Fair enough, I have that too!
Well, I joined in the complaining about the price of non-shell Aldens earlier today but have to eat my words as that did not stop me from snagging the last pre-order slot in my size for the Leffot CXL PT Boot. Very much looking forward to these and plan to abuse the *#$(@ out of them. I guess when you keep compulsively checking the same item over and over again, it is just easier to buy it and get on with life.
I personally love CXL boots, wrinkles and all. Although the amount of creasing and wrinkling varies. My Vibergs hardly wrinkle at all. I have one pair of Alden NatCXL that has almost no wrinkling and another Alden pair that is a wrinkle machine.
Very nice --- I had my eye on those but couldn't justify another wingtip boot. The reverse chamois (and those boots) look awesome though.
