One could take it a step further and say that there is no better way for company's to increase profits than to constrain the supply chain and then strategically release product as needed at a premium price. I would just every to exercise patience as makes and models do become available. Yes, you need to be plugged in and act quickly but they are there to be had. Hell, the guy with the long rant I think owned no shell like 90 days ago and now probably has close to 20 pairs...

we need more shell, their isnt enough of it. its reflected in the 30% + price difference compared to calf and the 1 year+ wait that many retailers/shoe manufacturers quote when inquiring about the availability of shell.

Anyone have the CXL Color 8 belt? I wonder how close it is to Alden Color 8? I don't feel I need a shell belt if that matches fairly well.

I hav the Rancourt Carmel belt and shoe and love them.  The Carmel is definitely lighter than Whiskey but noty a huge difference.

nephew,
thank you
why worry about exotic as long as king#8 is available
post #54178 of 122416
Don L - those Alt Wien's are fantastic, wish they were available in my size.

RE: shell shortage - I am completely buying into the hype that there is a shortage, because it is the only logical way to explain why the Epaulet Ravello Brixton pre-order is nearly at 30 months and counting.

Also note that we are not seeing any new shells being released other than Color 8 and Black currently. 

 

I believe Alden is focusing on their bread and butter models like the 975, 9901, etc., since they likely want to be able to supply those as a priority over anything ravello, whiskey or cigar, and also over any special make-ups.
