Ah, that is unfortunate.  My main purpose in sharing pics here on SF was to let folks know about recent purchases that I ended up getting because of what I've read in various threads; I'm very appreciative of what I learned here and very much enjoy my EGs. Because of the "Watch Appreciation Thread" I also ended up overhauling my (small) watch collection, so I post some pics there too.  But yeah, I have four watches in my collection right now and I already feel like I have enough.  A very personal thing, to be sure.

+1 for that.  Great work on that mirror polished toe.  I'm not sure I could ever get that to happen.

Apologize if this has been addressed recently in this thread, but what is the best practice for factory resoles, and expected turnaround time and cost?

Is it better to send to the factory yourself, or to go through your vendor if they're willing to do so? I got some of my EG's through Leffot (and have a pair on order with them), and I hate dealing with shipping/correspondence, so I'd like to take Steven up on his offer to facilitate, unless the consensus is that that's bad form.

Thanks.

gents, if I am a 11/11.5 E in the 202 last (chelsea) and 11E in most C&Js, where would you reckon I fall on the 606 last (dover)? 11.5E or so? I've read conflicting reports around sizing as some indicate 606 is identical to 202 in terms of fit and others note a slightly smaller fit. thanks.

No one resoles?

Ha - Give some time for us to answer. I am going to need a resole soon and I actually talked with Steven at Leffot about this a few months ago. He was more than willing to help out and facilitate the communication and sending the shoes to EG when the time comes. I don't think that was only due to the fact that I have purchased 10-12 pairs from him - I think he would do this for anyone.

Based on pure conjecture he might do this for free (not adding anything to what EG charges) if you originally purchased the shoes through him. I would not hesitate to ask him.

You can email the guy who runs the sales there and he'll try to locate them for you via EG. Assuming EG has them in stock they will honor the 20% off and VAT reductions. If they don't have them in stock then they will make them for you (MTO) less the 20% and VAT.

Since EG doesn't have my size in stock it will take about 6 weeks for delivery, but the price (shipped) of ca. $705 is less than I could get on ebay, if the shoes ever appeared.

Let the feeding frenzy begin (with apologies to those of you guarding your wallets).

Not bad at all... roughly what I paid for the Brooksville EGs on sale from Ralph Lauren
