    Before you return the pair that doesn't fit well, offer them first to SF members at cost, many of whom don't have that kind of access to shoes we find in NY.

    Well, I'd be buying these online, so I'm assuming everyone has access. They didn't have any dark oaks at the mansion unfortunately, only black, and not in my size.

    I saw someone buy the Mackey in Edwardian (could be a member here)...it looked great but also wasn't available in my size. Btw how dark a suit would go well with the Edwardian (which seems rather light)?

    You mean they didn't have any dark oaks in any size or just in your size?

    I hope you're happy with your purchases. You certainly made out like a bandit. The Grant's were gorgeous in person (in the burnt pine I believe). I would have snatched them up, but they were a little too casual for me. I'm extremely happy with the Mackay in Edwardian. Certainly a great looking shoe, with a great looking finish.

    Would the stuff on sale on the website be reduced again, or the sale is only on regular priced items?

    Not quite understanding how people are ordering the Mackays at discount online. Is it because you received a promotional code with the sale notificiation in the mail? Would you want to share it perchance?

    Sweet mother... I saw those wholecuts yesterday. I cant believe they discounted them with the others. $433 is an absolutely steal. I think they go for around $600 on EBAY!!! (especially when you consider the lasted shoe trees).

    Let's give Ralph some kudos for holding EG pricing at $850 w/ trees and then cutting that in half. Well done Ralph!

    Andrew, do you know what RLPL prices will be next season? I'm thinking we won't see too many opportunities in the future to pick up Greens this cheap (relatively speaking, of course).

    Don't praise Ralph too quickly. The price on the spring/summer shoes reflects the wholesale price for Edward Green that was arranged sometime Fall 2005. Prices will be $100 higher, $950 for Fall/Winter 2006, according to the sales representative. If there is anytime to buy a pair of McKays, its now. Actually this is probably the best time to purchase the shell cordovans, since CJ has upped the price to $795 for most American models (see Turnbull & Asser kiosk, Barney's, etc.)

    EDIT: Norcal "lightning fingers" transplant beat Andrew to the punch...

    This, I did not need to hear.

    I haven't really been following this thread...I'm assuming the Darltons will go 40% off online tonight (and we'll be able to use that 15% coupon code?)

    My shoe collection thanks you...my credit card is most displeased. [​IMG]

    Do RL shoes fit particularly different, or are they fairly true to size? I would like to buy a pair at Polo online or from Grapevinehill but want to be safe. The only other shoes I own are a few pairs of Hugo Boss's which I wear a 10.5 US in. Will an RL 10.5 be fine?
