Why don't you call and ask for a small discount. Doesn't hurt to ask. I find returning/exchanging things to be such a hassle. I know that they will become like that after the first wear so it doesn't really matter, but it's the principle that they have been creased and scuffed up and sold to you for full retail.

are these supposed to be new shoes? shoes are overly creased, which means the former owner must have done a lot of walking on the carpet before realizing that the shoes don't fit

Those have been pre-mac methoded.  I could probably live with those, however.

Oddly, the boots arrived very dull and it took me some work to get them glowing.

Compares to Ravello Chukka and Whiskey PTB, this new Whiskey's shade is in between both.

Thanks, but I thought this was a one-off circumstance:  an Alden specialty retailer whose name escapes me (Blackbird?) went under, and the stock of this shoe that remained when the doors closed ended up at Alden DC.  My understanding is that Alden DC was merely selling off this remaining stock, and not continually stocking the shoe after that remaining stock was gone.  I thought I heard this from Kathy at Alden DC.  Am I wrong about this and this shoe is part of Alden DC's normal stock?

@sazon Thank you fine sir for posting about those chocolate suede tankers a few days back, I was able to hold my size for a delivery sometime next year.

Second photo in the shade.

Love me some PTBs.

This is correct, and the retailer was indeed Blackbird. I own a pair and they are splendid. Esp with brass eyelets, and the juxtaposition of textures.

That Blackbird "Hayburner" model is bound to be reproduced by some retailer. They are awesome, but not for everyone. Cheers.

Got an unexpected call today from Kathy with an offer for one of my fav shoes, Whiskey PTB.

Anyone have pics from this recent DC run so I can see the shade? I'm scared of them being very ravelloish. Hoping to sell a few things to help fund them but we shall see, I might have to pass on them for now.
