Really? Where was this? Loake would be very interested in hearing about that, especially as they've just increased their prices...

I've never bought anything from them yet, but you could try Colin White Menswear in Scotland, who seem to always have Loake shoes and boots at a discount.

Currently £193.50 for the Aldwych there instead of the RRP of £215.

Robinson shoes just ended their sale last week, and most base models were on sale (including the Cannon). 20% is pretty standard for english manufacturers (Sargent, C&J, etc...). Don't see why Loake would be any different.

Let us know what you think after a few wears... I've been interested in getting a black Chelsea, this was on my list of potentials.

It's unlikely that you would get more than 10% off an Aldwych as its a core style, Loake frowns greatly upon the discounting of their premium lines as with any manufacturer. You may find the occasional one either in Herrings clearance section thats been sent back from a customer or in Pediwears Ebay section that may have a slight fault with greater discounts. You can generally ask Herrings or Pediwear directly for a discount at anytime and you'll generally be offered 10% as standard. 

 

In honesty I think you're being incredibly cheeky trying to get more off, if you cant afford them then get a cheaper product or stump up the cash like everyone else.

Hey totally understand that's why I figured I'd ask. Only really got into these types of shoes recently and I've purchased pair of dark brown aldwyches for AUD435. Just thought that if there was the possibility of a discount I might as well take advantage of it.

What do you think of the leather? Being that it is corrected grain? How much in duties/customs/taxes?

Could you be more specific about this defect? As I'm struggling to see anything wrong with the shoe in your image?

post #1766 of 2390

Sorry Stemo,

 

The stitching, looks as if the leather got stretched. The holes are kinda visible near the overlap.

 

hope that makes sense.

 

Kind Regards.

Appears to be, yes... Looks like an Aldwych, so I looked at mine and no 3rd row of holes.

Hi SimplyStylin,

 

Thanks for your reply.

 

You are right, these are Aldwych. I have them in black and could not see the same stitching issue on them.

 

I just wanted to confirm with you guys.

 

Thank you for your response.

 

Kind Regards

Ahhhh yes I see what you mean now, this is a manufacturing fault although it's unlikely to cause issue (I didnt even notice until you pointed it out), it just depends whether you can live with it or not. If it doesn't bother you too much then email the retailer you bought them from as they will usually offer you some sort of reimbursement for keeping them. Otherwise send them back for a replacement.
