Up for sale is a pair of Alden for Leather Soul Plain Toe Flex Boots. They are a size 5.5E in the Barrie Last, which translates to a 6D in size. I have found that I am not getting enough wear out of them or any of my boots, so I am selling these to put the money towards the new flex chukkas I purchased from Leather Soul last week. The boots have been worn only 5-6 times in the months I have owned them and have been polished with Saphir dark brown polish to tone down the...
Code:The simple truth is they do not have too. Even before the Internet they sold everything they make and with all the special make- ups they do for retailers it is not needed.
The new chino colors look great. I may have to add a pair to the items they are already working on for me. The list is just growing. So fat the pants I got are great. I am looking forward to getting my shirt and the 2 light weight overcoats and my shorts from them.
Since he had issues with getting my first belt done in a timely manner I did not send payment for them. My deal was payment on delivery. I am not out money, but the fact that I recommended his work to one of my good friends and he did not deliver was disappointing.
I know his work is worth the wait, but his inability to communicate lately is upsetting. When I first started working with him he answered all e-mails with in a day or so and now I can't even get him to respond. I have been waiting for my wallet and a french purse he was making for a friend for over a year now with excuse and delay after another. I am thinking I will never see them, but a response would be nice. He does not answer on e-mail, PM , FB messages or Tumbler...
You can get the butyl in a single sole. i am having a pair of MacNeils and a PTB done with the sole.
I like many realize that the issue is not the retailers at all. I have had nothing but excellent service and help from the ones I frequently use to get shoes. The problem is 100% Alden and their shit QA of products and their less than appropriate treatment of retailers. in my case they simply told Leffot that they forgot to make a shoe that we took weeks making sure would get made.
I do not think you can annoy them too much. I have been working with Theresa over the last few weeks and have had dozens of back and forth PM and e-mails to get a chino, a shirt and 2 light weight wool over coats done. Her customer service is amazing. I need to send another tonight or tomorrow to get some details to her about a chambray pair of shorts with side adjusters I want made.
I feel for you. My e-mail was to let me know Alden somehow missed making my size. What pissed me off is that we went through hoops to make sure Alden would make my size. Alden has shit customer service. If I just forgot to do something for one of my customers I would get field.
