I do not think so...its just that since I had the opportunity to specify an exact size I took the liberty to do so....

I had been sized by the guys at Alden SF as an EE on the trubalance...and so went with that when I had the opportunity on the barrie..

Alas, they are a tad too wide...not enough t to make them unwearable...but enough that I wished I had stuck with my normal Barrie sizing.

I was also told (by Alden SF) when boots/shoes get recrafted by Alden they typically come back more narrow...??

So sad to hear about the #4 boot not working out but this Thor boot has been consuming my brain over the last few days, very very tempting. When is the deadline to submit your info?

I think we were supposed to know by mid-September if the Thor boot was confirmed by Alden, so you probably have plenty of time to get your name in on the order.

I am very excited by this makeup.  It's got to be one of the best looking boots I've seen.  I am really hoping it comes through.

Update on the "Thor" boot. Kathy contacted me today and wanted all the details on the boot including the full names of the people who are interested, their email addresses and their sizes to get things ready for when she meets with her sales rep in September to present this make-up. Right now 29 people have expressed an interest in the "Thor" boot & I never bothered to ask everyone for their full names, I'll talk to Kathy on Tuesday and see if this is necessary at this stage. I'm going to submit the plans to Kathy this Tuesday and a pic of the actual "Thor" boot.

Cigar Shell
Perforated Cap Toe
Barrie Last
360 degree Split-Reverse Welt
Antique Edge Trim
Double Oiled Waterlock Sole
Matched Agatine Eyelets
All Eyelets - No speedhooks
No pulltabs

I'll keep everyone posted as I know more.

I think it is a good idea to pm CTYGGG our full names so that he can pass them on to Kathy.  I suspect that if a number of us are her repeat customers, this may carry more sway with Alden.

Update - The "Thor" boot list is now closed & no longer open to orders.

Talked to Kathy today & submitted the list of interested parties in the "Thor" boot to her. Under her recommendation we closed the order down to the 35 people who have already expressed an interest by PM'ing me.

Kathy will need the names of the people who are interested. You can PM me your names & I will correlate them and send them to Kathy or she will email everyone & get them, either way will work. Once Kathy has all the info she will write up the order & send it to Alden. Alden will them confirm it or not (Kathy was inclined to think that it will get confirmed), then it would go into production once the cigar shell is available. ETA on this boot worst case is 1 year, Kathy was hoping for next spring.

Since Kathy is nice enough to take MTOs from us I ask that everyone who has expressed an interest is a serious buyer. Cost in my estimation would be $710, plus factor in the usual January Alden price increase of 5-8%, & it comes to $750-775, ballpark.

One thing to note, while this is an MTO Alden doesn't always follow instructions very well and have in the past changed specs on a make-up without Kathy knowing (case in point the whiskey Indy MTO). If this happens and say something is changed I hope that we all can be understanding and don't leave Kathy holding the bag on these boots. If we keep a good relationship with Kathy I could see 1-2 Alden MTOs a year coming to fruition.

Any questions or anything that I missed?

CTYGGG, that is awesome!  Then it's important for everyone to pm CTYGGG as soon as possible so we can get this moving along.  I'm excited by this prospect and sure hope Alden confirms it.

 

You are a star for coordinating this, CTYGGG, however it turns out!  worship.gif

This is fantastic news! Can't thank you enough for this CTYGGG, pm sent.
post #315 of 477
^ Fantastic! Thanks for taking the lead in working with Kathy, CTYGGG. it would be great for this to open up an opportunity for regular MTOs.

Do you need contact info (like email), or just full name?
