So they called you, said they'd investigate, and then they didn't call you back with their recommendation, and instead just did what they thought would fix the issue and shipped the shoes back?

In a can, that's about what happened.

Thanks, Mac! Most of the purchases are clearly inspired by your Aldens!

Alden monk in any of the 'rare' colors you mention would be incredible.

I will say that I had success with Alden SF... Got on the list for Ravello and Whiskey LWB middle of July expecting a year long wait at least, was offered a pair of Whiskey yesterday... Now have to convince the wife that a pair of $750.00 shoes represent a good investment... Rare shell is not a depreciating asset right.

Yes, I have had a similar experience. I hate to say it, but I was actually only on the Cigar and Ravello Chukka lists for maybe 3 weeks when they came in. I was expecting a 2 year wait...

This will be my third pair of Alden's

1. Dark Brown LWB with antique edge from TSM

2. CXL NST on Commando from Loafers and Laces

3. Whiskey LWB from Alden SF

Will consider the Ravello when it comes available. Don't think I ever thought I would spent this much on shoes but I am supporting American business, so all is good in the world...

Yeah. Join the club. I wouldn't have ever imagined I would have ever bought a shoe this expensive either. And then you get the shell bug...

I remember wringing my hands over how expensive the Indy boot was when I first bought it about five years ago. I was able to use a J. Crew 40% off coupon (because every once in a while, at least back then, their coupons worked on Aldens) and I think my total was $330 or so.

Now I'm buying two separate Ravello SW boots just because one is leather-soled and one is commando...
