TSM does accept orders on items that have already been sold during the mayhem.

As an additional data point, this round I ordered the CS lady told me that now they're checking stock in two places - they have their internal inventory system, but things get sold so fast that they literally post what is being sold on an instant message system which can be searched by the other CS reps. Given that we're in 2015 there's got to be a better real-time inventory system - haha!

I received similar call from DC re Ravello cap toe boots, will be my first Grant last..looking very much forward to giving them a spin and hoping the recent streak of Ravello shade perfection holds!

True. When I called back for the LHS the rep said let me hold/grab (can't quite remember) those for you so no one else gets them. So maybe it's a little better.

Both of mine were picked up at 5:03pm and left CT at 9:29pm. Estimates for Friday.

I treat these TSM irregular sales like the day after Christmas sales, intense competition with only very short supply for the most desirable pairs. The smart ones are onsite at the shop and when the sale starts they grab the good stuff before lists make it out. I've been told the irregulars are not on display in the store anymore. I feel comfortable in saying there's some back door ways of finding what's on the list sooner than the vast majority. I don't think that's gonna change so I just deal with it.

I'm more interested in getting on pre-order lists and locking in a spot for specific models I want. I'd rather pay the normal rate, issue free and no worries. I don't mind scoring an irregular pair and always look forward to the hunt!

Excellent. What size did you get?

I wonder if most of the allotment went to SF smile.gif

I got an 8 and hope they work out..I'm 7.5d Barrie; and for Chukkas I should probably go down to 7.. Recently scored for me grails of Cigar AND Whiskey chukkas in 7.5d and they are easily a 1/2 size too large..I will likely sell one of them (both bnib) then wait another couple years for them to come around again to get 7s..

My friend, it was a bit of both. That was at the crack of dawn and they are on the darker side of whiskey.

Congras! Hope 8D works for you, Mike!

You are 7.5D in barrie and those 7.5 chukkas are too big for you? Thats strange.

So you're saying I can have a pending charge on my card, and since I didn't receive an email I may have a false positive for an order?

Still no confirmation email after 24hrs... Guess I lost

They definitely need to upgrade their inventory software
