Anyone with any ideas of where I could find a PTB in color 8, ravello, or whiskey that has a slightly lighter color edge dressing? Maybe something similar to Leffot pre-order?
I guess ravello and whiskey are pretty much impossible to find at this point. I'm a true 10.5 D (10 in barrie).
Get in line my 10D brotha (barrie)!post #72365 of 1224161/31/14 at 10:53amBroke out the alpine grain longwings with the red brick sole for casual Friday today. I don't think I've ever worn them in the fall or winter when the sidewalks and roads are slick. I was surprised at how slippery these things are out there!
Oh well. Just another reason to stay inside the office today.
In other news, according to my wife and FedEx the LHS that I ordered from TSM on Wednesday afternoon have already arrive at my house. That was much faster than I was expecting.post #72366 of 1224161/31/14 at 11:27ampost #72367 of 1224161/31/14 at 11:33am
As one more update on the Need Supply x Alden Union Hill Indy, it looks as though there is a chance that they may not make it to production at all. Per Need Supply, "Unfortunately we are not sure if we will ever be releasing this boot. Alden shipped them to us with major defects and all of the product was sent back."
So, yes, it is a bummer, as it looked to be a great boot. With that said, Need Supply wins my Shop of the Year award for making Alden culpable for its lapse in quality, even if it would have been a good selling boot. I don't want to be a Moses leading a campaign against Alden, but there does need to be this sort of push back (from both shops and customers) for Alden to acknowledge that they have had a quality problem lately, and that they need to take real steps to correct it.
TL;DR: Need Supply is awesome, and TSM may have a boat load of tan Indys hitting their 2nds list the next time around.post #72368 of 1224161/31/14 at 11:34ampost #72369 of 1224161/31/14 at 11:35ampost #72370 of 1224161/31/14 at 11:43ampost #72371 of 1224161/31/14 at 11:58amQuote:Originally Posted by tifosi

i just had a double take. very nice. oh man, you brushed? see thats when I knew those werent my hooves. when you brush your boots, you expose them to the air elements and air elements make shell boots sad. keeping them covered in venetian ensures they look great (for when you finally decide to brush)post #72372 of 1224161/31/14 at 12:29pmQuote:
