    Actually Corthay is trying to pay the same game.

    I still find the lack of exclusive GG showroom sad.

    I don't know if G&G is leaving Barney or Barney does not want to carry G&G. Only Barneys men's shoe buyer , Tony Gaziano & Dean Girling would know.

    I can think of 2 options (mere speculation from a business point of view):
    a. G&G is a very niche brand and not as fashionable as the popular brands out there so it's not selling well to justify using up the floor space (hence they mark them down so much).

    b. G&G does not want the shoes discounted which devalues their brand they they no longer sell to Barneys. (but the shoes are discounted because they aren't selling).

    Sort of a chick or egg dilemma.

    Holly cow! It'd be my dream to walk into your closet one day!

    I got the Walkton and Fairmont as well and yours are beautiful!

    Fairmont's in 9.5E/10 M for me. I would post pictures but Spoo beat me to it. Best part was I used my Barney's Reward card to defray much of the cost.

    When I asked the SA about the relationship with G&G he just said they had an issue with Barney's deep discounting and G&G didn't want to buy back the (sales) stock from Barney's.
