It's true that there are no refunds on pre-orders, but otherwise you're golden.
Good, because these just arrived, and Im not really feeling them. I think I may return them. I need a classic black dress shoe for interview/funeral type situations that can I can also wear with jeans and less formal stuff. I dont think these feel right for that purpose. I like my 966 brown Alden wingtips, I may get a pair of 967 black wingtips for this purpose. Thoughts? http://www.blackbirdballard.com/Alde...hoe_15082.html
Figured I would throw up some pictures of the other special makeups that Blackbird is doing. They have these really intricate back stories for each model, pretty cool makeups in general.
I like this first pair a lot by the way, sole is hot:
I know it's a vague answer but, it depends on what you're going for. I do long distance backpacking, so I own everything from their thickest performance weight down to their standard black heathered ones. I suggest going to somewhere that carries them near you and see which you like best.

Did you get the new model 405, if so where? I just bought the Indy 405 Chrome Excel from Shoemart but there was a price increase to $450. I'm wondering if you paid for the older version but got the higher quality. Please post pics if you can...
