Does your SWB mean shortwing blucher (not offered), or shortwing Balmoral (offered on Tremont).

While not a very commn model Alden makes a Whiskey SWB (Blucher) on the Aberdeen last ,There's one retailer that has them on order, not a great pic. but to give you an idea:

shoetree, of the three whiskey option you listed, I think the longwing blucher is the best. I've owned both the longwing and plain toe in whiskey, and though I sold the plain toes, I've still got the longwings. I've seen the whiskey shortwing in person and I think it looks weird. #8 is a much better color for that model. In fact, the first Aldens I ever bought were the 974, and they're still going strong:

True - but not offered regularly - and, as far as I know, not offered currently. Who is the retailer that has them on order?

The shortwing bal seems to be offered every couple of years and doesn't seem terribly difficult to get.

The earlier post about the Color 4 caps reminded me of my first two posts in this thread. LOL the innocence.

Can someone go talk to this guy and pitch him our wish list...
1. #8 grain shell lwb. They've done it before, #8 is easy for them to get and work with.
2. freaking double monk
3. Fill in the blank folks...
I'd crash the double monk party with you, DV.

Odd...I received a call from DC today on the cigar cap toe boot, but it wasn't related to the incoming order. One of the few 10Ds from the run earlier this year was returned. I'll check them out, but would almost rather see what the new batch looks like.

The way it works is, the more people who call with interest for that boot, the better the chances they will submit the boot for production again.

So anyone with an interest in that boot, I encourage you to give LS a call so we can get this made again! Thanks!

Yea, I've been on that list for what feels like a year....
