Interesting on LS' page about Mr. Humble's visit they note the Alden shell shortage. This has been the tune for the rarer colors (cigar, ravello, whiskey,etc.) but has this extended to #8? Interestingly I don't hear of the same issues with Carmina or Vass about #8 shell.
I wonder what will ever happen to my whiskey LWB order from Alden Madison. I wish I knew Alden SF had a run, I would have picked up my pair from them.
According to my contact at LSW, the answer is yes. Black shell too.
I can assure you an 8 d is not available lol. I had the gentleman who helped me digging in the back room. He stated they had a few pairs left, I didn't inquire beyond that. TBH I was mote concerned with what they didn't have .
