    Chilling in Euston station now, waiting for the train to Northampton. Wearing my new pair of Justin Fitzpatrick (aka Shoe Snob) loafers.

    Also got to spend a couple of hours with Tony Gaziano, author of the St. James II, perhaps the most elegantly designed and made RTW shoe on the market right now, here in an intermediate stage of production:

    Other thoughts:

    -"Cockfosters" twice as funny in person

    -8:30 pm and still full sunlight outside

    -I think both Tony of G&G and James of C&J thought I was trying to steal their car when I approached it on what turned out to be the driver's side

    Very disappointing. I had been picturing elves.

    For any Londoners interested in meeting up...how about the evening of the 8th?

    Depends on how you define evening. I'm off from work around 8:30-9:00, so could be in the city around 9:30 at the latest.

    Sunday the 7th is an option too - I thought Monday might be easier for people who work in the city, but either is ok.
