Looks like it to me, also.

Small timer question here but would you know if that retailer has sales on their Edward Greens and when?

I have used Alden trees with no ill effects.

At this particular retailer (Robert Jones Menswear), I have never seen EG shoes discounted.  But their prices are better than those of the only other Toronto EG retailer (Brooks Brothers).

I asked about CIS event, and sometimes EGs are honored as part of the promo.

I use the Ralph Lauren one's - typically available from their larger stores. IIRC approx $50 - $60. Not the 888 Last, though they work for me.

Do they have small sizes (6/6.5) and can it be ordered online? I am not Stateside and usually your retailers carry much larger sizes.  I still envy the deals you guys get with Barneys and such.

First day it started to feel a bit like autumn in London today!

You mean at Brooks Brothers?  Seems like EG is pretty much always excluded from any promo, but if you ever get a solid confirmation of an existing exception, do drop me a note.  I just won't pay their $1500 asking price for shoes that sell for $1,100 - $1,200 just about any place else.

Yeah, their retail prices are a rip off, but they do have nice make ups. If you buddy up with a SA they will often apply discounts to excluded items.

Yep  I tried that.  I had an SA buddy try and get told that no discount could apply to EG.  They do have nice make-ups, though.  There are two shoes there (a tan pebble grain and a dark grey brogue) that I would buy today if the price were reasonable.  I just have an extreme allergy to overpaying.

I have a couple of Dainite already which I like and had never thought of the Medway. In addition, I've asked EG if they can replace the storm welt by a regular welt to give them a more sleek look. They're not sure yet, but have promised to let me know by tomorrow - when I'll have to have decided whether to go with the Medway or Dainite. What do you guys say? Any experience (positive or negative) with the Medway? I should probably add that I'll be using the shoes mainly for city wear.

 

Cheers!

SKM

 

Update: EG agreed to remove the storm welt and replace it with a regular welt, though they warned me that an indent probably would be visible above the sole, where the storm welt had been. Nevertheless, I took the plunge and got rid of it. Now there's just some waiting time to kill :sarcasm:

My pair of Galway boots arrived this morning, not taken a photo but they're on in the office today, feeling a bit tight but not in a bad way, just in a new shoe kind of way. I don't think I own a pair of trousers that these boots won't look fantastic with!!
