    If it was the display one I saw then it's fine.

    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.

    Antibes, maiden voyage.

    Maybe the most comfortable shoe I have ever put on new from box. I took better pics last night, will post those shortly.
