An update on this. Just got notified by Edward Green that they are also looking to increase their prices, this will go into effect end of this week. But we will honor any quotes and prices until end of this month. .

I'm confused about this part. You're raising the prices, but will also honour the lower price until the end of the month. Does that mean the prices won't change on the website until the end of the month, or do we have to express interest in the shoes before the end of the week in order to avoid the increase?

Edit. I should let Patrik answer.

EG is increasing their prices end of week, probably it's already being implemented on Jermyn Street as we speak. We however will honour the current price levels until end of Feb. I believe in giving my clients a heads up before any increase in price, I think it's fair given the support, loyalty and good vibes we get from everyone on SF.

Just got my EG Dover mto in yesterday. Mahogany CC, double leather sole, 202 last. Directly inspired by @tifosi picks. Also decided to pick up the Inverness - hopefully arrives this week. The Inverness will be my first eg so I look forward to receiving it.

Sounds like a great makeup, NY! Congrats. Looking forward to seeing it.

This is why I buy almost all my shoes here. Patrick and company are simply the best. I might set some records this month with Gg EG MTO. Just did my tax return and I should get a decent refund.

I just passed the $1K boot price cap with my first Galway MTO.  But I agree with Tifosi that this price increase might price me out of the EG brand.  Might have to stick with Carmina, Alden, Viberg and the like.  That's such a shame because I was just getting into Galways.  On the other hand, as time goes by, one seems to tend to tolerate higher prices.  Thanks to @tifosi and @rydenfan for the multiple PM back and forth assistance on sizing.  I thank all the others who also chimed in on sizing.

 

-  Galways on the 64-last/veldt

-  Chestnut Utah

-  Dainite sole

-  Natural midsole

-  just for kicks, I requested Christmas red lining, although Gabriel said it might end up being darker red or burgundy.

Yup, the Dark Oak Galway was the reason I upped my price cap. Now if I wasn't an idiot and went ahead and bought 5 other EGs last year I might be able to tolerate the increase.

Idiot? You saved SO MUCH $$$$$!

Just emailed Skoak. Was going to order the shearling lined Galway but seems like I should just MTO something now.

That's a good way to look at it.

 

And I agree!!! Probably the cheapest they will be this year or ever.

Not sure if you understand how supply and demand work smile.gif
