Yup, that looks like the only answer really. Are there any slots open at the moment?
The strange thing is, during January I walked into Shoemart for a pair of Alden boot laces and I walked out with a great pair of Ravello SWB wingtip 9 eyelet boots.
Dammit, and I wondered whether I had gone crazy with impulse buying at $680 a pop. Now I wish I had taken every other style they had on offer.
When you ain't looking it seems to rain exotic cordovans, but when you desperately need a pair? not a shoe to be had!
Earlier this year, several makeups that I was looking for came available within about a 2 month span. Whiskey chukka, whiskey Indy, ravello lwb, cigar lwb, cigar ptb, not to mention several suede makups ups and one cxl makeup. I bought them all. You have to be opportunistic when purchasing Alden shoes.
