    I ordered the westbury, gable, and savoy are all these on the tg73 last? I want to order trees and just want to double check before I order them.


    Thanks

    The Windsor said MH71 (soft square) under the tongue where the size is handwritten, last was also handwritten. The MH71 and TG73 look extremely similar to me. Anyone have the model# on the Biarritz?

    thanks! they are pretty similar. if the pics are not angled well, it can indeed be hard to tell.

    So it seems that many have taken advantage of the Barney's sales on G&G. On their 2nd mark-down, Barney's have put Savoy and Windsor on sale and seems like SF members have snapped up most of the stock! I'd hazard a guess that we SFers have bought 75% of the sale stock since general public haven't discovered G&G yet. Inventory and sizes are vanishing in front of my eyes over the past 24 hours on the remaining sale stock.

    It's a great deal at 669-739$ a pair. I am so glad I bought the Biarritz when I was at Barney's New York on 6 Dec. The salesman told me that Barneys.com displays inventory from the New York store and staff from the online store fill all of their orders from NY store at the end of every day so they have the most updated list. I even had to ask for the sales shoes because they weren't on display whilst regular priced items were. I am so glad I bought Biarritz and since I already have the Gable, I didn't get them. The Westbury looks very similar to Gable and I skipped that.

    Westbury price has gone up again. Is Barney's pricing tied to immediate spikes in demand?

    That is, did their system notice a spike in Westbury sales, and hike the price up accordingly?

    And to echo this point, I think a lot of SFers are buying their first pair of G&Gs because of this sale. It's a great way to be introduced to the brand.

    I think they have an 'evil little monkey' with his hand on the lever controlling the prices. It's fun for him to jerk the SF shoe groupies around on a short chain. :embar:
