post #80131 of 122416

I think we should all go in on ordering lunch for Kathy for a day or two.  She was awesome on the phone today (ridiculously patient with my questions and got me added to the list) and probably got absolutely inundated with calls due to this thread today.  Sounds like everyone else had the same great experience with her.

That's a fantastic idea. In.

I used to own color 8 Indys, but I found the shiny shell clashed too much with the really casual nature and shape of the boot. They were on commando and I didn't feel they worked.

Really? I love mine! Dresses up an outfit perfectly for exactly the reason you stated. Also, don't forget to play with diff color laces.

For a second color 8, not sure it I should get a PCT or a wingtip. I already have a burgundy cordovan AE Dalton boot (wingtip), so if I go Alden Color 8 Wingtip, I'd sell the AE. But the Dalton is a gorgeous red color vs the eggplant color 8 of Alden...nice variety.

Decisions!

Would love to pitch in. Maybe a card that says "From the gents at Style forum. Thanks for handling our requests!"

Or something like that. Totally down. Let us know how we can organize this. Should we look up restaurants in the area?

Really sweet idea, man.

Awesome, that message sounds like a good idea.  She should know we appreciate the help here on the forum, especially since we probably took up a good day and a half worth of her being on the phone, haha.  Didn't think too hard about the logistics, but I'm down to make it work however. 

 

Anyone ever done anything like this before?  I guess we can just look up something nearby and get it delivered?

Tonight I shall surely dream of those Cigar Cts!

Reviewing the recent pre orders for LWB in Cigar and Whiskey from Alden on Madison, and Cigar CT boot from Alden DC...all of them arrived on time and no big issues in quality. I would love to see a run of cap toes in whiskey on commandos a proposed next group order with Kathy. 2nd choice would be Ravello. I think these are doable within a 12 month window. We shall see.

See Ya,
Steve

Ravello naval boot (PCT) on commando would also be sweet (no speed hooks).

I would definitely be down for either. I love the commando sole.

Got a call Tuesday morning about the Cigar CT boot from Alden DC.  I put myself on the list a little over a year ago.  I'm one of "those bastards" that got it in 8D.  :cool::D Didn't expect to receive them so fast, especially after receiving my Whiskey LWB from Alden NY about two weeks ago. 

 

And to echo those who have already mentioned this, Alden DC should be calling people on the list for the whole week.  When they left a message on my phone today, they said they'll hold it for me for about a week before they offer it to someone else.

 

Hope that helps!

She did say that they've been consistently getting in non-8 and black leathers more recently. She mentioned submitting an order for either a ravello or whiskey indie boot on grant (but I think maybe she meant plaza??), but that's still a ways off. I just had to ask about the possibility of #4 in anything -- the answer was as expected. No dice.

I know they have some open lists for other models, but I didn't want to tie her up any more than I already had. It was clear they were trying to get through the cigar list as quickly as possible. I plan to visit or call back in a few weeks to see what other runs they are planning. I'll report back with anything interesting.

I am with you today, Tif.

This rain calls for wet weather gear.

Natty CXL for me.

Since I sold my home and am living with my parents for a few week before making the drive to TX, I'm a pretty short drive to Alden DC. Normally I would pop in there to see what they have left, but being on the buying hiatus and all. The cigar color on those is really tempting although shell boots aren't something I need at the moment.
