I'll take some pics and post them in the main EG appreciation thread. Here's a run-down of what I purchased:
Asquith - Dark Oak Antique
Chelsea - Dark Oak Antique
Dover - Chestnut Antique
Nevis (boot) - Chestnut Antique
Left behind a Galway in Burnt Pine in my size. Also saw a 9.5E Galway on a Dainite sole in the classic Dark Oak/Mink suede make-up (I'm a 10E on the 82, plus I already have one Galway).
There were Dovers, Beaulieu, a Shannon in Black Calf/Black Suede (again these are all 9.5/10's). Not a great selection in the other size I checked - 6.5E. I had a list of 5 models for proxying on behalf of another forum member, but there weren't any available. There were only four or five rows in this smaller size, whereas the 9.5/10s covered four full racks of shoes.
I didn't check any other sizes as I wanted to leave enough time to get to Lobb and C&J. Picked up a black Hallam from C&J just before they threw me out!
