    Expect that they will have been cleaned out and making an appearance on the Bay in the next 12 Hours , ( By the usual suspects) at grossly inflated prices...

    Yes I was there, 20th in the queueing system at 9am! I still managed to pick up 4 very nice pairs as there was a very good selection in the 9.5-10 size range. EG are now enforcing a limit of 5 pairs per person, so one would hope that this puts paid to the eBay bulk buyers.

    I'll take some pics and post them in the main EG appreciation thread. Here's a run-down of what I purchased:

    Asquith - Dark Oak Antique
    Chelsea - Dark Oak Antique
    Dover - Chestnut Antique
    Nevis (boot) - Chestnut Antique

    Left behind a Galway in Burnt Pine in my size. Also saw a 9.5E Galway on a Dainite sole in the classic Dark Oak/Mink suede make-up (I'm a 10E on the 82, plus I already have one Galway).

    There were Dovers, Beaulieu, a Shannon in Black Calf/Black Suede (again these are all 9.5/10's). Not a great selection in the other size I checked - 6.5E. I had a list of 5 models for proxying on behalf of another forum member, but there weren't any available. There were only four or five rows in this smaller size, whereas the 9.5/10s covered four full racks of shoes.

    I didn't check any other sizes as I wanted to leave enough time to get to Lobb and C&J. Picked up a black Hallam from C&J just before they threw me out!

    If anyone picked up a Westminster in Dark Oak antique in UK 8E I will gladly pay their over inflated price :)

    Do Edward Green now have a factory shop that is open on a regular basis? The advert for the sale implies that they do.

    Very jealous! Any sense of pricing, both at the sale and when the factory store isn't having a sale? Same question for Lobb. I'm heading to London later this year and considering making a trip out to Northampton if its worth it.

    Thanks,

    Larry

    Larry, I listed the prices in the EG appreciation thread. Worth repeating though: £460 for standard shoes, £525 for Dover, £545 for boots (Galway, Shannon), £610 for Nevis (the boot version of Dover). Yesterday was a special sale with 20% off those prices, but those are the usual numbers I guess (it was my first ever trip).

    Lobb was quite expensive. From £600 downwards to £300, dependent on the flaw, with all sorts of different price points between the two.

    HTH

    In this day and age I would have loved if they went online with this factory sale.

    Hardly likely. EG's website has barely changed in the past 4 years.

    Too much work involved what with photographs, descriptions, returns, inventory, sizing etc.

    Thanks for the info. Very helpful. Do folks know if they give VAT back for us foreigners?

    Yes, I believe you pay the same price then reclaim the VAT at Customs upon leaving the country.
