^ I am that person! I want a Grayson so bad, but I cannot get a size to work for me... To your point about "blind" trying: I have some funny stories about that. Guys who "have always worn a 12" fit like a glove in a 10.5 EEE, until they hear the size. "10.5?! You know they feel a little short..." LOL
I believe, what the associate was trying to convey is this (drawing on my own experience): Often times, customers assume that they can only wear one specific last, thereby limiting their options. What we (AE employees) sometimes make an effort to get across is most guys can wear numerous, if not all of our lasts. They may have to adjust sizes in different lasts, but they really aren't limited to one last. I only have to explain this when a customer comes in stating, "The 8...
Hey all. Quick update on Chicago She'll Trunk Show shoes: I spoke with Jim Kass, VP of production, yesterday and he told me that Chicago orders should be done by Jan 10. Thanks for your patience. Jim wants to make sure we get these shoes done right. Best, Ryan
So here's the update:There will be sample shoes in each color in Chicago and NYC. All other shows will have swatches on hand.The limit is 25 pairs of each color per store.The South Coast show has been moved to San Francisco Embarcadero.I'll have images of each hide shortly and will post as soon as I receive it.FYI: Natural has been the most pre ordered color in my store, by far (i think 12 pairs) so get orders in asap.Ryan
Good morning all! A quick update on the trunk show, with more to follow later this afternoon: I just got back from a few days of meetings in MPLS, so I haven't been as prompt at returning emails as I'd like. Apologies for that. I have a conference call with the head of production in about two hours in which we will hammer out a few details regarding the upcoming trunk shows. I'm hoping to get an update on the supply of limited colors, including the estimated number of...
This is the one color I haven't seen images of. Waiting on some clarification, but I'm imagining it may be similar to the Chocolate calf Dalton. Very dark. I'll confirm when I hear more.
They are included.
Yes, sir.
About that...After a few emails yesterday, I received a response from our VP of production today. Here's the scoop:The original six styles I posted will be available with no upcharge, guaranteed shipped by 12/22.You may have any other welt in the current active lineup made (the EC would be ordered as a First Ave) but the $125 fee will be added and the 12/22 ship date may not apply. Hope this helps some of you guys make your decisions!
Date and times for NYC: Thursday 11/20: Noon to 2:00 New York 44th Street                         Madison Avenue 4:00 to 7:00 pm. From what I understand, Paul and Skip are going to be present at the NYC shows, hence the same-day, consecutive times.
