That works for me as well.

Based on initial feedback, it looks like the most popular boots are a whiskey Indy boot on the Trubalance last with a commando sole, and a Ravello cap toe boot on the Barrie last with a double leather sole. For the Indy boot, there's still a question of hooks vs. full eyelets and machine vs. hand stitching. For the cap toe boot, there's a leaning toward full eyelets.

If you are on the list for either of these boots and are OK with the last and sole choices, please PM me regarding your preference for the other details (hooks/no hooks, stitching, welts, etc.). I will use those PM responses to put together the final designs.

If you are not OK with the last and sole choices, please let me know so I can remove you from the interest list.

There has been talk of a third design, and a few have shown interest in a cigar boot, but there has not been consensus on general style and other details. My personal preference is for a jumper boot in cigar, but I'd also be interested in a cigar wing tip boot. The latter seems like a good way to round out the trio, as we have an Indy and a cap toe already. Thoughts?

just an idea, google docs is a simple and easy way to manage things like this. you can make a public doc, point people there, and people can type in their choice. very easy for you

also I saw you're from Boston, go B's!

Great idea! I created a spreadsheet here. There's a page for the whiskey Indy and another for the Ravello cap toe. Folks, please only update values in the columns next to your member name. Oh, and GO B's!!!

Oooh, if this cigar wingtip is going to be a commando sole on a plaza last count me out. I don't like commando soles and the plaza doesn't fit me at all.

Oddly enough I independently sent an email to the Alden store in DC asking about whiskey indys about 2 weeks before all of this started

Entered my info on the spreadsheet.

Nice organization, the spreadsheet was a great idea. When do you think we should finalize the designs?

I figure we should finalize the designs this weekend, then leave the designs available for people to opt in/out until next weekend. I can check with Kathy and Steve this coming Monday to see if they can order the finalized designs. How does that sound?

That sounds good. Hope we can persuade a retailer to go through with these orders.

Okay, what about a five eyelet perforated straight tip balmoral shoe in Ravello? Similar to this http://www.alden-of-carmel.com/index...ht_Tip_260.htm
post #74 of 1009
Count me in for Whiskey Indy , Either commando or leather sole.
post #75 of 1009
count me in for interested in for Ravello Cap toe boot; barrie last, perforated cap toe, pull tab on back, full eyelets all the way.

another cool idea (though not as blinged out) is the natural chromexcel LHS. the one on shoe mart is awesome, but the sole sucks (http://www.theshoemart.com/alden-men..._calfskin.html)

i'd be down to do that in a leather or plantation crepe (a la trickers, sanders) sole.
