Hello all, long time admirer of Alden shoes and the collectors here! Thought I should start contributing!

In Chicago for valentines weekend and brought the #8 Jcrew PCT with me. Iphone shots just don't do them justice.

Dude, the euro is as low as it's been in something like 9 years.
Now is the time!

Congrats on the Whiskey PTBs!

If you actually hear of any pre-order lists for Whiskey or Cigar NST boots I'd love to get a PM, those are definitely two of my grail boots, especially in Whiskey.

And if there's anyone who can make it happen, it's @mdubs! He's better than Santa Claus.

Not yet, but working to change that! Please bear in mind this is a long and slow process, so please don't PM me, I am not taking lists for these and nothing is no where near confirmed.

2 years in Mike and I think I've finally figured out my shoe size. No one outside of this forum could possibly understand that. It's strange because everyone raves about the 975 (and rightfully so) but I would wear mine and they just didn't give me the same 'feel' as my other Aldens. Now I get to enjoy what the rest of you have been experiencing for quite some time. I love these B widths on my feet.

Much thanks Wooderson. Giving them the ole 'Mac Break-in Method' right now.

Thanks JK. I actually passed on these during the summer after a recent spending binge and have been kicking myself ever since. I just casually brought it up when talking to Kathy and was floored when she said yes. I was so shocked that I never even asked the price. Sometimes it really is better to be lucky than good.

I'm also #1 on the list for the cigar captoes. When I called a month or two ago, Kathy told me they'd be due in February. Do you have any updates?

Much thanks MM. Not really. She told me but after she said yes to the whiskey, I forgot everything else she told me.

Two more things. First, a family shot for color comparision. Whiskey, whiskey, ravello, ravello. Second, shameless plug/PSA, I'll be putting a once-worn 8.5E Leffot Grenwich boot in the marketplace later today. Anyone interested before then can PM me.

The Whiskey looks great. I take it thats a B width as well? That is quite the find.

Last Kathy told me was that they started production end of November, as far as she knew. So given the break, and the weather now. I'd expect end of Mar, April time frame. Thats just my guess though.

A delicate process of being subtle, but not annoying or overbearing, to get the seed planted. If only Inception was real.

This post also makes it sounds like AoSD is getting off the ground and expanding. smile.gif

Thanks csmitty. Actually these are a 'D' width and I'm fine with that since ultimately they will become a casual shoe. Plus, my experience is that the 975 always looked disproportionately 'clunky' on my feet and I'm not really sure why. I rarely wear suits but do dress on the higher end of business casual and the 975 just seemed to look out of place so I leaned more toward my sleeker Aberdeen-lasted shoes. I do not get the same feeling with these whiskeys, even though they are a D width. Go figure.

I also concur with what Kathy told you. I'm pretty sure it was March/April with the caveat being how much Alden has been shut down recently due to the weather.
