That's strange that they did that for that order. They are certainly not redirecting any shell to this order though, as far as I can tell. It's getting shell from an upcoming shipment of shell they'll will be getting this coming month. I'm not sure why skoak's order was canceled, but I would be shocked if they would ever do that. No way a reddit GMTO ranks higher than skoak.

I got a pair of these as well, seems to be a problem with the sole on the right shoe (minor), otherwise I love them.

Anyone pick something up from the Shoemart Irregulars? I was looking at the Wingtip Calf boot 44623HC

There was a nice #8 George boot Barrie size 10. I decided not to call, but was tempted to.

$775, ETA January 2016.


FYI, this boot will be made with mid-tan (brown) antique sole edge.

Somewhat off topic, but it looks like Viberg is doing a pre order for a Mahogany shell service boot Friday. Is Mahogany shell like a color 6?

For everyone who wants Alden or nothing, best of luck, the Brixton boot is beautiful. But as Michigan Planner said, that pre-order has been about 4-5 years in the waiting.

As an aside, I'm especially grateful now that I have my Frans Boone #8 plain toe boots with brass. I'm sure people here have seen that on the Epaulet thread, it was announced Alden will no longer be making any more #8 with brass (or #8 with suede) due to too much of the dye staining the materials. So get them now if you can.

I fell victim to this.  I would send a pointed email about it to someone, but I don't know who should get it.

I trust your answer more than my memory, but I swore Sean said it was black edge/welt.

Nevertheless, still grabbed a pair. Looking forward to getting back into a pair

Oh. My. God. Those are hot! How do service boots compare to Alden sizing?
