you might try alden san francisco. this used to be a standard makeup from them, i have the black version. i would suggest calling and asking, they are always helpful on the phone.

I got them cropped super high, so that length is accurate. The opening is 15"

Are there any cap toe boots on Barrie in 11EE or 10.5EEE? Tempted to go with shell if it exists.

That would bring the total wait time for these up to over 2 years.

I can understand long waits for some rare shell colors (well, I can't really understand it all that well, but I'll tolerate it for now), but this is a pretty standard suede makeup, nothing fancy...I can't understand why it's taking so long. I'm officially done with pre-orders from Alden. Once I get all the ones I've been waiting on for the past 2-3 years, no more pre-orders for me. Wait times will probably be 5+ years pretty soon. Hell, the Ravello Brixton is only 2 more years away from a 5+ year wait!

That is insane for a pair of suede LWBs. You are right that that makeup should be pretty standard.

After the delay with the Epaulet Brixton (though I am in on the whiskey order and not the Ravello) I too am done with Alden pre-orders with any retailer except for Leffot. It seems like when Leffot does a pre-order they have already confirmed the makeup so the wait times are not nearly as long (I waited only about 4 months for my saddle shoes and naval boot this spring).

^^ With the exception of a color 8 boot from JGilbert, I have never participated in an Alden pre-order. That said, I have a lot of exotic shell models. There is hope.

The suede LWB delay is a head scratcher.

Crap, I forgot all about the whiskey Brixtons.
How long has it been now?

Have you seen anything else? Thanks for any leads.

This is one of my favorite aberdeen-blucher stock shoes...
