I was on it and got my deposit back. Mike said if the boot ever gets confirmed for production, he will give those people who were originally in on it first a chance to out their deposit back down and get their size reserved.

I took my deposit back sometime in the fall. I decided to immediately turn around and spend the money on other stuff at Epaulet though so it was a wash. lol

I emailed Epaulet about 2 weeks ago and they said they would be happy to refund my deposit. I'm going to stick it out a bit longer and see what happens.

Epaulet has reported repeatedly it would refund the deposits to anyonewho wwants refunds amd that it would hold the place for tthe refundees should the Messiah appear and the shoe is confirmed. Many people on the list for the MTO have repeatedly reported this policy as well. There is no news here. When the Messiah comes we will all be delivered, none of us will have this MTO because Alden is otherwise engaged and, you know what, we will all still be delivered with shoes on our feet that will be just fine for tthe wonderous occasion.

If someone really feels like this MTO is that important, make the Alden family sell the company to you and make the damn shoes. Either that or place the order with one of the number of shoe manufacturers that would cum in their pants for the business.

A brown calf or brown CXL?

I would prefer brown calf, but I am fine with any of them.

Your only shot at it is with Kathy in DC and then what happens is too many people sign up and the whole thing gets axed. Happened with the "Thor" boot in cigar had over 35 peeps signed up. frown.gif

There are other avenues, but it will only be 12 or 24 pairs. It will take a few runs over probably 2 years to fulfill the initial crowd.

Kathy was the most receptive on a MTO but they are other retailers who may be as well. It took me a year just to find out the Thor wasn't possible much less run 35 pairs. The wait would be well over a year or two unless the Alden scene has changed, there's no oversupply of cigar much less getting Alden to make a cigar MTO, either way good luck.

I did not even know such a thread as this existed on planet earth...:)

 

Definitely very cool.

 

I would be down for something...

Cigar would be excellent, I love that color

Well, it seems that a MTO order like this is not an easy thing to do, we can try it anyway if you want

I was already planning to give this a shot. So it's not a big deal to me.
