    ^^ Wow, for some reason, the bamford still has its charms, even though the muppets at EG refused to make one for me.

    Did you get these a while ago or recently?

    Just received an e-mail regarding an "Exceptional Factory Sale" at the Northampton EG premises on Saturday 12th October, 8:30am - 2pm.

    Anyone else get this?

    Is this something they have done in the past - and if so can anyone comment on how exceptional previous sales have been? I certainly wish I could be there.

    Yes there was a similar sale in March. Prices were as follows:

    Standard shoes £460
    Dover £525
    Boots (Galway, Shannon) £545
    Nevis £610

    (minus 20% across the board)

    There was a very good selection. I picked up four pairs for myself and had a proxy list for some other forum members who I know. Ideally I'd have found some for those guys as I would have saved a lot of my own money, but alas the better selection was in 9.5/10 UK rather than smaller sizes.

    There's 1/16" difference in width between an E and a D - if you need a slightly snugger fit, but not a narrow -then the D is the way to go. If the E fits, wear it. See? :nodding:

    Fantastic. I'm wearing my e width Galway and this pair feels a little loose compared to my d width Oundles

    You guys have skinny feet. I am between an F and a G in Edward Green. I went with G for my first order.

    None of the English shoemakers (outside of Church's and maybe Alfred Sargent) seem to stock F widths regularly...

    Yes, I did get it but I am dreading there may not be a long mile queue outside the door! Anyone else going from London and want a lift in the car just send me an e-mail.
