My guess is that we are buying against a confirmed order. Leffot orders a run of sizes, Alden confirms it, then Leffot opens it up for orders.

That sounds even more right. Isn't Leffot one of the few that only opens up pre-orders when they have a confirmed order?

I think Leffots places an order and Alden confirms how many pairs they may make of the style. Leffots then breaks it down into sizes to offer. Therefore, the allotment is a finite number.

 

EDIT: Or they place an order with a certain number of sizes. Alden then probably counters with what they may actually produce, which is what Leffots then presells.

I'm not sure that's the case.  For instance, the Day Tripper boots have been pre-ordered (as in the pre-order is closed), but Alden has not confirmed the order.

I guess I should have started that statement with "For the most part..."

Those are killer without speed hooks!

^ Maybe the nicest non-shell Indy I've ever seen. Frans Boone's models kill it.

Great looking boot but if it's on a non plaza last i don't know if the value is there (470 euro isn't much more than full price here in the states but it's no bargain certainly)

Unfortunately the pleasing aesthetics of factory all-eyelets cannot be obtained by switching speedhooks out for eyelets due to the gap required frown.gif

I prefer the J a Crew with muted stitching. I also think I prefer the current Leffot plain toe pre-order to either. I own the J Crew Indy but love that Leffot boot

^ Yeah, price makes it a no go for me but beautiful nevertheless.

Thanks for everything you provide.


nephew,

thank you
