    I've exchanges some emails with Mark and am ready to pull the trigger..........what's the best/easiest way to order if in the US? Will going through the website be enough or do I need to go through Mark and give him my CC info?

    That figure for duties seems crazy high. I went to an online calculator and mens shoes carry a 5% duty, if a pair of C&J with shipping runs $375 the total due should be about $17. Definitely would like to hear what DHL says as I am thinking of pulling the trigger on a couple pair.

    Just order from the online website should be fine. I ordered a St James II in size 8 but Mark told me that they ran out so he had to order. I then change the last to MH71 at no cost and it was accommodated at the discount price. Great deal

    So after dealing with DHL and customs along with sending in details of the shoe and invoice, come to find out customs coded it incorrectly without even verifying contents. DHL stated the customs code for men's shoes has a duty rate of 10%. Duties came to be $55.86 + $6.5 (disbursement fee).

    Walcot: £790 (~$810 after VAT/Discount)
    Banbury: £870 (~$890 after VAT/Discount)

    Can you choose any make up on the Galaway for that price? What make up did you do or are about to do?

    Unsure, but I would assume so. Small details like shearling lining may cost more. I may skip out on this round, can't seem to convince myself I need to kop more shoes despite the good deal, don't wear them as much moving from NYC to SoCal. May just wait til next year.

    X-post from the EG thread.
    ______________________________________________________________________________________

    I wear UK 7.5E in last 202 (oxford) and from what i can tell i would take the same size in last 82 and 64 as well in the Galaway?

    For reference, i wear UK8E in G&G TG73 and DG70. UK7E in C&J last 337.

    Frank,

    I am surprised I wear the same size in 82/888 and DG70, some folks have said they size down a half size when going with 202 last but you better double check this.

    Tread carefully on that site....a lot of info there is pretty misleading....they list all sizes when they dont actually have all of them....hows a punter to know whether his size is available?

    I'm going to pull the trigger on 2 EG's

    1. Galway on the 64 last with shearling lining. Not sure if I should go with the almond with mink suede or the rosewood.... opinions welcome

    2. The second shoe is between the inverness in burgundy, oakdale in midnight or the asquith in dark oak. decision decisions decisions

    Correct. I got an email from Mark after my order was processed letting me know that they were out of my size GG St James II and it would be eight weeks. :fu: :( Oh well, we just got snow so I wouldn't be wearing them anyway. They will be a pleasant surprise when they arrive.

    Almond and mink suede and the Oakdale in midnight would be my choice from the selection above.
