I find it funny the preorder email got to me at 12:38.

At least I have my Whiskey to look forward to this afternoon, in more ways than one.

PSA for people who are interested in the tanker boot on color 8 shell. I just found out from Context that their color tanker 8 has an antique edging, a feature that most of us were waiting for in the Leffot version. This was confirmed by Context via email, however their website still shows the older version with a black edge. The only difference versus the Leffot version at this point is the reverse welt vs. flat welt on Leffot.


They have a list going with 7 spots left, as soon as they fill those the order will be submitted. Email them at support@contextclothing.com to get in on the preorder.


I don't work for Context but thought I'd let everyone know and get the order submitted sooner =). Full make up detail:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Last: Barrie

Design: Tanker

Material: color 8 shell

Welt: reverse

Edge: antique

Sole: commando

Hooks+eyelets

Pull tab
-D

Thanks for this - I just paid the $100 deposit to add myself to the order. 

I'm in too! (how many until 12?)

I got in for the Leffot #8 NST shoe. I have had my eye on that for a while and just recently tried the Aberdeen last and discovered how much I like the fit of it.

7.5 E on those naval boots were among the first to go. Congratulations to those that got in on the order. Looks warm and nice in there from the cold sidewalk outside...

I have a pair of these.  Love the leather.  Absolutely beat the crap out of them this winter and just cleaned them up a little (brushed with a little water).  You wouldn't know the abuse they took.

I really wish I would've cancelled my meeting and been on high alert for those Leffot Naval boots! I saw the email during my meeting, yes I surf the net while people jabber about nothing, then logged on after the meeting and kept thinking, this is a glitch right...refresh, refresh. uh check sytleforum alden, what's going on...oh crap, they really did sell out...okay, email Leffot...waiting, waiting, regret, banging head against wall, Kicking myself literally. I hope they email me back and say, sure we can add you what's your size" hahaha

I guess they will run this again later this year? I've joined a cult...this is insanity. decisions.gif

It is indeed insanity, though a very aesthetically pleasing kind of insanity...

^^ Looks like dandy shoe care to me.  If so, Alex is an artist.  Those are ridiculous.

The only one caveat is you may be required to pay full price up front, but that's not so bad of a trade for getting the shoe you want.

Granted i was a non-stock size, but still worth a try. 

I emailed and am a stock size and just paid a deposit amount.

I inquired today if my local Alden retailer O'Conners would be getting any loafers for the Spring/Summer collection and no luck for stock to try on in store, they did offer to order in a pair in snuff unlined flex if I wanted and checked the current price... $690 CAD  :eek:. I had to politely decline having them brought in for me. I was speaking to him about a few other things and said how I was thinking of the 975 still too and he told me the upcoming new pricing on those... $900 CAD. 

 

 

They do have a pair left in my size at the old pricing of $775 so I have them on hold and considering picking them up on Monday. I figure no time like the present if I am going to snag a classic considering the 975 is priced just over $700 USD on the Alden SF.
