    So much hate that just doesn't quite add up all around.

    ^

    No Joe, the point is that you never bother to legitimately respond to any of the observations anyone here makes about your repeated vitriol whilst spewing more and, obviously, people are growing tired of it.

    You don't like EG? Fine, everyone is entitled to their opinion. Yet, you didn't even order the shoes that form the "basis" of your posts here. All we have is your "word" about someone you know having ordered and received them. Someone with far more credibility here then, sure, we're inclined to listen. However, you, out of nowhere, go out of your way to start posting in an appreciation thread about how "shit" EG and other english brands are based upon an alleged MTO received by someone else, whilst contemporaneously posting in other threads here about desiring to order some of the very english brands you claim are "overrated." How is anyone here supposed to believe that the shoe you complain about isn't a factory second picked up at the EG seconds sale and sent to you?

    Ultimately, nothing about your posts adds up and that tends to disincentivize regarding your opinions. Perhaps you and Fiddler can open your own shop.

    also, some of the people posting here have many, many EG's (evidenced in this thread and others, posted over a few years). unless we do have paid fanboys amongst us, as alleged, their EG fandom is created by long-term personal experience. i have no idea why EG can never make a pair to JoeGat's satisfaction, but to dismiss the other opinions/experiences as cultism is quite frankly, disrespectful.

    if someone bought 10 pairs of EG and they were all perfect, and posts about it on the internet, then why is that experience being dismissed?

    it's also rich that suddenly Fiddler's complaint seems to be dragged into this. his problem is with Leffot, not with EG

    New MTO with no issues. One of several new orders that did not require TD (not a swipe at anyone, just setting the record straight).

    ^^This is correct, I have no complaint with EG so far. This was my first pair of EG shoes and I was looking forward to them eagerly. What arrived was a disappointment, caused entirely (and acknowledged by) by Leffot.

    I think there are a lot of people on this thread who are either in the fashion retailing business or regular customers of Leffot, so I understand you defending them to the end. My point has always been that if you aspire to be a top-end retailer, charging top dollar markups, then there is no room for mistakes. Period.

    Saying you're sorry and making me trudge to the post office to make a return is BS. And Leffot still has not answered my question of who will bear the duties when the shoes enter the US and are held by customs there. Since they have a policy of declaring full value on merchandise, I have to do the same otherwise who will be responsible if the goods are impounded?

    Let me say again that Leffot has responded by saying that they will refund the entire amount of my purchase + shipping costs + duties I paid in my country. But it is still a hassle for me to go to the post office and waste 2 hours there. I would have been more agreeable if they had sent DHL to pick up the shoes from my place at their expense, since I had NO part to play in this mess. But that did not happen.

    Yet you guys are going on about 'hate' and 'vitriol' like I have some sort of agenda against Leffot. In fact I was interested in some more of their models when the time was right.

    I am currently in the process of finding a new place to live and move to and am up against the clock....so I just don't have the time to devote in order to rectify someone else's mistakes.

    So, why don't YOU give it a rest instead?

    This is typical of every single one of your responses - you completely ignore what other people write and stick to your own ignorant vitriol. Not to mention that your posts, including across threads, are completely contradictory. You "like" EG but call them "junk" in the same post? G&G is overrated but you whinge that the Bespoke owner won't message you back to facilitate your G&G order? As far as I'm concerned, you posted photos of seconds. Again, this thread is for those of us who appreciate EG - if you don't that's fine, but take your bullshit elsewhere because I don't think many of us are buying it.

    Seriously guys. This is getting old. I don't have a bone to pick in this fight, but why not move this to another thread?

    Hey, just writing to let everyone, including Leffot fans, miserable and un-miserable fucks, know that since my previous post, I have taken steps to bring the situation with Leffot to closure, so you won't need to put up with any more miserableness, spite, vitriol, bigotry, unpleasantness, whining, unreasonable demands etc etc etc.

    Could we turn this back into an appreciation thread, with pics, information and places to score (ideally on sale, for my poor ass)?

    If you feel you were fucked by EG or Leffot, state what happened, let nature take it course and then report back with the outcome. This way you seem less vindictive, and more informative-something I learned.

    An appreciation thread is the best place to bring up any discontent because most EG customers (existing and potential ones) will be there to see it. This is my thinking but you may disagree. I am all for looking at some great shoe pictures now.
