you mean the f*ed up edge dressing, yea, I would prefer not to see that..., though I guess it's inevitable crap like that happens. It doesn't make them excusable, but unless you always shine the shoe yourself and always send to GG for resole (so they will always have to fix any mistake), someone else will screw you up on that (either a shoe shine person in the airport or some other cobbler that does resole for you).

Welt edge coloring  staining upper leather?   I agree it should not happen, but I see some GG shoes do not have a perfect finish when they are new and on display.  Most of those can be taken care of at retailer but inspection at factory should be improved IMHO.

good to know, show us some picture when you get it.

edit: oh and how much did they charge for shipping, just so I have an idea in case magic happen and I can score a pair of Fairmont somewhere

They waive ground shipping, my total was $524. I was looking at an AS black derby for my rotation, but these will do nicely...

These pics are great. I'm waiting for all 4 of mine to arrive to take some pics. Went from zero to four G&Gs in two weeks. My foot is the rare 9.5US, but I got super lucky calling around, talking to different SAs, getting put on hold for 20 mins at a time, hanging up and calling again, etc.

I already bought 5 pairs of shoes in 3 weeks prior to this sale and told myself I was done for awhile. I guess I should be happy there won't be another sale like this anytime soon.
