^ Rogue Territory RK ISC Canvas Trousers.  I agree with the lacking versatility of whiskey.  I'm waiting on some Cigar Indys from J.Gilbert, definitely looking forward to those.

Personally, I'd disagree on the whiskey longwings - I don't have any whiskey myself, but I find I wear my lighter leathers far more often than my darks.

Would kill for a pair of ravello or whiskey in my rotation... drool.gif

If I may steer the discussion back toward sales practices for a moment, is it normal practice to charge a customer's credit card for an item that the vendor knows is not in stock? I've got this scenario now with two companies (one of whom is a forum sponsor). They each charged my card at time of sale then proceeded to miss anticipated delivery dates without notifying me. With both companies, I've had to reach out to learn of the delays.

Am I off base to be frustrated with this? Is this a normal practice and I'm just being high maintenance, or am I right to think a company should send notice of delays exceeding a week (or three)?

Typically, a card is charged at the point of shipment.  This is standard practice for any large retailer or public corporation with some oversight on these types of practices.

 

However, with these small independent retailers we deal with, it's really up to them.  Plus, their system is probably set up to be as simple as possible.

Just a PSA, Alden of Carmel has a decent selection of "irregulars", including some cigar longwings. As many can attest, myself included, Adam's irregulars can often be better quality than many retailers first quality offerings.

Limited sizes, mostly 8/8.5

Dunno about that hack-job pair of Ravellos, but I wouldn't mind that drawer at home.

I love wearing lighter brown leather and wear it much more than black, but there is a real distinction between brown leather and whiskey that can't be captured in a photo. I love my whiskey indy, but it isn't even close to the versatility that you will get from color 8. If he had those pants against a color 8 boot, that look would blow away this combo.

There is a term for this.  It's called "bill and hold".  Many businesses do this to recognize revenue sooner than they probably should under the accruals accounting methodology.  It's something to look for when evaluating companies' financial statements.  Typically analysts will make the adjustments necessary to have the balance sheet and income statement more reflective of actuality.

 

I think its understandable that you are frustrated.  It would tick me off too.
