thanks for the input guys! Sky Valet in DC looks to carry EG... might drop by and see if they have any 6's in stock for a try.

True. I was just there and stock is very low. But prices are good ($850) for all models they have on hand, and they are fantastic people. Worth stopping by just to chat about quality shoes. As already mentioned, they have CJ, Carmina, Alden, and Loake too if you're so inclined.
That reminds me, I need flush metal toe taps.
I'm going to Northampton in two weeks and got an "appointment" to check out EG's "rejects" inventory (as they referred to them on the phone). Has anyone visited recently and knows the average price of their calf offering? I know Tricker's and John Lobb factory stores are good for bargains (with pairs often under 200 GBP) but I've heard EG sells its seconds for prices just short of retail. Can anyone confirm?
You can pay anything between 250 400 GB£, what else you need to know?
You doing the Mecca tour?
Thanks for the quote. The few blog articles about "the tour" rarely bring up prices. Regarding the "Mecca tour"... I'm mostly interested in country shoes that can deal with NYC's winters. Going to start early in the morning with EG, then Tricker's. C&J and maybe Lobb if there's time.
EG will give you a luke warm welcome but if you put the charm on she will warm to tepid!. Lobbs will give you a charming experience but rarely country. That said all shoes are marked up differently price wise and you may win through.
I'm down once or twice a month so if you need a steer just shout.
