So, as with the last EG sale, I walked in for shoes and walked out with socks: the cashmere was reduced from £59 to £15, cotton and wool from £21 to £10.


As luck would have it, there was plenty of stock all the way up to 11.5. The only Dovers I saw were in dark green suede, which were available in various sizes. To be frank, I'm not sure I would have bought those even in my size. There were some very nice split-toe loafers available, if it's just the hand-stitched apron you're after.

£460 I guess is sitll not too bad. Last time I was quoted for stock non-sale with VAT excluded was £680 but including trees. Still a couple hundred saved I guess with this current sale...

I'd echo what's been said.

Choice not that great. Not a great deal of choice in UK 8. Spotted some olive green wingtips which were very nice but sadly none in my size.

£460 not too bad if you find a pair you've been hankering after for a while.

Sorry, should have said pre-sale price was £660 in VAT. No trees.

 

I agree with Malford, £460 isn't bad if you're lucky enough to find a pair that you wanted anyway. Can't really get them cheaper than that from the horse's mouth.

 

Apparently more sale stock coming in early next week.

I recall a black plain cap toe ("Chelsea"?) on the thin Thames rubber sole. Would make a very versatile work shoe.

 

There was a wonderful reddish-purple full brogue on Dainite in 11. I don't know if EG uses Cordovan, but this looked very much like it.

Has anyone tried to contact Mark at Edwards of Manchester recently? I've emailed a couple of times in the last 10 days or so and haven't received a reply.

Thanks for the reports guys, I'll maybe pop in at the weekend when I'm back in town. If anything caught the eye in a 9.5 feel free to let me know.

With regards to cordovan, they had a boot at the weekend. I think it may have been the Alderley, but can't fully remember. I'd previously seen a derby too, I think.

Anyone can keep an eye out for 6.5/7E? Curious as to their selection! smile.gif

EBay score for a very reasonable price. On the 202. They appear to have been worn twice at most
