    Yeah, it's probably an underestimate - I didn't keep count of the number I sent out, but I reckon it was about 15-20 pairs in the end, so I just doubled that. But you're right, that's probably a big underestimate. [​IMG]

    Do you guys ever get a `WTF?`from colleagues who walk in on you taking pics of your shoes at work? Can't help but think that it's bound to happen. Just the other day, my girlfriend stood in the doorway for a few minutes before busting out in laughter at the sight of me just standing in front of my closet looking in awe at all my shoeboxes!

    Anything with "Porn" will turn heads and raise eyebrows

    These shoes are nice. I'd be interested to see a pic of you wearing them in better light. I have a pair of navy shoes, but haven't worn them yet; thus, I'm interested to see how folks pair them with their clothing.

    Blue jeans on your file cabinet?

    Aram at SkyValet asked me to post some pics of a new EG model that he has at his store:

    EG IFFORD
    Old Rose / Black Suede

    FYI for those of you in DC, EG will be at his store in Georgetown this Thursday and Friday. Just think of all the possibilities! [​IMG] [​IMG]

    ^^^I like the way it looks from the top (bottom photo), but I don't like the side view.

    The aerial view displays arguable a cleaner look than the saddle shoe that probably inspired it's designer. Wow.

    What is the pair on the left, and the pair on the right? I like them both! Maybe the pair on the left looks cool because the brogue is so exposed, I presume because of the camera flash?

    I think Sky Valet received the shipment of shoes for display at this week's trunk show (thurs/fri), and this doozie was among the lot. I don't think Sky or EG expect to sell many pairs in this color scheme -- it's more so people can think widely (wildly) about the many varieties of color and skin that are possible with EG. By the way, rather than "old rose," I'd like to see this shoe with heavily antiqued burgundy.

    It just looks like a wrong combination
