Neither have I, and I have acquired some 16 pairs in the last 3 years.

 

That is the beauty of RTW EGs, and why I rarely buy C&J Handgrades as they have been pretty hard to get at a discount in recent years.

Why bother with an inferior product (albeit by not much) when you can pay less for more

 

RTW EGs at a discount are the shoes for the discerning few :-)

EG does host (semi?) annual sales.

 

C&J handgrade can be have at a great discount when Barneys is cleansing their inventory.  Same thing with G&G.  Limited models.

Hi,

 

I have just acquired my first pair of EG, after 8 pairs of C&J. I bought them full price from the Jermyn street shop.

I am quite happy to join the club!

Like I said though, I think something may be off and don't want to get too involved with this, not untill there is a little more clarity from EG.
this sounds awesome Chris. Do let us know when it is a go. I'm interested.

another great thing about EG RTW is the range of  permutations of last* "model"* color*sole with special emphasis on attractive 'model'.

 

I have some 10 JLPs (Classic and prestige) and I have basically run out of shoes i would like to buy except for a Chapel. Many of the JLP RTW models are, to my taste, extremely underwhelming in terms of beauty. 

 

My greatest regret so far is not having been able to dedicate enough time and effort to find high quality italian shoes at realistic prices. I am not talking about the big brand names available worldwide but makers that lie below the radar of 'anglo-saxon' forums like SF and sell locally or to continental Europe . I am almost sure there are great things to be had there but the logistics are not easy

In the (highly unlikely) event this gets a go I'll let you guys know.
Somehow I get the feeling that this price list is not supposed to be 'out in the open' though and that if EG were selling their shoes at low(er) prices they'd be doing so from their own shops and not through an internet forum.

Here's some actual, as opposed to possible, shoes:

Since when does John Lobb Paris ready-to-wear belong to the (few) English bespoke shoemakers? Only John Lobb London belongs to that group. JL Paris (bespoke) also finishes black shoes with an all-black sole (I'm not sure about their standard finish for brown shoes.)

John Lobb (Northampton) has never had an all-black sole, but employs a 'painted waist' on their Prestige range. Anthony Cleverley and G&G Deco (at least in black), come with an all-black sole. Again. not sure about the sole treatment for non-black lace-ups and loafers.

The Brummell is one of their most famous designs. Great looking shoe. They did a special anniversary edition if I recall correctly.

It says "Brummel 120th anniversary" on the sticker in the first pic.

SK seems to currently have decent availability in terms of in-stock "popular" sizes if anyone should be interested ....

I have the AC Bodie in burgundy. It indeed has an all black outsole. nod[1].gif

This "wholesale" project beggars belief, but I am in for Westminsters, Sandringham, and definitely Dovers, as well as likely a couple more if it actually happens.
post #3285 of 13376

If this project takes place, I would order an Ecton (and/or possibly a Dover) in dark oak and a Falkirk color tbd.  I might be interested in ordering a couple more as well.
