    My ultimate question, though, is why would Ralph sell PL shoes at $325? Even if these were Loake seconds, under the PL banner, they'd sell for $850. Or maybe I'm just being cynical...

    You're not being cynical. The Purple Label branding is as much about quality as it is prestige/price. If their cotton shirts retail for 350, then you know good and hell well they would not sell shoes for less than that, which actually are more expensive to produce.

    Polo Mich Ave store in Chicago has 2 pair of EGs. You must ask (Gregory) to see them.
    The 8.5 is the Barksdale in oak. The 11 is the Mackay in oak. Both come with shoe trees.

    Have they sold out of the rest of their EGs? I bought mine there about a month or so ago and they had around 4-5 different EGs on display.

    I just received a call confirming my address and noting that the shoes will be shipped "within the next few hours."

    But EG do not make shoes in burnished tan calf. If it was EG, wouldn't it be labeled Edwardian Antique calf instead?

    Isnt an antique calf just called a cow? Cow colored shoes? No wonder they are on sale.

    I just called and left a message, asking them to hold them until I am able to see if they can be shipped to me. Do you think they will be willing to do this, or even just ship them to my local polo store? I guess I'll call first thing tomorrow, and I'll be a happy guy if this ends up working out (and forever in debt to you for letting me know!).

    To add, I personally thought I remembered seeing PL suede oxfords on heavy markdown at the Mansion last November.

    Who are they getting in place of EG? What might the quality be like?


    Probably the MacKay in suede, I bought a pair of those.

    Because the picture is of what is most definitely an Edward Green shoe.

    This was always a slight risk. I am curious as to what will show up.

    For tomorrow 25% off sale at Polo.com, the RLPL Addison are all gone, Camden only size 8 left, Barksdale darkoak only 11.5 left Edwardian still have some sizes left. Apparently many couldn't wait for tomorrow's sales and used the 20% off coupon today instead. I have no idea sale has become that combative.

    Of course. what did you expect with near half price greens... and news that polo is probably not going to replace the EG stock.

    I suppose that the Grant's are the only EGs left and I already bought them.

    If they were about $600 cheaper, I'd snap them up.
