But I love the Plaza.

Tom,

 

Thanks for your professionalism and honesty. LS is a pleasure to deal with. Now I just need my Tan Suede Longwings from last January pre-order to arrive smile.gif

Man, I wish I wasn't so broke right now. There's some great stuff there at ridiculously low prices.

The real question is what is Alden's total cost of goods sold?  How much are they making a pair?

The other thing people don't consider is all what makes a company expense from salary to taxes. Not just the cost of the actual making of the shoe.

I ain't mad at ya, Tom. I'm always treated like a king by you and your peeps (even though I have weird sizing issues). No complaints, and there is definitely something to be said for being treated like a valued customer.

Speaking of LS, hop on those loden green plaza last loafers that were posted, gents. Beautiful, IMO!

Natural cxl plain toe boots today

Loden green loafers are awesome - I wish I could get comfortable on the plaza last. They are cool.
post #40874 of 94212
damn my smaller feet.
post #40875 of 94212

My first post.  The posting was delayed a bit and hence burried a few pages back in this thread.   Anybody have feedback on the shoe bad situation.
