Here are the pictures from Friday morning. I got there about 10:30 and there was no one. By 10:50 there were a couple of us, less than 10 but the crowd grew a bit later on about 30 minutes later. I did see a box of £35 shoe trees, but there were no indication of sizes. It's a mix of OldStock £500 and FactorySeconds £400, I didn't get any as choices were limited in my size. However I think size 8 has the most selection. 

 

I only managed to snap a few pics so I may have missed out a few sizes 6s and 11/12s..sorry guys. 

 

 

Size 10.5

 

 

Size 10

Thanks for posting the pictures. I noticed that size 8 had double the amount too.
Shoe trees were in the white boxes underneath the shelves (piled up on the floor in size order).

Go back and snap the 12s, godammit. I'm sick of this sizism.

For context they were £150 cheaper at the factory sale earlier this year in Northampton and I believe the regular seconds price is £50 cheaper.

I suspect you are paying a premium for the ease of shopping in London, so I'm glad I didn't go because the factory shop is much easier to get to for me, but the rows in my size (8) do look tempting!

Bought a match belt for the Beaulieu. Extra shoe trees for £35, polish for £6 (only neutral, black & brown available) and extra shoe bags. So far I'm pleased but I was hoping for more bargains.

Btw the shoetrees in the white boxes are full priced, whereas the older ones are unnumbered, piled in a massive big brown box. Wasn't even sure if it's D/E or E/F etc. Just had to try if it fits the shoes.

 

 

Was told they have different companies making the shoetrees now and they have used different wood.I can't remember which is which. 

New on the left and old stock on the right.

I picked up new style shoe trees in the white boxes at £35.
I must have got lucky if they've now changed these to full retail.

I'm drooling over the size 8 selection. Wish I had a trip to London booked in the near future. I've been to Northampton and quite enjoyed the trip. On a few pairs of EG it would certainly be worth it.

My Chelseas after a long day.

My lucky sale boots.



Out of interest what do people use on this leather, just creams? Cheers

Totally redundant.  He needs to sell me that Bauxite pair. :D  Great boots.

Excellent photos of the sale - thanks.

 

How much did you pay for the belt? I bought an EG belt a few years ago and find them to be very well made and finished. Yours looks a better match than mine too.

post #27749 of 28900
Thanks! Got the belt for £50. How much are they usually?
I didn't spot it initially until another chap picked it up and put it back on the shelf. The match was spot on side by side smile.gif very very pleased

Anybody else got a good deal?

That was an excellent purchase.

 

I paid £190 from memory two years ago when I ordered my Lowndes.
