Agreed. I should have stolen your idea when I had the chance.

I recall reading in another thread that willow is back to being available!

I also saw that a retailer just got a makeup in Willow in, but I guess that doesn't mean that it wasn't ordered quite a while ago.

My year as Captain of the Club. You don't do the right job and you're snubbed, luckily I got a full house of the past Captains so we had a great night. Just back actually relatively sober and missed the trouble/mess likely to ensue....

Dovers and flannels.

I'll be happy to admit I didn't really appreciate the dovers until I finally got them and wore them around with a few different outfits. I fucking love these shoes and am considering what my next Dover is going to look like. Thinking light color pebble. Any thoughts?[/quote]

While I agree with your sentiments to a point, there is a bit of fun and adventure in not getting 100% of what you want...and at 50% off it's a bit easier to experiment...

 

I'm not sure I would have ever been 100% on a pair of midnight monks......For $1'200, no thanks...But at $600 they're  on my feet...and  man oh man  EG Oundles make for a nice midnight monk. Were they my first choice? No. Are the the most versatile shoe in my closet? No. Are they my favorite shoe? No. But they are a great shoe and I do like working them into my rotation. In addition, I have come to appreciate midnight & navy colored shoes (versus my majority of burgundies and browns)...

 

And to be honest...the same could be said with my tan EG Andrews...With only 3 pairs of tan shoes, tan makes up less than 1/10 of my collection..Tan is obviously not my "go-to" color...If I'm paying $1'200, there are a dozen models I might prefer over what I got for $600. But you know what? The EGs give me reason to work tan into my rotation more often.

 

While I wasn't 100% before purchase on either pair, I am 100% after purchase on both..

 

Of course none of this means that a burgundy Inverness isn't still on my hit list.... and of course all you EG freaks have gotten me Galway "curious". lol. It's just that I happen to find advantages to both side of the coin...

 

My non-100%er EGs......

Just curious if anyone has hit the after Christmas sale (the 27th?) at the EG store in London. How good are the bargains? I'd have to fly from Genève to get there so we're talking about a full days time (if not an overnighter) and whatever the airfare might be (about $250 round trip at the moment). If I can get a couple (few.lol) pair at half off it might be worth it, but smaller discounts probably wouldn't warrant a shoe run (only) on over to the U.K...

Well as long as that works for you that's all that matters. Getting stuff on sale can be pretty nice as well. However personally I find that I have a pretty good idea as to what I want. In fact getting something other than what I really want at this point would be just getting it to have another shoe or boot. I might have more shoes or boots this way but they wouldn't be the ones that I really want. In the beginning I had less of an idea as to what I really wanted and I didn't really know what was out there, but this is no longer the case. If I'm going to get anything its going to be because its something that I really want.

WoW, flying over from Geneva to London to buy a pair of shoes! normally people who own private jets make such trips.

Reminds me of the time I used to take every opportunity from my work to fly to Geneva to buy my Cigars .

The discounts at the London store are normally 25-30 percent in the sale, boots are down to around GBP 600 and shoes around GBP 450/550. None of the current models you will find in the sale and some are slight seconds or discontinued models.

To be honest if you are after a pair of nice EG shoes or boots which you like it is better to order them from an on-line retailer or the EG web-site.
