    I thought it might be nice to run a thread for Edward Green enthusiasts. I am particularly interested in where people go to buy EG shoes. Now, to be sure, there is no doubt a thriving MTO culture, but if you know your size and are just starting to build your collection , RTW is a more economical option. (And as an instant gratification buyer, there is no wait!) I am surprised how few options there appear to be for RTW sales. I thought we could all share what we have found, particularly with an eye to online sales. It would be great to do this with a range of brands.

    Sky Valet in Washington DC. A nice selection of styles and a good price point at just under $1000. Have on line sales.

    Suit Yourself (aka Fairfield Clothiers in CT.) Similar to above. A half dozen styles, just under $1000. A few styles in the shop that aren't online. Have on line sales.

    Aside from the occasional sales, the above have been the best prices I have found for EG.

    Leather Soul. Nice selection. Around $1100 ( don't know if that includes trees). They don't really push on line sales, so you have to contact them for size and availability. Tom is great to deal with.

    Leffot. Similar to Leather Soul. Nice selection. Just recently developed an on line store so you can check for availability.

    Stanley Korshak. a few styles available. On line sales.

    Brooks Brothers. Have added a few styles to their catalog. On line sales.

    There have been others that have come and gone. J. L. Powell had a nice collection, particularly of boots, but the fact that they ended up discounting them into the 600-700 dollar range suggests they weren't moving at the 1,300 they originally asked. They have not apparently restocked.

    And to get the EG pron underway:

    LS and Leffot are great. Also, ordering direct from Jermyn street can often be much cheaper depending on the exchange rate. They've fixed the customs issues too.....

    Nice selection, but sizes are pretty sold out. Hope they restock.

    On the subject of exchange rates, I noticed that Platinum AMEX members no longer pay a currency exchange fee. That will save you 2%-3%.

    :nodding: I work in a very casual workplace and have a foot that is hard to fit. They also feel more comfortable for some reason......

    I have my shoes maintained @ Sky Valet. Great service and support from the brothers that run the place!
