No, I started this thread a long time ago because I was a fan but kept going back and forth since I don't have a trigger finger. Waiting on funds for cordo lw.
That is a great place to start. Don't worry about a plantation sole or anything until you get a classic shoe or two. I like the crepe sole but I would not pass on a shoe that I like that did not have it. It is a nice sole but so is the double water-lock. Maybe you should just wait and fly into Leather Soul Beverly Hills and get personally measured by Tom at the grand opening!
Did anybody preorder the Alden Indy Brown Chromexcel boots from North River Outfitters? Has anybody received them yet? Their site says that they have started shipping.
I emailed them today to check in on my order (Ordered mid-Jan) - they said:
We have been shipping out these orders daily for customers who purchased in November and December. We expect delivery within the next few weeks for your order.
