post #109516 of 122416

IS the rare shell game relegated to phone calls and luck? Im not sure how the lists work (if anyone can be put on them). Anyone have any recommendations on where to start? I know its a tremendously long waiting game but I would love to maybe one day own cigar, ravello, whiskey LWB (like probably everyone else on this forum), DC cap toe, whiskey/ravello WT boot... Basically everything :slayer:

Give Yenni at Brick and Mortar a call. Or Kathy at Alden DC.

I'm curious as well. I've been to the DC store two weeks ago and to Madison just yesterday. They looked at me as if I was crazy asking for Whiskey or Cigar cordovan. Is there a secret handshake? :)

Phone calls and luck have resulted in all my light colored shells

Right place right time works sometimes. Otherwise, call Kathy at DC and get to know Ed Z at TSM really well.

Thank you Akeem. I actually asked about the cigar indy boot list at TSM when I was there a few weeks back. I haven't yet taken the time to make calls elsewhere. Ill be sure to do that when Im (i.e. my wallet) is ready to pounce LOL

Trust me, your wallet is never ready. I am on 6-7 preorders right now. If they come close together I will be in the poor house, probably on the streets (due to the SO kicking me out!)

order first, regret later, then sell something to make you feel better

the sf store can put you on a list for lwb, ptb, or chukka in those shades.
