And thanks to all who saw the listing and didn't post it here.

 

I was bidding on those too, but didn't win them.  I thought the price would sky rocket but the winning bid seemed to be a fair price.

Can't believe I missed those in my size......censored.gif

Congrats to CSmitty......cheers.gif

Thanks. We tend to split the victories it seems. You got those Ravello tassels a few hours before I tried. smile.gif

I am glad to see that they went to someone on the forum......and at what appears to be a fair price for such a rare find......look forward to seeing them get some wear

I should have checked out the Alden of SD site earlier......amazing job!   

Yes. Mike did a good job consigning them and we reached a fair deal. Kinda wish I was on top of eBay as they showed up there first for two hours with an insane (good) BIN price. Just hard to believe there are brand new #4 pairs out there. Kinda the same with the brand new truffle she'll AE I came across. 3 years old.

Now if I could just find a #4 WTB smile.gif

Super excited about these. I love the edgy nature of this saddle being a blucher and perf-less. Thanks to Alden of SanDiego who happened to get a rare 11D in from the usual runs of 10.5s.


We need to get a retailer on a #4 makeup.


With flash.





Congras, Carl!! Those are stunning!!!

Thanks!

Hi all, an update regarding the Context color 8 Tanker preorder. I just heard from Sam, who received confirmation from Alden that the Tanker indeed has antique edging (same to these suede boots: http://www.contextclothing.com/brands/alden-shoes/alden-context-roy-boot-snuff-suede).

I hope this will alleviate some of the concerns with this preorder, thanks!

The promo clearly states that eligible items will say next to it if they are eligible. The Alden's do not say they are eligible. You can apply the code, but it will not show a discount in cart, today at least. Maybe you got lucky. I did not.

FYI - my email receipt said the same thing - and I received the shoe and discount.  I guess it was one of those rare jcrew coupon codes that worked for Aldens;  seemed like this happens maybe twice a year for a day

I'm tempted to order and see If it works for me, but I'm leaning towards natural anyways, so I may eat the cost. Thanks for the info newbiealden.

Mine is getting there... I got a text just now from her  "I had to sign for another package for you" :facepalm: 

 

I wonder what it could be because the J.Crew cadet package and whiskey LWB's from DC are both coming from UPS and haven't been delivered yet... At least she knows i'm selling a lot of stuff on ebay to recoup some of these expenses... lol

I had the same issues before, but having UPS/Fedex hold the packages at their depots fixed the problem. I learned from the best, @mdubs biggrin.gif.

It solves alot of problems. Especially when UPS comes by at 6:30pm. I usually come home first. But that late is pushing it.

For sure, the next challenge is to sneak those green shoe boxes into the house and storage. For that an oversized gym bag will do the trick smile.gif.
