Edward green dover discounted? - Page 2

post #16 of 27
The Sale at Edward Green's Burlington Arcade shop begins next Thursday (24th June). They might, or they might not, deal with telephone orders for sale stock. You can always try: +44 20 7499 6377. (UK is 5 hours ahead of East coast time.)

In my experience, ordering from the EG store in London was slightly less (including base price, customs, and shipping)for a specila order, then if you ordered from a store (off the rack) in the USA. But I have not ordered from the EG store for about 1-1/2 years. If the shoe you order is stock it will be less then if made-up specifically for you. EMail of call London and ask them. Do an exchange rate calculation, add about 8 to 10 % for customs, and about $40 to 50 for shipping.

Good deal. Is the official color of those shoes "dark oak antique?"Thanks again everyone for the help. Much appreciated.

bengal - Thanks for the tip. I was able to email them my size and receive a list of sale models available (not very many since I take an F width). They have a Dark Oak Yardley and a Burnt Pine Plymouth, both of which are very tempting. Tax free prices range from £247.00 to £264.00. I wonder if there'll be more discounts as the sale progresses.

Although some 3 or 4 weeks into the sale most of the items still remaining are likely to be marked down further, I wouldn't risk it. If you like the style and want the shoes, I would get them now, particular as EG seems to offer you the pick of the crop before they hit the sales floor. It might be different to take a gamble on something weird and wonderful like a pair of special order shoes in raspberry-pink, size 12 AAA. My guess is that in good old Europe, F fittings might sell out quite fast. (Definitely faster than the D fittings, I'm likely to look for.)

I came to the same conclusion as soon as I posted my message. I reserved the Yardley which should go out in a cocuple of weeks. Again thank you for the info.

Smart move. The Yardley is a very beautiful shoe. Love those soles. Did they just have the one pair?

daytrader - They had two Yardleys in my size, one in Dark Oak and one in Chestnut. I took the Dark Oak and I'm sure they have more in other sizes. Nice shoes in the pics. Yours? I have the double Dainite sole on a Halifax boot, but I hope that the Yardley I ordered has a leather sole. Not that I would turn my nose up at a Dainite soled Yardley at these discounted prices...

Edward Green's "Yardley" usually comes with a single leather sole (as featured in the catalogue). I presume that the version with the Dainite sole was a special order; either for an individual customer, or a store ordered them with these particular specifications. I'm pretty certain the shoes you will be getting come with a leather sole. They would have mentioned it otherwise.

You are quite correct as always. They showed up today leather soles and all. Click for high-res:
