I thought I'd share a little pic of the others I was lucky to find on Saturday:

1. Piccadilly; unlined in brown english grain

2. Dover; mink suede

3. Belgravia; burgundy cordovan 😎

They're so helpful there, too. Highly recommend a trip at any time to the factory shop, and especially so during any sale promotion.

Oh wow - that would be amazing. I'm sure there were a couple more like that hidden away behind the door - I wish I'd had a longer look!

I've never had a top-drawer shoe from EG, so maybe this is the one and only I'll have 😆

Looks like the AC Bodie 2?

Agree, the “E OWN” seems to imply bespoke.

Awesome and curious pickup, congrats!

Amazing spot! Yes, I think that's the shoe.

I didn't get the lasted trees, but they were embarrassingly cheap just for the shoes and so I was more than happy to skulk off a very happy guy.

Wow. It's a good thing I don't live in the UK. I'd be at the factory shop every payday! Beautiful shoes, enjoy them.

I was very tempted to go to the factory shop sale but given I bought these just a couple of weeks ago meant that I'd exceeded my shoe budget for a good while now.

But honestly what a great pair of shoes this Piccadilly is, so elegant, so simple. They shined up very easily too, the EG calf has a very tight pore structure.

First time wearing them after they had metal toe tips installed at the factory (the work is top notch, much better than the London cobbler that EG usually use).

Are you sure those Belravias are cordovan? As far as I know, the tassels on cordovan Belgravias aren't braided, they essentially look like Greenwiches.

Ah that's interesting. They are a Factory shoe though, so possibly made wrong or something similar.

They are definitely cordovan - advised by a couple of the cutters and closers at the factory who were helping with the sale. At least they were priced, sold and bought as such!

They very much look like shell cordovan

I managed to pick up a few pairs from the Factory shop sale on Saturday to add to the collection, and one pair has got me intrigued.

It's a lazyman, which I know is not a current shoe, but the waist is quite different to typical EG, and the black sole is also something I haven't seen before. Likewise a slightly tapered heel.

They are boxed, which states the model is 'Bodie 2', with some measurement adjustment written also.

Anyway, they fit lovely, with a lot more arch support than normal.

Does anyone know anything about these?! They were pretty cheap TBH, but I like them.

Nice Anthony Cleverley.

I used to get emails about the factory sale but mysteriously, stopped receiving them…

Anyone know how I can get back on the good books haha?

Speaking of Anthony cleverleys, I just listed these guys. Man. I love these shoes. Unfortunately, I’ve been cursed with bespoke fitting shoes & have realized they don’t fit my feet. 😫

Also have them available in black, just didn’t have a chance to photograph them & they’re in a different location right now (I’ll be there next month).
