As far as I know, Lobb has 2 sales a year, one in Spring (sometime in March) and one in Fall, and they usually last 2-3 weeks. I'd be happy if there's yet another sale on top of those two. Last year I remember Santoni having a one day sale (also in March).
Thanks Rider... Already checked on the Santoni one day event...Sadly it's not going to happen according the salesman on the phone. Actually called today, he said they now contact there current customers as samples come in in there sizes... I asked what was considered a current customer since I have bought 4 pairs of Fatte a mano's and 3 pairs of regular shoes from them and didn't even get notice of the 2 week sale they had in January... I got the impression it's for a select few but he said to fax him my info and he would put me on a mailing list...I doubt I will ever get a postcard that they have a sample size 12 for me LOL... How deeply does the Lobb stuff get discounted? I thought I had read somewhere that they did a 1 day thing too but I could be very wrong... Thanks for the info... Foxx...Thanks for the bump too.
Lobb discounts 40-60% during the sales I've been to, which still means that their cheapest shoes are $400+. They usually have a wide variety of models but I've never seen the popular ones like the William, Richard, Jermyn II, Perrier, etc., unless it's in some odd color.
