Thanks! I live way too far away but I'm glad it wasn't online since I just paid full price for some Galways.
I may avoid this thread for a few months in case some sale happens that makes me feel dumb:)
Just kidding, of course. I couldn't take a chance on losing out on this make-up forever so even if they are eventually online for a cheaper price in happy with my decision.
Good luck to those who are near Northhampton!!

I tend to wear new shoes indoors for 2 hours at a time the first couple of wears to open the pores of the leather up. After the first couple of indoor wears, I'll start the mirror shine process. I apply a layer of Lexol conditioner, followed by Saphir cream and a base layer of wax polish on the first day of polishing. I'll come back on the same day after an hour or so after the base layer of wax is applied and apply 4-5 thin coats on the toe box and heel quarters, making sure to leave around 10mins drying time between each layer of wax. Usually come back the next day for the final few layers of wax and water. All in all takes around 3-4 days from unboxing to a comfortable level of shine, although actual time spent polishing is closer to 3 hours.

 

Key things for me have always been:

* To let the layers of wax settle into the leather

* Apply only a dab of wax thinly, in circular motions, with very light pressure from fingers

* Apply neutral polish for the final layer with a nylon cloth (glasses cloth; womens tights)

 

Apologies for the delayed response!

Honestly, I get very disappointed whenever we get a pair that should not have passed the manufacturers quality control. From my point of view it's 100% the manufacturers responsibility. Often you see issues that were caused early in production and instead of just removing that pair and remake it, it goes all through the production line without anyone flagging it. This is the case with several makers we work with. But in the end, the worker that packs the finished pair should have some kind of check list to go by in order to catch any sub standard pairs. This should not take more than a few seconds extra per pair with some training. It would save everyone in the supply chain a lot of extra work and headaches. You have no idea how much work it is to return a product to the maker. We just introduced a new QC program at Skoaktiebolaget to avoid shipping out sub standard goods but if the manufacturers could step up a bit as well everyone would benefit from it.

I agree you with on the above comments. But given how expensive the shoes and boots are is there a market in making seconds and reject? Ebay is full of them. I also try to go to the London sales and went to the factory shop once but the ebayers seemed to have that sorted.

About 300 GBP / 460 USD for the Oxford shoes (Which will never show up in your size and popular style-you can bet on that) and about 400 GBP / 610 USD for the boots.

Actually i have the opportunity to buy a pair of subs that were sent as a try on pair and the model is actually pretty solid. I am waiting to hear back as to the cost and i figured the good natured gents of the thread would have the answer.

Thank You Sir

Jump on those without a second thought .. I didn't have much luck at all for the past 4 months, though I am seeking their most popular styles ..

Do you visit the Factory shop often? Does the stock sell out quickly?

post #23248 of 28910

Actually I know a fellow who lives near the Northampton and is their regular customer (visiting the FS about once in a week/10 days). The shop is usually loaded with loafers of all sizes, however,  the popular Oxford and boot styles like Chelsea, Cadogan, Berkeley, Canterbury, Galway and Dover are really hard to find. At least in their 9.5 size, which corresponds to the US 10. And I am waiting on anything, Doak, Suede, Burgundy ..

I went to their factory shop last month when I was in England. If I remember correctly, the "New Old Stocks" were above GBP400 while the " Factory Seconds" were around mid GBP300. There was also a "Bargain corner" with some real bargain at GBP250 or below.

I bought from the corner a pair of Shanklin, a pair of Belgravia with metal toe taps, plus two pairs of shoe trees and a suede belt. Total costed me only around GBP550 and that is before VAT refund!
