Not sure how to feel about alden dc's predicament.

I feel for them, but as Kathy said, it's a good problem to have.

It looks like they went with a lighter edge trim this round, last years was a dark edge trim. They look very nice!

Sorry, not sure how I quoted you there. Yes, they made 4 pairs in most common sizes. Anyway, I value this model over others because cigar and commando sole works great for me with the coming rain. Pretty much can't wear other shells since most have leather soles.

I wear a 9D on the Hampton last and an 8.5 on the trubalance last

I'm a 6E in Barrie, Trubalance, and Van. 6.5D in Grant and Hampton. Hope that helps.

Congrates to everyone who got a pair of the Cigar CT boot, looks amazing!

Thats, those look great to me! Thanks for sharing them, congrats to all who are going to be getting pairs during this run.

BTW, photography is all about lighting, I am very fortunate to have a room with absolutely perfect lighting for this! :-)

Wait, so if you haven't received a call, you're out of luck? Or are they still calling people on the list?

For me, the funny thing is just the growth in demand. These boots were the first cordovan boots I bought, i guess three years ago. I just called up and bought my size. Impossible to do now.

Very exciting day on the thread
Leffot E boats just delivered my first and I now realize I should have done it sooner

I have seen JCrew Revello boots at the outlet 50 $ off. Never again

Anybody know if Alden DC rolls over the Cigar CT list for those who didn't get a pair? I was #2 on the list for my size and they originally told me they only ordered one pair, so I'm assuming I'll miss out on this round. I'd love to stay on the list in case they do another run in the future.

One last round of pictures.  Comparison of #8 AF53 and Cigar Cap Toe Boots.  I chose the AF53's because they're the closest boot I have to the "traditional" eggplant color for the color comparison.  Sorry for all the pictures - I'm just psyched about these boots.  Dumb luck that I stumbled into them.
