    As long as everyone understands that this is not an EG MTO shoe, it's EG bespoke and will run upwards of $3000.

    Yup, it's a completely different animal from what benecios is asking.

    $1240 w/ tax and 20% surcharge included from Saks, NYC. That does not include shoe trees. Proces from others including Sky Valet, Jay Kos and LeatherSole may vary.

    Andrew, can you reveal the pricing for your Hawaiian and D.C. sources? I'm assuming the Jay Kos markup is somewhat aggressive.

    Dior's choice for sure, but i would have to pause if I had to choose between those and these. This is bespoke, but hey, while we're playin the game...

    Shop around a bit, and you should be able to do better from a price standpoint. I ordered 2 pair MTO a couple months ago, and I paid quite a bit less than what you'd pay a Saks.

    Another difference between MTO EG and bespoke is that bespoke Gaziano&Girling (EG's spun-off bespoke operation; EG no longer does bespoke) also takes about 1 year to complete for your first shoe.

    I just ordered an antique olive Jodhpur boot from Leather Soul, along with a couple accessories. Pricing is competitive.

    LabelKing's suggestion of a navy calf/brown suede spectator on the Barker Black thread has been on my mind for a while too.

    EG's antique burgundy is one of the most beautiful skins available in the shoe world.

    I didn't say that's what I paid, did I?[​IMG]

    My next EG MTO will most likely be one or two of the following:
    Holborn (2 eyelet derby) in tobacco suede on 82 last
    Bamford (wholecut loafer) without medallion in chesnut on 101 last
    Ladbroke (oxford) in burgundy on 82 last
    Westminster (double buckle monk), in chesnut or burgundy on 82 last

    After they produce your first last, how much is it for the following shoes?

    This is Made To Order (MTO) NOT bespoke. In MTO, there is no individual last made to your measurements. You choose from their prexisting lasts. Therefore, the price does not change from one order to the next. I believe this is also true for bespoke. Though the turn around time may be shorter for subsequent orders once they have your last down, the price isn't any less.
