New EG model at Leffot. Those would stay in my closet even if given to me. To each their own.
Getting too #menswear #pitti instead of classic British/EG look.
This is so bizarre. Had ordered a MTO Bamford fm EG a few months ago. They took a deposit and after 2 months wrote to say they had 'technical difficulties' producing the shoe and they could either make something else or refund my deposit. They also couldn't say when the technical difficulties would be resolved. I chose the refund. Now I see on the Leffot link above a Bamford in tobacco suede listed as an MTO dated May 2013. Fucked if I know what's going on.
Anyway, I ended up purchasing a whole cut loafer from Justin Shoe Snob at his low introductory price of 235 quid. The Bamford would most likely be better finished, slightly better materials but the dumbasses at EG saved me 500 pounds.
Thanks for posting....I was wondering what kind of problem it might be as the design looks really simple to me. BUt they wouldn't say.
I was just surprised to see a Bamford MTO posted on Leffots site dated 16 May 2013...that suggests it might have been ordered sometime in January 2013. But how is that possible if EG arent making Bamfords any more?
