post #99496 of 122416
I am waiting on TSM Ravello NST boots. Those would be my 6th pair of Alden boots and 8th pair of Aldens. I'm not ruling out other purchases but, absent a really great new makeup or the appearance of a grail like item, I'm not coveting anything else Alden in 2015. Of course, this could change by next week. I'm starting to slow down on shell (love it but have enough) and boots (love them and can never have enough but trying to be practical) and since shell/boots are what mainly draw me to Alden, I need to lay off for a bit. Looking more to Bonafe, Vass, Carmina, C&J for now.

  • Harrison LTD CXL Chukkas

  • DC Ravello LWB
  • LS Snuff SW Boot

Stock want list:

Plus, of course, other things unimagined that strike my fancy along the way (like the Chamois Captoe boot I just missed.  If anyone is unhappy with their 9D, please PM me!)

Other goals for 2015: maintain heresy and remain uninterested in all things NST, PT, shell indy, and bal.  

I'm also not a huge fan of NST and bal.

My ravello and color 8 PTBs would be a few of the last Alden models I would part with, and I have a reasonably sized Alden collection.

And Mandingo has a reasonably sized penis...

Alpina, for your C snuff. Call any store my friend and have them do and ask them to do an "add to run" for the C width. I have done this several times this past year. Usually takes 4-6 months and they will appear magically. I had Kathy do this for me for a 975 and 9751 and am having her make me a 2211 right now and SF is making me a Perf Tip Balmoral in Black.

Sorry guys, I will try and put together a list of my 2014 acquisitions. May take me a little research. I will also put together my want list. Not a ton left on it fortunately.

Madison Alden offered it up as a preorder back in the summer IIRC. small run, maybe 12 pairs I think. Supposed to arrive next fall I believe.

post #99508 of 122416

I think 2014 was a dry year for me sadly.. Can't recall any acquisitions..

 

2015 has the whiskey WT boot on preorder, along with a handful of preorders with DC that I believe I'm too deep on the list for any possibility (cigar lwb, captoe boot ravello).

 

Not much else I think I'm after at this point. I'd like cigar LWB, newer shade ravello LWB, and maybe a standard captoe #8 boot. Beyond that, I'm looking at picking up a viberg natty cxl boot and a trickers teak boot that was a reddit MTO

Yes, I think it is, I got narrow feet and the aberdeen was Ok
