I was, but then in another later thread when weighing my options, I decided I'd make a trip to NYC during summer shoe sales and try my luck at all the places that sell high-end shoes. I was going to do this when I took time off work for the wedding, but I was only planing on being in toronto for 1.5 days while spending the rest of the time in NYC. It's an Indian wedding however, and I just recently received the invitations. To my surprise, there were 4 separate invitations (different events) in the envelope. It turns out that I have to be at the brides' house for lunch two days before the event, which essentially means that my stay in Toronto has been extended from 1.5 days to 4. Since I also have exams during that time, I'm not sure what's going to happen to my NY trip. I can't take too much time off of work either....
And speaking of the Uomo trunk show, I haven't received an invitation from them yet, although I did get another mailing advertising that their spring stock is now in, so I was put on the mailing list like I had asked.
The plan is to try NYC first, and then if I crap-out on the sales, I'll do the MTO during the fall show and get exactly what I want. Also financially, I can't really do the MTO right now because I have other priorites like shirts and pants where I am doing a complete closet replacement. I have 16 garments on order right now and I want to do more shirts because I am so sorely lacking in that area... I can get by without extra shoes for now, but I absolutely need the pants and shirts.
Anyway, the purchase of any of the shoes in this post would have been done on impulse and I'm glad you guys reigned me in! I'll wait till june and hopefully my schedule will work itself out nicely.
