Just came back from NY and wanted to thank everyone for the recommendations.
Ended up going to all three Allen Edmonds stores near my hotel (the one on 6th, and the two on Madison) as well as the RL mansion, all the big dept stores and Leffot. Didn't make it out to Epaulet or Citishoes.
Purchased a pair of Rider boots, Church's and a few Allen Edmonds.
Quick snaps off my phone for anyone bored enough to look.
