Does anyone else think that a navy suede Indy with red brick sole would look killer?

Very nice. I recently acquired the Cigar Shell NSTs on the Barrie Last from Shoemart. I have worn them but once; however, they are scheduled for a second voyage tomorrow.

Don't know if a LWB in Color 4 has been done, but I was lucky enough to stumble upon a NOS Vintage Hanover Color 4 ptb a few months back. It's a beautiful shoe and fits nicely in the color spectrum between my ravello ptb's and cigar chukkas. I inquired of the Color 4 wingtip boot earlier this week when phoning Shoemart - I was told an order was placed 5/26/12 and they have no idea when, if ever, another order will be placed?

Sounds like a good option to go with my work uniform

If I want sleek, I can reach for my EGs, if it's comfort for the day, the Modified (and Barrie as a close second) are worn.

 

The Plaza last doesn't do much for me.  The Leydon last is pretty sleek if that's the look you want.  I like the Barrie for overall shape and comfort.  I have no experience with the Modified or Grant last  .  .  .  yet.

I was told "it could be a few months" when I called but I got the sense the customer service lady was not sure herself.

Back in march when I put my name down, I remember being told that the Captoe boots were 4-5 weeks away and the #4 wingtip boot was 4-5 months away.
So....the #4 wingtip boot arrived in May....so I called about the #4 captoe when the #4 wingtip came in. I was told that Alden told shoemart that the captoe boot was in production and would be ready soon.
I called again this week and was told the order was just sent to Alden on May 26th, so figure 8-12 months from there.
I honestly dont know what or who to believe....I need to call back and speak to Ed.

Please report back what Ed says after you call. 8-12 months is a long time to wait, but it is a very unique makeup. I don't mind a long wait but if I know the rough timeline I can better pace myself.

8-12 months isn't terrible. Custom knives are worse--I've been waiting since October 2010 for one, and it could be another year or two for all I know. I know guys that have been waiting over four years.

Why buy custom knives?
post #30327 of 86705

I'm on a five year waiting list at Randall Made.  So 18 months for Aldens ain't so bad.

The same reason folks buy expensive shoes and watches. People collect them.

Just as an FYI and for confirmation, new makeups are taking 18 months from order placement till delivery. Previously made models can take a few months shorter. This does not include #4, whiskey, ravello, and cigar, which depends on availability and order queue.
