Yes, thank you. I saw the NYT article. I may be interested in a pair of #8 975s. Can anyone proxy?

Cigar Chukka today..

post #26478 of 79114

This is a cross-post from the Alden MTO thread - we need eight more people who would be willing to participate -

 

 

 

In 2009, Tassels offered the Alden Combat Boot in Black Smooth Calf -

http://www.tassels.com.hk/en/made_to_order_details.php?id=8

I am looking for 11 other people who would be interested in approaching Epaulet about a special order of these shoes.

- Trubalance Last (the only change I am proposing - originally came on Barrie last)


- Premium Extra Smooth Calf in Black


- Flat waxed shoes lace

- matching eyelets


- Rugged Commando Sole

- Pull tab

Gentlemen, nobody is offering this type of shoe - let's get this done now, so that it will be available by the fall.
Who's in?

 

Edit: I realize that what we are proposing is also similar to the LS Lady Calf Jumpers (offered more than a year and a half ago); the difference, though, is that we are adding the commando sole - here are pics of the LS Lady Calf Jumpers, to give you a better idea of what we are proposing:

If interested, please let us know -

Very nice. I've been thinking Cigar, and maybe it will be a chukka.

With the exception of the frans Boone ravello Indy on the plaza last, have there been any other offerings of a ravello Indy? I'd be interested in a ravello Indy on a wider last, plaza doesn't work very well for me

Anyone know where I can find Alden shoe trees under $30?
Thanks.

Has this happened with anyone else's Indy's (or any other boots for that matter)?

Basically the upper is separating from the welt/sole of the shoe (the white you see is I assume the thread holding them all together.  Just noticed this today, with nothing notable happening to cause this.  Really starting to lose faith in the quality of Aldens as these boots are less than a year old.  I get it the demand makes the QC go down or something like that but this should not be happening on a $450 dollar boot regardless of the reasoning.  I mean hell this doesn't even happen on $100 boots.  I'm starting to really question whether Aldens are worth the trouble.  So far I've had speed hooks tearing out of $650 Cordovan boots, ugly wrinkles on $460 chukkas, and now this.  Pretty disappointing.

 

Anyone else have experience with this?  Is it an easy fix at a shoe repair?  

 

Thanks in advance.

What's up with Brooks Brothers and Alden? The flagship store here in Tokyo said they only have one pair (in any style) left, and they have no idea if or when they'll be getting more. The Brooks corner in a big department store here (Isetan) told me the Brooks / Alden contract may not be renewed. Could that be true? Maybe only regarding Brooks in Japan? I was really surprised to hear that, but sure enough all the BB stores here have only Peal or AE now...

To be honest, I have 6 pairs of Aldens currently, and have never had a qualitly issue when it came to the construction of the shoe. Knock on wood. Only minor shade variations with the shell color.
