I've had my luck calling/emailing the various sources. Got some pretty awesome stuff coming my way this month.

Obsessive site checking and reading this thread...although by the time some makeups appear in this thread, they're already gone.

This thread is a real good tool.

I want to check in with you on our Obscura preorder and keep you updated. Last week, I personally visited Alden to say hello and talk about some new projects.
I received an update on Ravello. Long story short, there is not going to be any forthcoming leather any time soon. All of the specialty colors are rare these days. Whiskey is coming every now and then. Cigar had a decent delivery a while ago but nothing recently, and Ravello is totally gone. There's no inventory at Alden, none at Horween, and no delivery date scheduled for it. And there's a pile of backorders against whatever skins they do have come in.
As you may know, we ran a Brixton boot Ravello preorder almost 18 months ago. I still don't have them, and I have no date that I can tell anyone for them.

Got this post from the MTO Thread. It appears Ravello shoes/boots may not be coming around for a while.

Hold on to your Ravello shoes if you got them! Sadly, this means my Day Trippers will probably not be done until 2013 or later... baldy[1].gif

That's disappointing. I was at the Alden store on Madison the other day and the SA there told me the same thing. My day trippers will probably not be coming in this year ffffuuuu.gif

just watched the rum diaries, johnny depp might be wearing a pair of alden sand suede chukkas

601

481

233

regardless if they are aldens or not, i like how he's driving a motorcycle and strolling down dirt roads in suede chukkas. busted up suedes are a great look, although i suppose it's easier said than done being so cavalier in $500 shoes (i guess unless you are a movie star)

Leffot was pretty confident about their September 2012 delivery date last I spoke to them regarding my pre-order about a month ago when I got my tassel loafers from them. I have a feeling their order went through before all of this hoopla. But than again I could also be in complete and utter denial that I won't be getting those beauties for another year, my god the agony.
