    Difficult to say anything constructive about that

    In this thread we have boot lovers, country calf (argh..) lovers, ....

    The good people of EG spend their life trying to design and produce shoes with the best calf leather, nicest lasts, colors/antiquing (things of beauty like Edwardian antique, dark oak, chestnut ,etc) and all for what? .Boots and country calf. and lets not forget the US cordovan fetishists

    You guys are unworthy [​IMG]

    Most of the guys in this thread have multiple pair of EGs. Good to have variety in life.

    i assume my friend is talking about scotchgrain/CC in EG terms, which some regard as not on par with carefully treated crust leather and the likes.

    afaik, he is a big proponent of EG at least what he had to say about the differences between C&J versus EG.

    I managed to pop along this afternoon as well. There was no queue and only one other person in the shop at the time. Was disappointed not to find any ties that I liked but was able to get a shirt and my first two pairs of EGs.

    I almost paid full price for this shirt about a month back so I was really happy to find it in the sale.

    I'm really happy with the shoes I got. I went along looking for a pair of brown shoes and came out with something completely different.

    I then almost bought another pair in a similar colour to these but they were too small unfortunately but luckily for me they were restocking the shelves at the time and they put these badboys up. I just think they are amazing.

    I'd say that it's definitely worth popping in again if you've already been. The impression I got was that even the staff weren't 100% sure what stock they had in the back and were just bringing new stock out as they sold the shoes on the shopfloor. By the way, if you have small feet you simply have to go down. They had some amazing models in the smaller sizes.

    I'll pick up a jar of Saphir along the way. :D

    I need to start consulting across the pond so I can write something like this off. I wonder what the prevalence of shoe addiction is in London and Northampton...

    Go ahead and rationalize it anyway you want. :lol:

    I'm pissed because a friend who was studying abroad in London just came back to the states 2 weeks ago. Efff
