    There seems to be much less enthusiasm than previous EG sales. Don't know if it's the poor selection, prices, or both. Is everyone waiting for the `few oddments` after-sale?

    I found the selection is pretty slim this time.
    There seems to be a lot of shoes availabel in black. Is it because of the economy and people tend to dress more conservatively? Mind you, UK is a bit more conservative.


    Wouldn't there be less black shoes on sale if black shoes were in high demand? Not sure how EG determines which shoes come on sale.

    Both, and the economy, I imagine. Personally, there was only one pair I would have considered, and the discount wasn't sufficient to make me pull the trigger.

    Funny how that goes. I was hoping for a pair of Lichfield as they were the nicest Adelaides I'd seen. Then the list comes out and selection is pretty slim in my size. Quick search of styles I wasn't familiar with reveals that the Pelham on the 888 is actually exactly what I was looking for: a black Adelaide captoe without any medallion, punching, brogueing and gimping.

    Sure, discount might not be great given the current economy and compared to previous sales, but since they are exactly what I wanted for my wedding shoes/ultimate black shoes... Considering the odds that I'd get an opportunity to see a pair in my size on sale again... Guess I won't bother with the Loake MTO Adelaide anymore. [​IMG]

    You know I will! So now that I've got the shoes and wedding tie(s), just need to find/get my wedding suit and a couple of MTM shirts from CEGO.

    Saks in BH - has an additional 33% off on the few EG's that they have on display.
    They had a few pair of each in a mixed bag of sizes (7 up to about 11).
    They were listed between $850 - $900, so with the discount, you are probably looking at about $600.
    I noted the following:
    Cardiff - Nutmeg Suede
    Monmouth - In Dark Oak (i think)
    Ashby - Burnt Pine
    Westminster - Dark Oak
    Olney - In Black (a lot)
    Banbury - In Mocha Suede ( a lot)

    Thanks for the lists guys. Does EG sizing run similar to Lobbs? I just picked up a new pair of Lobbs at the NM sale in a 10.5 E and they fit great. I wear an 11.5D in most US sized shoes.

    Should I be looking at the 10.5E's in EG as well?

    I understand that the last can have some impact...I'm just speaking generally.


    I also wear US11.5D. My EG size is 11D.

    Here are some EG US11.5 shoes at a cheaper price.
