MIDTOWN EAST—We don't know how to feel about this: The Mad Men cast materialized in Bloomingdale's last night to drink whiskey and eat dry-vermouth-and-vodka–marinated shrimp at a party for the new men's shop. On the one hand, that menu sounds era-appropriate. On the other hand, the whiskey was from 1985, the year Don Draper turned (will turn? OMG time is imploding) 60. We're equally disconcerted by the fuzz on the faces of Aaron Staton and Vincent Kartheiser—those dirty hippies. [Chic Report]
WEST VILLAGE—British footwear company Edward Green brings very proper shoes and boots to Leffot tomorrow. From 11am to 7pm, the store will host a trunk show at which men can mix and match Edward Green's colors, material, sole type, patterns, and leathers to create a pair of custom shoes. Usually, there's a $120 fee for this sort of high-class service, but it's waived this weekend. Leffot is at 10 Christopher Street between Gay Street and Greenwich Avenue. [Racked Inbox]
