Wow, beautiful boots, beautiful photos! Are you intentionally sticking with Barries due to fit/comfort, or is it just coincidental that you've liked/found these configurations?post #63918 of 12241610/24/13 at 6:49pmQuote:Originally Posted by sorabji
So I bought a pair of Aldens on eBay, and they were stolen -- someone stole the USPS box from my front doorstep. If you see these Aldens pop up for sale anywhere please send me a PM.
Very angry right now.
That's a shame. I absolutely love Alden's snuff suede. Great looking boot. I hope you find it, if not, I hope you find another one. All the best...post #63919 of 12241610/24/13 at 6:52pmQuote:
No need to apologize. I hate signature required. I work for a living and it's tough to make arrangements. Fortunately I've been lucky but I truly feel for you. They look like sweet boots at a great price.post #63920 of 12241610/24/13 at 6:55pmQuote:
Stealing mail is a federal crime covered under Section 1708 of Title 18 of the United States Code. Be sure to file a report AND check with your homeowner's policy, it might be covered!post #63921 of 12241610/24/13 at 7:02pmQuote:
My maildude doesn't even leave the sign and redeliver slip anymore. They just forward it to the local non-post office package center for pickup. Thankfully that place is fairly convenient for me.post #63922 of 12241610/24/13 at 7:12pmQuote:
Thanks! I like the Barrie for fit and comfort, it works really well for me. I tried Grant boots in several sizes/widths and just could not get it to work for me; D was too narrow in the front and E was too wide in the heel. With an 8D Barrie, it is like someone traced my foot, fits beautifully. I do like the look of the last too, looks great on boots which is what I normally wear.post #63923 of 12241610/24/13 at 7:15pmpost #63924 of 12241610/24/13 at 7:16pmGot my Whiskey LWB's ordered from TSM this past weekend. And while I'm no expert I can say without equivocation that these shoes are not seconds. They are absolutely flawless and I couldn't be more pleased.
I have examined these with a fine tooth comb and there is not one flaw with these shoes. I could not be happier. Timing is truly everything.post #63925 of 12241610/24/13 at 7:18pmpost #63926 of 12241610/24/13 at 7:25pmpost #63927 of 12241610/24/13 at 7:51pmpost #63928 of 12241610/24/13 at 8:01pmQuote:
this last run didn't come to light from either. a member on here stopped into the store, saw the prices etc, and came in and posted here.
shoemart probably moved $20,000 worth of alden in 5 dayspost #63929 of 12241610/24/13 at 8:20pmQuote:Originally Posted by wildstar

My sentiments and experience with both lasts to the letter! Congrats on a great collection.post #63930 of 12241610/24/13 at 8:32pmQuote:
HUGE thanks to the original poster on the invetory at TSM.....I likely would have not ever purchase these (ravello NSTs) at full retail even if I cam across them somewhere.....thank you, thank you, thank you!!!
I am with you KW.....ravello, whiskey, cigar......yes, please!!!!
Too bad the line must be drawn at some point......at least for now.
