In all seriousness, you took something I said about a pair of red shoes and used it to refer to me in the expletive. That's uncool.

All eyelets.

I thought most of the retailers appreciated it when we didn't talk about the MTO's here on the boards?

Ive never actually been told not to disclose a makeup on the forum. Most people laugh when I tell them, I found out about XXX shoe/boot on Styleforum.

 

And in most cases by the time the forum acknowleges it the list has 40 people on it already or the preorders are all sold out. I have better luck calling around or watching instagram than I do on here.

 

Just like Aldens age old marketing techniques (which is essentially doing nothing) phone calls still remain the #1 method.

they did none of this for the NST. Just charged the card, shipped it and sent an email confirmation


This is what TSM told me would happen when the ravello wingtip boot comes in.

I thought they were both captoe's with the difference being one was leather soles and the other commando.  I got on both because of my strong preference for ravello and figured I'd decide which one to keep after I got them.  Quite honestly, if one is captoe and one is wingtip, I may just keep them both.  That would be a nice problem to have, especially if the shade is close to the recently posted TSM NST's. 

Alden DC is doing the Ravello Cap Toe Boot on the Grant last with a Commando Sole and Speedhooks.

Leffot is doing a Ravello Cap Toe Boot on the Grant last with a Double Waterlock Sole and All Eyelets.

There is a lot of debate on the issue. Most retailers do not mind it when they have shoes to move and they get a shout out, but they do hate it when people post completely incorrect information online and they get calls about a Whiskey and Color #4 Wingtip boot that they don't actually have. They are all in business to sell shoes. With that said, I typically try and protect the retailers from 300 phone calls if I know they only have two pairs left and only in specific sizes.

P.S. They aren't MTOs, but rather custom or special makeups for the specific retailer.

dude, I feel for you. I know you've been waiting on those Ravello WT boots since the Epaulet Brixton fiasco of 2010!

Let SF know you're interested. They will let you know when it arrives. I believe end of year.

I commend you on this. Its not easy to do but it feels good once done. Sometimes, for me, its not the love of the shoe or an emotional attachment--its just that the shoe was so hard to get !

I sold some highly coveted models over the last year, as I was just not wearing them. This included 3 pair of Ravello, 2 pair of Cigar and 2 pair of whiskey. I'm very heavy on the #8 these days, as well some suede and Calf. These days, I just want to wear what fits my flat dogs dogs well and whats most versatile.

On that note, I've been toying with the idea of selling my viberg x 316 black stealth boots and replacing them with Black Indys....

It seems there is no shortage of Ravello lately. When there is money to be made, Alden fulfills orders, eventually!

Yeah it will be a long time coming for me (and a bunch of others here on SF that were originally on that Ravello Brixton order) when TSM finally delivers this boot!

This is correct. They bill only upon shipment at tsm.
