I remember seeing a black EG Malvern that closed at 450, and those Cordovan Santoni that I was looking at closed at 500.

If I hadn't already bought the tan Mackays, I'd probably have gone up to 450 for the brown Mackays, but then I'd have been bidding against Ed and I'd agreed that I wouldn't bid against him (this time )

My Grant's arrived today

Pictures sometime this week, I promise. I think we should rename this forum 'Edward Green's anonymous'

Thank you sir but honestly, at this point the only Green's I can see myself paying above $350 for are the Grants. I think I have come to the concusion that English shoes are not for me, that I am more of an Italian shoe guy

ditto. The RLPLs I have bought at the Polo mansion came in crappy white box

With the large amount of RLPL shoes GVH is releasing I would expect the price to drop quickly.

We shall see.

My guess is that they don't have much inventory left. They certainly don't on www.grapevinehill.com

I think this shipment is going to dry up soon. My only hope is that they have a continued relationship with Ralph Lauren. This is probably the fourth or fifth shipment I've experienced, and probably was the most extensive to date in terms of RLPL quantity.

Quoting myself, that's fun.

Anyway, I found that the half-size-larger Camdens fit fine if I tighten the buckle to the smallest/tightest. It's a nice attractive monk shoe, the slightly rounded 89 last complements it well. (The 888 tan Mackays get better each time I look at them too)

I'm feeling Edward Green withdrawal. I haven't bought any in a year. I almost pulled the trigger on a Top Drawer special order, but Old England told me that was 1500 euros! Anyone want to give me advice?

NOTE of caution: I think that style of Grenson shoe runs small. I am normally an 8 in most shoes. I bought those exact shoes in an 8.5 and still think they are a bit tight.

Here's some advice. Commission a Berluti Bespoke copy of the EG you like, thereby helping the French Economy which has done so much for you
