UPDATE ON THOR BOOT, KIND OF:
Talked to Kathy Flynn today & no update. Kathy said Alden has no word on when the needed Cigar would be available.
I realize that this MTO has dragged on & if anyone has changed their mind and wants to pull out please send me a PM. The main concern of Kathy was the size of the Thor order, thirty eight pair of cigar shell boots. That is a large MTO for Alden with cigar being in demand, other than that Kathy didn't think the order would be a problem getting confirmed by Alden for the design is tasteful one.
On another note, I proposed the idea of a non shell MTO in suede or CXL and Kathy was receptive to the idea. If anyone want to propose a CXL or suede shoe or boot MTO and we can get a consensus this idea could move forward. I look forward to see if there's an interest in a non shell MTO.
Again if you ever need to contact me in regards to the Thor boot to see where we are feel free. Kathy will contact me if there's any update, but I'll probably check in every six months with her.
