You can't.

 

DC and Alden Madison have done Whiskey Indys in the past, so they are the best place to keep an eye on for future runs.

 

In terms of instant gratification, that is almost impossible.  You also might look into Viberg as another option.

 

are you in E&P? (your handle?)

 

Edit: You could look into Rancourt and Oak Street Bootmaker too, but they aren't as substantial feeling. The construction is more like a shoe that goes above your ankle.

These shoes are not vegan

I'd probably look more toward C&J or Carmina really.

Viberg's Brandy (hair shade darker than Whiskey) Service boot allocation sold out in 45 seconds. They have one more shell makeup coming later this year, but it's been speculated to be a darker color.

I wouldn't count on Carmina either.

At this moment, all our Carmina Cordovan orders are delayed, especially the Burgundy Cordovan. This has already effected the Frankenstitch Jumper, half of the batch will be delivered soon and the rest after summer. Also, any MTO placed for Cordovan will be subject to heavy delays instead of the usual 2-3 months delivery time. The same goes for Bonafé and all other makers I've spoken to; expect heavy delays and unconfirmed delivery dates.

We do have some Cordovan shoes in stock though, but it's mostly Cognac Cordovan.

I can't believe I waited so long to get a pair of these snuff suede LHS. Just picked them up at Alden DC on Saturday. Soooo comfy.

And the LHS family (#8 lined, #8 BB unlined, Cigar, Chromexcel, snuff):

Maybe Carmina can't source any shell because Alden is using it all up for all their confirmed Ravello and Whiskey orders that are coming up soon. :P

I've been hunting for the BB Unlined LHS (Color 8) with no luck--called stores all over.

 

In reality, is there a big long-term difference between this model and the lined LHS?

 

Should I just give up on the BB and go for the stock model?

post #85210 of 122416

alden or ferragamo??

Very nice. Could you give some more info on the snuff plain toe boot? Who makes it, and last details, etc.? Thanks

I talked to a BB rep about this a couple months back. According to him, BB buys these in large lots every year or two. He said at the time there were no indications in the BB system a reorder was imminent. I would suggest giving them a call.

If you are even considering the MTO route for fulfilling your Whiskey Boot urge, I would endorse working with Crockett & Jones. They have some Whiskey Shell in hand. We currently have a Whiskey "Harlech" Cap Toe Boot Group MTO in production. I also personally submitted a Whiskey Shell "Lowdnes" Double Monk-Strap shoe at the same time. For more information check out the GMTO thread Hoit starred. If you need the contact info for MTO rep, let me know.

I hate pointing people away from Alden, but for certain designs, like a double monk, you have to go elsewhere.

That was an Alden for Leather Soul special makeup I got in August 2012. It is on the Barrie last with a single Flex sole. Great boot, and very comfortable.
