AskAndy Men Shopping Excursion!

Best Men’s Shopping Day ever!!

OldSarge has been the inspiration for several of these excursions into Orange County, but this was the best!

We started at Allen Edmonds store in South Coast Plaza where Manager Dan greeted us by opening an hour early, providing coffee and croissants or muffins and presenting each of the AskAndy Members with Allen Edmonds shoes trees with the AskAndy logo and personalized with their username!

They presented each of us with a linen, hand-loomed (on the old style wooden loom) pocket square!

After so many fabric choices, we needed a drink!

We were really impressed by their philosophy and some of the great things they have planned.

Vishall Melwani met us and took us on the tour of the new (maybe just days old and still under construction) facility!
