Check out photos 8,9 & 14/74 of http://www.styleforum.net/g/i/116289/8-and-alpine-saddles-jpg/sort/display_order/, those helped convinced me. There was also a pair with some wear on ebay late last month.
Thanks. I actually replied earlier saying I managed to find it (it only shows up under the dedicated preorder -> alden preorder page, unlike some of the other makeups available for preorder) but my posts are slow to appear and this last post didn't appear at all. In any case, thanks for the head's up! my pre-order is in!
