Justify buying a pair of EGs - Page 3

post #31 of 33
Mr. Will mentioned that the Edward Green shop puts shoes on sale in January and July. Have any of you purchased them in this manner? Does one rely on past catalogues? BTW, when Bergdorf discontinued carrying Greens I was able to get some for 1/2 price. I did the same at the Oxxford shop. I trust that as a public service that if any of this esteemed company know of a Green sale you shall let your brothers know. Thanks.

Yes. Bengal-stripe was generous enough to inform the forum a week or so prior to the last sale, and I immediately shot off an email to Edward Green requesting all shoes in my size that would be availble during the sale. I received a response with the list containg 7 or 8 pairs, to which I replied with which one I wanted, and included my credit card info. They reserved the pair for me and shoes shipped at the end of the sale. They typically have stock catalogue items but it's conceivable they may unclaimed special orders as well. If you do not recognize a model name, they have always been helpful in providing sketches and other pertinent information.

I'd dissent from this view and agree instead with another message above. That is, the richest people I know dress in nondescript fashion and appear as if they'd been asleep in the hedges for the night. (And on occasion, I know this to be true.).
Quite true. I know rich people who don't at all care about their appearance, and are quite happy walking around in polo shirts, khakis and sneakers all day (and these are not your thrifty "millionaire next door" types - they could shell out full retail on bespoke whatever and not bat an eye - but they would) and I know starving artists that forego sufficient food on a regular basis to wear Borrelli shirts. I also know examples of the converse of these cases. Let's just say that money and dress are not particularly well correlated except in what I consider exceptionally shallow company - I'm talking mostly about Wall Street salarymen and their British counterparts, who, despite earning well into six figures, are ultimately only just cogs in the wheel.
