Sometimes you need a little color.  Let me know if you have any questions.

Great collection! I really have to say EG's burgundy is a thing of beauty!

Same Shannon this week. I meant to wear my blue ones but I was in a rush and grabbed the wrong pair:

Very Sad...Any idea what or if another brand will be replacing EG?

skyvalet has/had the most unispired collection of EGs I have seen anywhere. Even big chain brooks brothers has a more interesting, albeit also more expensive one. Unipair is another example of a store with very good offerings.

edit - nevermind, their is hope, they have a pair of galways as their EG icon

I'm hoping that Sky Valet has enough stock so that I can determine my size in several lasts, specifically the 888 & 82. They also have a few Carmina styles, so I'm going to see what size I wear in the Simpson last.

In Sky Valet's defense, they carried Edward Green shoes before many other stores existed, e.g. LeatherSoul and Leffot. The range carried by Sky Valet was/is very narrow, but they sell in DC without a material ecommerce operation; DC is a sartorial wasteland where EG's price tag and styling simply will not fly with many potential customers. In general, it's my observation that DC is not as robust a market for menswear as other major US cities. If Sky Valet had diversified their range, I am skeptical they would have seen strong sales increases. Furthermore, why are people so obsessed with special store makeups? You are always welcome to place a MTO or Top Drawer order through any EG retailer.

why? why would anyone want to pay a premium and wait 6-12 months for a model that another retailer may carry?

I have no objection to the models Sky Valet carried. Models like the Dover, Chelsea, and Belgravia, while more conservative, are hardly boring, IMO. Perhaps those who object to such an inventory are looking for models like blue boots or olive boots (Unipair) or Berry or Clove Suede (Axels). Different strokes for different folks, I guess.

Namor, 

 

If another retailer carries a makeup one wants, then by all means one should order that makeup. I recognize the allure of special in stock makeups.  However, there is something fun, and possibly even more special, about placing a unique MTO, particularly if you have fit issues, or are a former bespoke customer. 

 

I have multiple MTOs (including Top Drawers), stock models, and store special makeups. Yet, I want to point out that in my experience, retailers will regularly waive the MTO fee or include shoe trees and/or other sweeteners to offset the MTO fee partially or wholly. 

 

As for the wait, I have no idea what the current turnaround time is for EG MTOs and Top Drawers.  I think the delivery time does fluctuate greatly.  But patience is supposed to be a virtue. Cheers.

Yes - the Inverness in burgundy antique. They were returned. They were damn near pink. Not for me.

Turnaround at EG seems to run 4-5 months.

Sky Valet is clearing most of their EGs at $875, is that considered a low price for a pair of Beaulieus in Dark Oak?

Almost everything they have is out of stock. Call them and don't use the website if you are able.
