Hey Ed...

From what i've heard, he will be pricing himself slightly below what EG charged for his services so I would expect to pay something slightly south of$3k (which would include shoe trees). The deposit would traditionally be half.

Thanks, slightly south sounds like Virginia to me, I need them to go as far south as Argentina!

Andrew's figures are right, and the first pair of shoes will take about 9 months to a year to complete. But it's pretty cool to have 1 of only about 100 pairs made a year.

I expect the price to be 1,400 GBP, which includes trees. If I recall correctly, EG was 1,550, and Tony said he was going to charge 10% less.

So much for 10% less. Unless EG's final price was more like 1,700, which I do not recall.
