    Excuse me for bringing this up again. But am I the only one in this thread that lives under the impression that good shoe seconds cost closer to 450-500 GBP? I am convinced that people have stated this in this thread several times before. The reason was supposed to be that EG a couple of years ago increased their prices for seconds to try and stop all the eBay seller (or so I've been told).

    This is all very confusing...

    Sadly I find these type of post can be so misleading to the general public.

    Sir, to clear any confusion all you have to do is, buy a ticket and fly to London Heathrow, then get a train to central London, change and take a train to Northampton, then from the station take a taxi to the factory shop, buy your shoes and return back the same way. You will know all the prices and you will also be able to choose for yourself.

    My only advice is to make sure they keep your shoes a side for you if they can do something like that otherwise it may be a well wasted trip unless you then plan to visit the shop in London and buy your shoes.

    I only know of one person who did all this but he rented out a car from the airport and drove to the factory just to find absolutely nothing he liked were in his size, make sure before you go they have what you want.

    The two times I have been to the factory shop I find it is all a matter of luck. The other thing I noticed is that some of the people there were walking out empty handed just because they said they could not find any cheap bargains, God know what they were looking for!

    E-bay is still full of EG shoes for sale so if there is was any price increase it has really not made any difference.

    RE: factory shop

    My return train ticket from London Euston was just 12 GBP. Purchased a week in advance. If you're flying to London just to shop in Northampton there are fairly cheap buses straight from Heathrow.

    I'm cheap so I walked to all the factory shops. Didn't take cabs or anything. It was just fine.

    I'm pretty sure you could just show up at EG without an appointment, but definitely worth calling beforehand. Lady said people visit every day. I ran into Japanese enthusiasts at every single shop.

    Its been a while since there has been any talk of Galways in this thread. Too long, if you ask me. So here goes - pictures from today. [​IMG]

    Can anyone give an indication on how the 184 loafer last fits compared to the 888?

    My Westminsters in 9.5E/10 on the 888 last fit my feet like gloves (and they're so snug I can't do the buckles up to the tightest hole, and in fact generally only do them up on the most relaxed hole), so I'm wondering if I can just get the same size in the 184. My understanding is that most EG lasts fit fairly similarly and that the 184 won't be smaller than the 888, I'm more worried about it being too much wider and having heel slip.
