    I've asked about GG that they didn't have and they said i couldn't order those. Didn't matter because i was about to buy St James one year ago from Bespoke England but went for the Canterbury instead. This sale was the sign to get them :)

    Even with the sale going on, RTW direct from GG on their site is cheaper than the MTO from EoM - Cambridges are a steal at under 600 pounds ex-VAT!

    Also fell into peer pressure but held off GG for now (told myself not to order any GG until I receive my Wigmores). However, picked up EG Inverness and C&J Weymouth in addition to 5 trees. No GG = small-timer.

    Ordered a pair of Grant my first pair of G&G but have to wait 6-8 weeks as there are no stocks left.

    Grant is worth the wait. Great show. N.b. that the one EoM stocks is an F width.

    I just ordered a C&J Edgwrae. It's first time to buy English shoes. Exciting, and uh uh uh...[​IMG]

    I was trying hard to resist this and then got a surprise freelance gig, so I decided to grab a few C&Js I've been thinking about for a while. Two pairs of Tetbury — one in black calf and one in brown suede and an Ashdown in scotch grain. I also grabbed a pair of EG lasted trees for my Belgravias. Thanks, OP!

    I used this code today, so I guess they're allowing its use in to February.

    I pulled the trigger on 2 pairs of C&J.................Westbourne in chestnut and Hallam in dark brown. They are delayed until March in my size, so let's see how long this actually ends up taking.

    I hate to hear that the code extends into February. I've ordered a pair of EG Westminsters and I'm trying to show some restraint and not order a pair of black C&J Tetburys. I already have a brown pair and really like them, but I'm facing about $1200 in car repairs that weren't in the budget :(. Must...stay...strong...

    Unfortunate scenario with EoM's CC risk management company stating my shipping address was "high risk" but the transaction was completed then another transaction was done to credit (which was around $9 less than what the original transaction was). I had my CC authorize and resubmit and that was okay. Unfortunately, the original transaction was processed and EoM credited, instead of voided the original transaction, I was them stuck with a $47 international fee. Requested EoM to void the transaction but they said they couldn't because it was not in the same day.

    I hate frivolous fees where the credit card gets undeserved $$$.

    Remain resolute!

    May I ask about the sizing on the Tetbury? Did you go 1/2 size down, full size down, or 1.5 sizes down?
