If you ever want someone to take those off your hands then you know where to find me! An unworn pair of sweet sweet ravello boots could become a burdensome thing and I would hate to see you get stressed out about it. Seriously though, let me know if you guys are getting together in Philly. I would definitely be up for grabbing a drink or two sometime.
@fitzcooper We were actually just talking about getting together. I'll let you know.post #114051 of 1224168/1/15 at 9:57ampost #114052 of 1224168/1/15 at 10:23ampost #114053 of 1224168/1/15 at 11:17amQuote:
Unfortunately Alden will no longer do individual MTO. Most vendors offer their own designs and people obtain them by either getting on a list (Alden DC, TSM, B+M/AoC) or joining in on a pre-order when they are announced (Leffot, Epaulet, AoM). It's unusual to modify any design details for those orders.
Alternatively, you could gather 12 interested people and get a group order going with Alden of Madison and Yenni from B+M. They are usually limited to color 8 and black shell and the expected wait time is quite long.
Exotic shell like cigar, ravello, and whiskey are usually off limits to any group orders.
Hope that helps,

Looks like dark on the photo, but not sure if that's of the actual makeup. Would love if it was antique.
Edit: Just spoke to Sean, it's the dark edge (as pictured). Got on the pre-order anyway (thanks, JSO1!). Guess beggars can't be choosers. Could always send them off to Randy the cobbler...
