Perhaps. But from what I have seen here and other threads, getting a MTO going with Alden is a long, difficult, uncertain proposition -- and I mean uncertain as in virtually zero chance of getting it done even with time. It seems like it would be much easier to simply go to another manufacturer -- as threads on the forum illustrate -- that is more geared towards MTO. In other words, it appears that MTO with Alden is, at the moment, swimming upstream whereas it is welcomed by other manufacturers, I suspect because it is their business model.
I am happy to be helfpul, however, so if anyone is interested in any of these make-ups, please PM me expressing your interest: (1) longwing tassel loafer in snuff suede; longwing tassel loafer in tan suede; (3) NST blucher in snuff suede; (4) NST blucher in tan suede, please PM me with your interest. I am thinking each is on either a single leather sole or a single waterlock sole. If you PM me, let me know your preference as to sole.
If I get a minimum of 12 settled on a shoe, I will approach an Alden retailer about doing it.
