Plaza last Indy
with no pull tab no speed hooks
that would be a nice looking boot
That's what we are trying to put together. We need two more participants to take it to an Alden retailer. Info here: http://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0Ar2rc84qazhmdDFGX1NkSnN6R2xpa2duS2xCTi1uMkE#gid=0.
We're still trying to get additional participants. The makeup was initially proposed for chocolate/dark brown suede. Some folks, including myself, would alternatively be interested in snuff. Add your info to the google spreadsheet if you're interested in being included:

Alden isn't doing any special orders in special shell colors, even to large retailers unless they are ordering a style that they have been doing for a while. Even those types of special orders are not being done often because Alden can't get enough of the lighter shell colors. I was told by quite a few contacts that it may take a couple of years.
I'd probably be interested in #3 or #4 with preference for #3.
Alternatively, what about asking a retailer to make the original Thor boot through Carmina?
