post #32431 of 87462

So what's the deal with mahogany?  I know that it isn't produced lately, at least for Alden, but I'm sure Horween still has the recipe and could whip some up if they wanted. I wonder if they'd be willing to do it if a retailed asked for it in a large enough quantity.  Maybe its too close to cigar so they sort of just picked one or the other?  Same with number #4 perhaps?  Too close to Ravello, so they consolidated it in order to use that capacity to produce larger quantities of fewer colors?

 

(I realize that #4 is still produced occasionally, before anyone feels the need to point that out.)

 

Just curious if there was any explanation or theory behind the extinction of mahogany ever discussed.

 

Also, how come this thread isn't as busy as it was up until recently?  I guess people aren't wearing their Aldens as much due to the season?  Wearing flip flops so they don't have them on to snap and post photos?

 

I have a boring job, and this thread used to bring me the entertainment necessary to get me through the day.

...or maybe someone started a group called "Aldens Anonymous"?

Please don't accuse me of wearing flip flops.

PSA:  Someone has listed these on eBay in size 9D on the Barrie last.  They were a limited run of only 50 pairs for J.Crew.  Obviously, they've since sold out.  I have a pair myself and love them.  Somebody pick these up!

Cigar PTB for your entertainment.  Please excuse the iPhone pic.

I've set my eyes on this 'cordovan perforated captoe' model from BB:

http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCatProductPage.process?Merchant_Id=1&Section_Id=225&Product_Id=1075654&Parent_Id=522&default_color=BLACK&sort_by=&sectioncolor=&sectionsize=#null

Trouble is, some customers on BB's site have written that this runs wider than usual and one states this is more narrow. In addition, Alden does not list a last named 'snap' which one user lists.

Someone must know: which last is this pair made on and how do they fit?

Not going to help you, but I have read that Alden does have a last that may only be used for Brooks Brothers, but I thought it was called the M51 last or something to that effect.

Yeah M58 last is used on the BB PTB Alden, nice last, for me, fits like Barrie.. Problem is, each different BB Alden model is on a different last.

Thanks for the correction. I knew I was in the right region for the number, but didn't remember the exact number.

NRO has now delayed my order multiple times, made no effort to contact me regarding any of the delays, and has now been sitting on my boots for almost a week.

I cannot recommend anybody purchase from them. They make no effort to comply with any of their advertised policies regarding customer service and I've now taken the issue to the BBB.
