DC is marginally (say 1/3?) more spacious but still not a place I would remotely call large.  Would not say it offers more models/diversity than NY --- NY just works with less space.

Listed L to R:

 

#8 Shell PAs, Brown calf Strand, Black Alden 909, Black calf PA

As others have stated, it depends on the level of formality. But I definitely would stick with Black shoes for the interview if you are going Charcoal Suit. I personally would go for the Black Alden 909, but the PA would be more appropriate if its a super formal place.

Those are one of my favorite models that I don't own. Looks great!

Yet another great model and shot. Looking great for the casual and warm summer months.

Ha, I have been to all three in the period of a week before. Alden San Francisco is probably the biggest storefront, then Alden DC, then Alden Madison. In terms of back house, it probably goes Alden SF, Alden Madison, and then Alden DC. Despite having the least amount of customer space, I would say almost without a doubt that Madison has the greatest diversity of models. They are just much more closely compacted... :-)

 

All are fantastic shops!

I might have to check out black color shell. Been told it look like plastic & way to shinny but have to check it out in real life.

I just returned a size 8.5D to AoDC. They should be back at the store tomorrow. Flawless finish, just a little too dark for me.

Thanks for the heads up! I'll have to give Kathy a ring and see if I've got a shot at them.

Ha, Ha, now that just gives you leverage to make him a low ball offer.
