For whatever my preferences are I can mix other dressy/casual combinations but I've always had a hard time with suede balmorals...

Suede bluchers though... smile.gif

Thanks. They're Clavertons and I don't recall if they came that way or I had it added. Pretty sure that's how they come. But I couldn't remember if I threw out some old speakers so I ordered new ones.

Ah, there shoes! My initial association was they were boots (kinda telling for me). Never saw them in CC before; I've seen them in suede.

I share your thoughts on suede oxfords.

Now that the dust has settled, time to enjoy the victory (and the pain)
