My apologies - you wrote LHS but my mind went to LWB. I'm not familiar with Van last sizing and that's part of why I don't own a pair of LHS.

Does using this code subject the order to the "Sale item" return policy?  Considering it is a promo code, and not a sale on the item itself, I wanted to see if anyone had any idea.

Used the 25% off NRO deal on a shell belt. Got the "your item is at least 16 weeks from shipment" email this morning. Don't think the price can be beat, so seems like a good idea to wait it out.

I'm not sure NRO even intends to get all these Aldens. 16 weeks later they'll probably cancel the order or something. Seems a bit shady to me. They could go out of business during that time and walk away with your money.  Even most credit cards only give you 60 days to do a claim...

I made an inquiry with them to confirm but I believe my card will not be charged until the order is fulfilled.

Has this been 100% confirmed? I too am contemplating placing an order for among other things a shell belt.

i'm also on board with you guys about the unionmade boot, i definitely prefer the leather sole on the shoemart boots over the unionmade version.
if i wear a 9.5D in the barrie (cordovan WTB) , does that mean i should get a 9.5D on the modified last (CXL)?

I know this is a month old, but mexicutioner, what did you decide to go with?
