I secretly hope that I will reach that inflection point where:

 

(a) my lack of real need for more Aldens, given my pretty comprehensive collection, intersects with

(b) my reduced demand for Aldens given their frequent, material price escalations

Mike,

 

I think their list is quite "subjective" I have supposedly been on the list for the Whiskey Indy and Ravello boot for a couple of years yet I have not heard from anyone. I am not going to call and bother them as I am honestly not that interested but I have a feeling that the 8D in each makeup will be going to someone with less time on the list than me. Perhaps I am mistaken but we will see if I hear anything...

For those with more experience with boots than I, is this preferable to leather sole and all eyelets?

I almost hate to say this, but next time you hear that a retailer is taking orders or getting allowances for the exotics, you're better off not blasting it to this entire site.  Time and time again, I have been told by retailers, almost every time I succeed in obtaining an exotic make up, that "I would really appreciate it if you would keep this order to yourself and not advertise it to the Alden community (in so many words)."  Of course, I'm guilty of having made PSAs myself, and by no means and I providing advice on this matter, but it's something to consider.  To each his own, of course, and I respect all opinions (except stupid ones).

Personal preference.

For me, all eyelets and leather soles are "dressier". But if I want a boot to be a boot, I like the commando sole for wet/inclement conditions and speed hooks for ease.

I hear ya, it's the current state of the shell game. Was really just chuckling at my own idiocy and wondering what others' experiences were.

Leather sole would be personal preference in keeping with the more refined look of the WT boots. Speed hooks are only an issue if you crop your hems high/narrow, which can cause the hem to catch, though I suspect there are purists out there that do prefer eyelets for consistency in overall design.

When you call in or come in, they will check to see whether you're on the list. If you're not on the list, they will not help you order for the time being.

The PSA only helps people who are on their wait list.

Oh...right...I'm logged into styleforum at the moment. Got it. Thanks, Buda.
