    Some people experience trouble because of the website's credit card security systems so if you experience trouble just ring their main number on the site and ask for "Roger" or "Mark" who will help you through the whole process.

    These guys are service oriented in the old fashioned sense. I believe this is the oldest shoe retailer in England, but then, so many people in UK make these claims, who can really tell?

    Take the St James because:-

    1- you KNOW you want them
    2- G&G price increase is coming soon (maybe this month even)
    3- the sale will not last forever
    4- you will never forgive yourself later

    Thinking about the oak asquith and/or the black chelsea... may also ask them if they can get the galway. :happy:

    If this happens, I'm going to ban myself from SF for the rest of the year.... :brick:

    Guys, I thought you might like to know that I clicked on the "Contact us" button last night and, after exchanging several emails with Mark Firth at Edwards of Manchester, I ordered a stock model EG Westminster (double monk) at the 20% off discounted price and without VAT, even though it isn't listed among their current stock. Since EG doesn't have my size in stock it will take about 6 weeks for delivery, but the price (shipped) of ca. $705 is less than I could get on ebay, if the shoes ever appeared.

    Let the feeding frenzy begin (with apologies to those of you guarding your wallets).

    You might as well go for it. I would not be surprised if Edward Green pulls Alfred Sargent and prohibits sales outside of the certain region.

    Dude, do I need a few more EGs? I just had a spree recently... Will they only do the style/color combination from their selection or they can do any of the current selections from the EG catalogue?
