I have an 11.5 headed my way, and he said they have the following sizes left:


8

8.5 x2

9 x2

11

12


Barrie last, speed hooks (obviously) and oiled leather sole (not sure if it's waterlock or flex welt).

Make that 1 in 8.5. Just called and ordered mine. Glad i decided to take a look on here before bed.  Had the picture saved in my (shoes to get if they pop up folder) thanks.

I just ordered a natural CXL belt from rancourt and co also which seems like will go well.

I'm glad you checked also.

Congrats! So great to know they have more in stock. Here's the sole on them...pretty sure this is single water lock (the model is 40204h for the expert decoders among us):

Gentlemen, wow there was a lot of talking today!

DV, love them monks. Patina'ed Whiskey is amazing.

Don, cool NSTs. I have that pair on the Plaza in production right now.

Mac, those are the King of the Wingtip Boots. Those are stunners.

GoSh, those are some sweet looking nst boots.

Mine is #8 Cap toe boots with commando sole. Mostly complimented by gentlemen in their 40~50's in commuting train lol.

I have only worn my Color #2 LWBs once and only around the office, but pretty much everyone asked me about them. The Dorothy shoes definitely stand out.

Other than that, I have gotten a lot of comments on my Cigar LWBs. Some like the color, others like the wooden sides on them... :-)

Tassel loafers, created in the 50's.

Interesting, that's the first reference I have seen to Alden themselves actually claiming having invented the Tassel.

Just got word that LS ultimate indys have arrived.  This run was estimated for September delivery, IIRC.  Good timing for fall & winter.  

 

Now to get them 5000 miles back to Massachusetts....

Is there any retailer doing a Whiskey LWB run?  Madison?  SF?

Madison just did one not too long ago, they did runs of Cigar and Whiskey at the same time. Probably worth it to check with them again and see how soon they are planning on doing another one.
