I didn't know Shoemart did pre-orders. Can you share details?

I wanted a pair of black shells. I settled on the LWB's. All sizes were available, which threw up a flag for me that it was most likely unavailable now. I called and verify that indeed the shipment is not in yet. I went ahead and place the order for my size. The email said that the shipment is expected in June.

I called Joe today, one of the owners to ask about the whiskey's. He said he has 2 styles on order, LWB's and PTB's. I told him I want to preorder the PTB's, he took down my info. He warned me due to the rarity of lighter shells, it can take as long as a year. I acknowledged the fact and continued on with preordering.

Shoemart does not charge until shoes are shipped.

You just have to know how the Shoemart site works. If the shoe is a "standard" Alden model, they list all sizes all the time. If the shoe is a "special edition", the site lists what is currently available.

Does anyone know where I can find some Cigar Indys in 12.5D? Epaulet doesn't have anything bigger than a 12 listed for any shoe and Shoe Mart doesn't have any Cigar Indys listed at all.

Maybe I should call Leffot or J Gilbert?

Sorry for the somewhat overcast lighting, but that's what passes for sunlight this time of year, and it's brighter than it has been for awhile, actually.

From left to right: BB black, Alden cigar, BB #8, Alden mahogany, Alden ravello, BB whiskey.


And a closer shot:

outstanding collection!

brush vigorously for five minutes and you will be very pleased

Very nice and I am thinking of picking a pair up but I have to say I do not like the lack of versatility and room for taste in growth. Now money may not be a factor but you are missing out on some great patina if you got something like a PTB. Still, a lot of nice shoes.

LOL! Mac used to get panned about his socks on here all the time. Now people are asking where to get them. Nice shoes and socks Mac.

Or are the lengths of all 3 the same? Only difference in width?

Please let me know if you have had experience iwth Trubalance sizes and know the answer.

I recommend calling the San Fran Alden store. They were very helpful with questions like this that I've had in the past.
