@intensanity, congrats on your new Leffot Indy Boots, they look terrific.

I know how that is. I have to contact them ahead of time to check if they have the pattern for the model i want in my size and last first, but it can be well worth the extra wait for that good fit.

Haha. You can see my user name was created back before he bailed from the Jets. Ironically, I dont like Revis anymore and I've always hated the Pats. I'll be pulling for the Ravens and my boy Mike Campanaro. Gotta support the Wake Forest guys.

The best thing to do is to just contact one of the main sellers like Leffot (NY) , Leathersoul (HI),  MouldedShoe (NY), Sherman Brothers (PA), TheShoeMart (CT), or any of the Alden stores to see what special makeups they are doing. Then you just need to ask them to contact Alden directly to see if they have your size and width in that last as well as the patterns to cut them. The change in color won't matter as long as they have the last and patterns.

 

I have spoken with Alden directly and had this confirmed so I have pairs from Leathersoul, Sherman Bros, and the San Fran Alden Store all without any problems. It is nice that all of the stores try to carry some different styles so you can branch out from the standard colors and styles now. 

 

If you are of a standard size, you can get anything you want if you preorder. If you are an unusual size or of a different width, you will need to check for every pair that you are interested in. So just make sure that you contact the store very soon after they post the future order, so they can check availability for you. It can take a while. 

 

If you have any other questions, feel free to ask.

Great advice! It's a little tougher to get narrow or wide sizes, but if you're patient and willing to pre-pay, it's pretty simple. A lot of members here have done it on everything from rare shell to stock models.

Gotta love Mike Campanero!  We're gonna need all the luck and help we can get, going to Foxboro...

Has anyone received anything from AOM's June exotics preorder? I ordered a Ravello LWB. Seems nothing's been delivered. Now at the 7 month mark.

Yup, just takes patience. :-)

Nope. Still patiently waiting. My Cigar LWBs from TSM just arrived this week and they were ordered around the same time. A lot of the Madison pre-orders had hand-stitching, which screws all possible sense of a timeline up.

Thanks Repp, from the prior post, they are all similar but have unique twists on the shade... :-)

Alden NY special of the 9841, which is the Black Shell Semi-Brogue made on the Hampton Last.

 

 

I believe I was added to the list for this pair in black shell at the time I ordered my Ravello LWB. Close to the Leather sole Lawyers, solid boardroom / courtroom shoes.

Although could be too casual for extreme boardroom corps. meeting were captoe oxfords with pin stripe suits or solid suits and plain toe oxfords BLACK are really all thats acceptable.

Also if you know the Judge is particular about Trad wear what they like.

 

 

Welcome to Foxboro Ravens Fans... good day

Welp...I'm officially not worthy. My lone Ravello LWBs are over in the corner feeling less than adequate. Like a first round pick who just showed up to training camp with the '27 Yankees.

Question - how do you tell the difference between a double leather sole and a single leather sole
