    I was just in there. Was nice to meet Mr. G! Unfortunately, my 2-year-old son passed out right before we arrived, so I wasn't able to get a picture with the 3 of us. Ah well, next time. Also, it was crowded in that tiny, tiny store, and I decided against taking up too much of the gents' time jawing. Oh, and my son's stroller was taking up practically the entire store!

    In the end, I ended up just getting the natural Dundee w Indy lining and insole. Everything else standard. I'm excited about it, but I think after seeing all these colors, I definitely think burgundy is my absolute favorite color for shell cordovan. Guess Mac is right, #8 really is King!

    44th street, Manhattan.

    Also, got a gift belt bag with a shoe horn, some conditioner cleaner, and a cordovan key ring. I actually needed a new keychain...

    Thanks. Do you know if it's a "traveling show"? Will the same shoes and people be in Phila., tonight, for example? Was there a rep from Horween there? The email that got sent out claimed there would be.

    That was you with the stroller? I was boxed in at one point.

    I was probably the youngest person there. I was wearing my walnut shell daltons, but I was only in there for a few minutes. I'm passing this time around because I'm eyeing something else. Also, the only color I really liked was the Natural and Deep Brown. The brown is actually a lot nicer than my brown shell strands.

    I agree, #8 is probably the best AE has to offer right now. Walnut and Cappuccino were great in the past. Actually I introduced myself to Paul and he made a comment about my Daltons. He asked his head of production if they were doing Walnut today and I got excited for a second, but his response was no. Someday guys...someday.

    It looks like the show models might have been the same as the others people have posted photos of. I believe Paul and Skip Horween are going to another NYC location tonight, so it won't be Skip in PHI. It's not too late to make a trip into the city!

    Thanks. I've been on the fence about getting a Navy Dundee in on of the trunk shows. Can't decide between the flat vs reverse welt. These pictures give s me a good idea how the flat would look.

    That's too funny! I was there around 12:30. I was the only 6'6'' dude with a black LL Bean down jacket. That store was too tiny for the 15 people in there. I got as far as the door, checked out a few pairs and then headed back to the office. I would've liked to say hi to Paul & Skip but it wasn't happening.

    By chance, did any of you see that Walnut EC floating around? I didn't have a chance to see if it was calf or shell. Looked real nice from about 3 yards away.

    I think I posted a photo of that boot you are referring to. It was a natural shell first avenue.
