Apologies if this is the wrong place to post this but I figured I'd give a fellow Alden enthusiast a head's up before the broader Internet. I'm on a preorder for Alden of Carmel's color 8 LWB on commando with antique edges, size 10.5D Barrie last. The shoes are set to arrive next month.

(Specifically I'm looking for a natural CXL boot &, before ordering the standard Indys, was curious to see what the EP offerings might be. Thanks in advance!) @epaulet
