Thanks, Mike. Having just gotten the AoM Whiskey WTB and a Ravello LWB on the way by May (so AoM says), I was debating if a Whiskey LWB offers any additional versatility. Seems as if not much. I will probably hold off in this case and get it down the line, if needed. Much rather focus on getting styles I don't yet own such as NST and LHS.

My goodness, that is one nice boot. A perfect mix functionality and style, with a little dash of 'cool' thrown in. May I ask who does this model?

Thanks a Million Shawn.

 

I would have completely stocked my rotation with mostly Alden long ago, but I could never figure out how to play the Alden game...

 

Until I met Mike...:)

 

Now, I am on several lists for models that I have always wanted.

 

And have procured several others.

 

There are a few makers that I am waiting and preparing to get cordovan from:

 

1.  Whiskey Shell Bal Boot-Paid for and anxiously awaiting their arrival.  (Enzo B.)

2.  Ravello/Cognac Bal Boot-Preparing for and anxiously planning their specs.  (Vass)

 

I am sooo close to finishing out my shoe rotation....

 

Alden's I am awaiting:

 

1.  Whiskey SWB on Tremont

2.  Ravello Medallion Tod on Plaza or Ravello LWB  (Probably whichever comes first)

2.  Color #8 974 or 975

4.  Color #8 Plaza Last boot

 

There a a couple others, but this is the jest of it.

 

Thanks!

Seems Fedex is walking my 975s to GA. Took 15hrs to go 32 miles. Est. date was yesterday. Now it just says N/A. Just hope they didn't disapper.

As you can see this particular whiskey batch (from SF) was too dark and close to Ravello.

Thanks! Based on the Whiskey WTB I received, this was one of my fears in ordering the Whiskey LWB from Alden DC. I'm getting a ravello soon and didn't want the same shade. The WTB isn't the light whiskey shade (which is a good thing) and I think Alden DC's Whiskey is probably the same shade as production occurred around the same time. I'll wait to see what ravello shade I get before considering a whiskey LWB.

I believe I posted this is the past (all my LWB with the whiskey and ravello next to each other):

Pair of walking shoes on the dreaded Modified last, with one of the more egregious flaws I've run across in buying 2nds.

Same for my seconds - no update since Wednesday. Seems like there's been some delays due to the weather. I wonder if it has to do with Fedex since I know USPS contracts with Fedex for air.

Great collection.  The natty cxl with natural welt and edge is such a great looking shoe. Love the natty ptb as well.  One of my favorites.

Where's the last place yours were updated? Mines Springfield, MA. I guess inclement weather could have been an issue, but typically it would show some delays on tracking. Regardless, unless a FEDEX guy comes knocking on my door with USPS Indys in hand... It's a bummer. Was really excited for today! Plus I thought it would be excellent to have the entire free weekend to decide whether or not to keep. Oh well, in good time.

Leffot is doing a presale on that shoe Monday:

My seconds purchase was last updated early Thursday morning leaving Springfield, MA. Not a peep since then. I had another package going to an SF forum member in Austin, and that hasn't been updated since early Thursday either. Both were supposed to be delivered yesterday.
