I don't, but if anyone here hasn't yet received their EGs ... I'd recommend asking for a refund.
A few months ago, after reading Frank the Sheep's comment about EG and their relationship with EoM, I contacted someone I know at EG for more information. That person talked to Hilary directly, and confirmed that, indeed, there was only a small batch of MTO shoes left on order. I was told that after this batch was finished, they would no longer make shoes for EoM.
I was concerned, because Mark and I had talked about me possibly placing another order immediately after this one was fulfilled. I told Mark about what EG had told me, and he acted incredulous. He said he didn't know what they were talking about, and that he would look into it. I never heard back from him about the matter.
A couple of weeks later, after having not received my shoes, I contacted the person I knew at EG again and asked if he could check for me personally if my specific shoes - along with a friend's - were in that remaining docket, and if they're going to be made. Upon checking, EG confirmed that my friend's shoes were in this last batch, but there was no record of mine.
Now being really concerned, I contacted Mark and asked him what was going on - EG has now told me they were no longer going to make for EoM, and that there was only a small batch of shoes left, and that my shoes were not in that docket. I didn't hear back. I emailed again a week later, and still didn't hear back. I called and left a message. Finally, a couple of weeks after my initial email, Mark emailed me to say that they messed up and hadn't submitted my order to EG or G&G. He said he could offer me a refund, or proceed with the order, but that it would take another six months till delivery.
I still wanted my shoes, so I contacted EG and asked if an exception could be made. I explained that this store somehow forgot to submit my order, and I've already been waiting for them for almost a year. I said I would be happy to wait another year if it meant it could be confirmed - by them - that they would be made and delivered.
I was recommended by EG to just take a refund, which I took to be an indication that they really would not make anything more for EoM.
My friend received his shoes. I assume his was in the last batch. I don't know if that is an indication that the "final batch" I was told of has been 100% completed. My impression was that there were not that many shoes left in that last batch to begin with.
I received my refund, which included all the international transaction fees I paid. Mark said he would "look into this rumor that EG was no longer making for them." I told him my concerns with the seeming lack of transparency and mixed messages I was getting from both companies. I said forthrightly that it feels like EoM wasn't being totally honest about this situation, especially since EG kept insisting to me that they would no longer make for this store. Mark never sent me an email answering my concerns.
EG assured me that this must be some misunderstanding, and that EoM is an old and respected company. They said that whatever the case may be, they didn't think EoM would run off with my money. But with my credit card confirming that they couldn't give me protections on a ~8-9 month order, and the order totaling somewhere around $4,500, I didn't feel comfortable just waiting around hoping that they'd magically appear.
I don't know what the truth is. Perhaps EoM has a relationship, and EG has to lie and say they don't for some reason. I find that hard to believe, but who knows. Or, maybe EoM is trying to find another way to complete the orders they owe. Either way, I've dealt with EG before - for both RTW and MTO - and have gone through them directly and through their authorized suppliers. I've never had a problem and they've always been honest, clear in communication, and timely in delivery.
Except for this one time I went through EoM.
