Been watching this thread from afar and drooling at the beautiful selections and have decided to take the plunge and have a couple questions:
Living in the DC metro area, my B&M buying choices are Sky Valet
and Brooks Brothers, even though my BB does not carry them in stock, they are willing to have several shipped to the store for me to try on. This is great but it seems to me that their prices are a couple hundred dollars more than some of the online retailers, is this because they include the shoe trees? Also, the corporate discount is a nice perk.
My first choice would be the Galway but with winter coming to an end, it seems more practical for me to order something that I can wear all year and buy those next fall. Does EG retailers carry the Galway all year?
I'm looking at the following at Brook Brothers:EG Leather Medallion Cap Toes in GreyEG Wingtip Bals in Burgundy Antique
Anyone know what last these are on and have a pic of them in the wild?
