Had the No. 8 Leffot Ivy in my shopping cart. Thought I'd completed checkout but an hour after I'd filled everything out I found I hadn't hit submit. No longer available. Apparently I didn't really need a pair of Venetians.
You have two wingtips, so I'd say NST, which can dress up and down quite well. Of course, no one would blame you for getting another LWB.
But may I propose another alternative? WT boot. If you get it with all eyelets -- which, to my eye, makes it just a bit more elegant than with speedhooks -- it'll have tremendous range of uses.
I'm terribly sorry. I was innocently calling on the assumption that the message on the site -- "please call to place order" -- was simply their normal routine when shoes were out of stock. I expected to call, place the order, receive the discount, and proceed. I had no reason to believe that the sale posting was a mistake prior to the call.
Odd exchange when I called TSM. All the shoes in which I was interested were out of stock. They could have them drop shipped. Sale price wouldn't be honored. I was told that Aldens were not on sale; that they never go on sale. When I politely urged that the person have a look at the website, I was told that it must be mistaken. Perhaps others will have a different experience.
