    Gaziano & Girling are in town so I paid them a visit today in Georgetown. Tony Gaziano was most gracious and it was a pleasure meeting him and learning a bit more about his shoes... they really are amazing! As hard as it is to imagine, they look even better in person. Tony's at the top of his craft and it shows through his shoes - each one a work of art.

    Oh in case you missed him in D.C., they're headed up to Leffot on Tuesday...

    Much more classic in design than his first models and definitely two shoes I would consider. The St. James is especially nice.

    At the Georgetown Inn! He'll be there all day tomorrow as well (but you must call the hotel in advance -- call the front desk and ask to speak with Tony Gaziano. He'll fit you into his sedge-yuel)

    This is the last of the seven new models... keep in mind, this one is unpolished!! Tony's still deciding on a name for this one...

    Well this was more of an information-gathering mission for me, but I would have a hard time choosing between these two... although I'm leaning towards the pair on the left...

    I'd go but I don't really want to go with no chance of buying anything...

    Stingray is pretty awesome - and you never have to polish it!

    Call me when the "Carnaby St." comes out.

    I'm sorry, I meant "Mayfair".
