How often do group MTO batches get made by Alden? Is it basically just a bunch of guys on SF that get together and put in an agreed upon order?

post #29402 of 122416

I'm still waiting for my first MTO.  Mr. Chorizo, any update?

Grenson quality runs from pretty crappy to not bad at all.
I've got a couple pairs of Rag & Bone X Grensons that aren't bad at all. The BBBFs seem to be a bit better made than the R&Bs.
I'm happy with the pairs I have.

No argument here ( I didn't see the previous posts) and  no hard feelings, despite the bruised and bloodied throat.  blush.gif

barring that I was offered a full refund, but I would feel like a shit having the retailer take the loss. can i expect him to take every pair outside into the sunshine. I think not.
they have been really good to me too in other ways; I can't justify seeing them take the loss.
i can however justify Alden taking the loss and I am still considering this. the retailer seemed to think that alden wouldn't do anything but said he would contact the rep and see what he thinks. we took a picture, so i am curious to see how this plays out.
i am sure that if i call alden and express my dissatisfaction they would do something.

I got the same feedback from Alden via the retailer I worked with (Alden Madison Ave); nothing they could do. Sounds like a lovely boot you have, hope it works out for you. Hope that Uncle Mac is right about getting them re-dyed at the factory. Maybe they will send you back a rich #4 smile.gif

Finally got my 403 in from NRO...waited about 10 days...but at least they were brand new....no scratches..

 

time to hit the pavement of the 808...woohoo..

 

but in all seriousness....anyone do anything special for them or just brush..brush....polish as needed? shoe horns when in sleep mode?

I use Renovateur on mine, wipe off with damp cloth after wearing, brush and then shoe trees. The Renovateur gives them a nice shine without being too much.

These are great prices. I paid $425 for the alpine grain. $400 for cordovan is a no brainer.

The Brooks Brothers Grant last seems to fit better than my other Grant Last as well. smile.gif

+1 on Renovateur. May try Neatsfoot oil.

Being an Alden fan tests your self restraint... As an owner of Cigar captoe boots, PTBs and longwings, I don't need the brixton boot, but it is so tempting...

The black Indys look great! (As do the rest).
