Absolutely. Most stores have a January 'sale' which starts either immediately after Christmas (if it's John Lewis or Selfridges), or in the new year.

Private sales in general are mostly BS from my experience, RL's private sales more so due to their policy of crazy price dumping in their prime outlets.

 

I issue a 'challenge': please guess what was the cheapest that price EG Inverness were on sale in the UK's RL outlet this fall? You will be surprised I guarantee

I have no idea - tell me. My wife buys stuff at RL occasionally, and received a card in the post about the private sale this week, so I thought I'd be helpful. Likewise Fosters texted me about their sale: I guess they have my number as a result of my having bought a pair of shoes from them once.

How much of a discount do the shoe stores typically offer after Christmas? I'm arriving in London on the 26th, and was hoping to pickup a couple pairs at around £200 a set.

ca. 10-50% with the majority about 20-30%. For £200 you won't get a good pair of shoes to be honest - perhaps in Cheaney.

Beware that many just sell seconds in the sales period.

I'm just looking for a shoe with quality on par with my Allen Edmonds. Is that not possible? I bought them 5 years ago for under $200 during an after Christmas sale...

i have decided not to say. It is enough that our  ebay friend "sausages" literally spends his life hunting for any good deals, I don't want to have to dodge Malphord, Ich and god knows how many more chancers, when i do it as an amateur on my work trips

 

Sausages is a real pro. The morning after I advertised some EGs for RLPL that he had missed the guy was already there asking for them only to be disappointed. 5 minutes later he came back all flustered having lost his car keys. I imagine he had to walk back home. He also holds the record for the fastest dash from Crockett & Jones factory shop's door to the shop floor itself, yes he actually runs up the stairs every Friday having arrived 30 minutes early i assume. A comical character all round except for the prices he charges.

 

PS: Hi sausages. I know you read this forum.

What was the outcome with the London sales in the end? I'm coming up later in the week and am looking for shoes. Any good deals down Jermyn Street or have I left it too late?
