This is one way to get around re-soling. How much is EG charging now-a-days for that?

Think it's £165 could be wrong though.

That's not too bad. Last time I was at C&J they quoted around $200 for benchgrade.

Yeah the general rule amongst Northampton makers has always been to charge around a third of the price of the shoes for a recraft. That's why I say I'm not sure about the figure I quoted you.

Haha if I had that many works of art I'd be tempted to not wear them as well... thankfully I don't have that problem!
On another note, I am picking up my first pair of EGs - Dark Oak Dovers, any pointers for a soon-to-be-graduate? I know a rubber topsole/topy is blasphemy to some degree, but what are your thoughts on actually getting this done? I really want to extend the life of the soles. I'd also appreciate any other pointers regarding EG care smile.gif

I have probably 1/4 of my shoes with partial rubber soles or sole guards. Typically wear those on rainy days. For me, 'blasphemy' is too strong but I do prefer leather soles. Best advice for the soles not to wear out too quickly is avoiding getting them soaked. Walking a block where the pavement is one thing but soles that get soaked can be a problem. Hence my earlier question about re-soling smile.gif

I'm pretty sure that the photos that aportnoy posted represent only a fraction of his EG collection.

Those are the Newman right?

Cross-post with Recent Purchases: the Cucinelli overnight bag that I picked up with RLPL Ranell by EG. The bag's leather is a pretty good match with the burnished portions of EG's edwardian antique.
