really digging these, but not sure i can justify a fourth boot in this colorpost #54108 of 1224166/26/13 at 4:53pmpost #54109 of 1224166/26/13 at 4:56pmQuote:Originally Posted by masaccio
After checking the UPS app nearly every 30 minutes since my J. Crew order was processed on Monday, I see that my new Flex-Toe Suede Chukkas are finally en route. Expected to arrive on Friday, at the office, of course. Need a Mac method break in and some wearing before they are revealed to the wife, so I can truthfully say "oh, these? I got them a while ago!"
go luck in dealing with your wife on this matterpost #54110 of 1224166/26/13 at 5:00pmpost #54111 of 1224166/26/13 at 5:02pmpost #54112 of 1224166/26/13 at 5:05pmpost #54113 of 1224166/26/13 at 5:08pmpost #54114 of 1224166/26/13 at 5:11pmQuote:Originally Posted by rydenfan

$725 for Color 8! Yikes....if there was an exotic shell version of these they would be close to $800.post #54115 of 1224166/26/13 at 5:20pmpost #54116 of 1224166/26/13 at 5:26pm
I'm looking to pick up my first pair of shell Aldens and was eyeing the antique edge #8 PTBs from the Bureau Belfast for a little while but have decided to go in the opposite direction color-wise if it exists. Are any of you aware of a retailer who stocks a 990 with a black welt stitch rather than the tan one found on most? I've haven't had much luck searching the thread and many retailer websites have very low res pictures that make it difficult to tell. I do realize I could call them myself to ask but if somebody here knows that would certainly make it a lot easier.
Thankspost #54117 of 1224166/26/13 at 5:29pm
Uncle, great looking whiskey ptbs.Quote:
I don't think that cut would be a deal breaker for me. You may want to keep them as long as you're ok with them not being the advertised cxl.post #54118 of 1224166/26/13 at 5:56pmpost #54119 of 1224166/26/13 at 5:57pmQuote:
not even in black shell? what does "none available" even mean? alden has a 1 year cigar shortage, vass has a 1 year cognac shell shortage, horween factory appears to be short on even the most uninspired shell color, black. All this while Carmina continues to roll out shell shoes like it was going out of style:
Cognac Boot, Cognac Wingtip, Dark Cognac Boot, Dark Cognac Wingtip, Cognac PTB, Dark Cognac PTB, Saddle shell Boot, Saddle shell ptb, wingtip, burgundy shell, ruby shell, navy shell, black shell, green shell. loafer, punchcap, monkstrap, jodhpur, all in shell, all in a 2 month turnaround
why the hell is Alden always short on shell?post #54120 of 1224166/26/13 at 6:05pm
