Just going by my experience. Ordered six pairs sometime last spring/summer (my first buy from the list; don't judge me:) ), returned couple. Anyways, considering I was a first time buyer, even then they didn't object to ordering six pairs at that time.

Was able to snag these Anatomica PT boots.

Was caught totally unprepared for TSM irregular email today…which is really too bad because they, for once, had some amazing selections in my size, like shell tankers, and a nice tobacco chamois wing tip… :violin:

Its all good my friend.

 

I am all for Capitalism and what not, but someone buying 18 pairs seems a bit overkill....

 

Unless they are reselling them...

Totally agree. Looks like someone bought them to resell. Ebay will rat 'em out soon. 

post #104766 of 122416

My heart is NOT to bust someone's chops over buying 18 pairs of irregulars...

 

My heart is that the fine gents on this thread and at other places like this would be able to score Alden's and not get gouged from reseller's in Timbuctu trying to get 3 grand for a pair of seconds.

 

Keep em in the community.

 

Later on, I have a bit of a cool story to tell concerning all this.

 

Back to work for now...I already wasted too much time having fun on this thread...:crazy:

 

Thanks!

This is Reverse Tobacco chamois right?

Sounds like most sizes had some decent stuff compared to the last 2. Shell Tankers and Chamois boots sounds awesome. Would have jumped on one of those too.

I went back and checked the 11D 2 hours after I ordered the 975. Thought the #8 LHS model number looked a bit funny. Googled it and turns out it was the BB Unlined LHS. 06603. Couldn't hit redial fast enough. Thought no way I had a shot, but after 20mins wait, still there and on the way. smile.gif Good 2 for 1 on some staples.

I had been hoping BB would do a restock but they said they had no back order last I checked.

Here's to hoping the blemishes are minor.

Yup.

Anyone mind PMing me the 10.5/11? Normally always get the emails but perhaps Gmail is acting up in my best interest.

Yeap, and jealous. Wish they had made my list. Look like the Leffot version.

Thanks for the input, really appreciate it. I'll think some more, might end up with the "Dr Jones" from FransBoone (black edge) and the WT boot on Plaza (antique edge) from Yenni.

Finally got through , but alas, the color 8 plaza PT boot was gone.  Good thing I have the aforementioned full price version coming soon.  :sarcasm:

post #104775 of 122416
Called around 65 times before getting through... Waited 15 minutes and everything I wanted was gone. They emailed me 7.5 and I saw a 403 that I've been meaning to pickup, so back on the dials. Got Em.
