It was great meeting so many like-minded fanatics at Sky Valet on Saturday. I think that the EG staff were taken aback by our fanaticism; they kept asking how we "knew" each other and knew so much about EG. And once the party really started going, with Duveen and RJ Man (among others) waxing eloquent, Alex moved to the side, shaking his head and looking a bit worried. Now, as for what I ordered, it was the Troon in brown, as I have a weakness for monkstraps. But my next order is definitely going to be the Newbury in olive, without a doubt the most striking shoe in the collection. If you had asked me on Friday I would have assured you that I would never go for a green shoe. But that was before I saw the model in Sky Valet. The fact is that that the color is perfectly wearable: when it is on your feet it looks black and unremarkable, until you see it in a certain light. Then, the cognescenti's eyes will pop out. Besides the color, I adore the shape and the simplicity of the medallion. Now as for the question of which shop on Madison EG might soon be supplying, I have no idea. But I do know that they supply Barney's in Japan. Finally, I for one was not disappointed in any way by RJ Man. Actually, he was exactly what I had imagined: incredibly enthusiastic and encyclopediac in his knowledge. Hope to see you all again...perhaps when the shoes come in.
