Is that the TSM model?

I bought these at Alden NYC - a number of stores sell this same model (Alden NYC, TSM, Citishoes)

I agree that grant + captoe is an excellent combination. My cigar captoes (also on Grant) are one of my favorite models.

Yes that is exactly the misalignment on my shoe! except I would say there is a bit more space on my shoe than on yours. I think I will take your advice on keeping the shoes then.

Is the alignment just not important or what, it just seems strange to me if you say this issue is common.

I will post a pic later today.

^ While many may be happy accepting that, I'd also be pretty annoyed at any gap bigger than that. Some flaws happen but I don't think you are expecting too much to have better construction/attention to detail in shoes at this price level. Here we go again with a QC rant! Sorry, folks! : )

Does anyone know if the current Cigar LWB pre-order at Alden NYC will have antique or dark edge trim?

Exactly, I am not a perfectionist but at this price I tend to expect perfection. That is why I am surprised at the gap. I am paying for a + $500 shoe.

Thanks K. I just put my order in for the Cigar. I really wanted both, but with the full pre-pay upfront I could really only justify getting one of them. They did let me order size 12B, so anyone with an odd size like me is in luck with Alden NYC pre-orders. I was given the same 4-6 month timeline like others have posted.

At the time I contacted them, they only had one spot left available for both the Cigar and Whiskey LWB, and I just grabbed the Cigar. For anyone on the fence, put your order in for the Whiskey before that last one is gone!
