In that case, looks like there is a pair of Whiskey LHS 9D available at Alden SF. Someone better snatch them up before the Rare Shell Alden Apocalypse.
DocAlden, you know you can't resist. you don't have anything in Whiskey yet, and from the sound of it, might not be another chance to anytime soon.
My dear Bakes,
You know full well I've been trigger happy these last few weeks and that I'm working on it. My wife is stressed about this house we're closing on next month. All I can do between patients is check this thread and quickly scan Epaulet, LeatherSoul and Leffot to see if anything interesting has popped up (as if you guys wouldn't mention it...). Despite all of this, here you go goading me. I'm awfully tempted. The only thing stopping me is that I needed the 9C in the cigar lhs I bought last month from Alden of DC
You guys can see an addict from a mile away: he's always blaming others for his troubles...
I hope someone else on the forum grabs those 9D's and posts some cool snapseed pics soon!
I'm still debating about whether ~$900 is a justifiable price to plunk down for those Plaza shell 8 indy's on Frans Boone. But, I'm proud that I have broken the 5-week-long streak of a new Alden purchase on Mondays despite having driven myself batty with the Alpine Grain stain from this morning, which I'm glad to report, has faded to an imperceptible dark spot on the vamp. *sighs with relief*
Of course, guys, if you catch wind of the whiskey LWB in a barrie 8.5d, please notify me immediately!!
BTW, my thoughts on Adam/AoC: he's boundaried about the returns, but he is a thorough guy and a gentleman. I was a bit put off by the printed card stock announcing his return policy, as well as his several e-mails reminding me to not leave signs of a try-on. However, in the end, he answered all of my questions and sent me a pristine pair, which was followed up by a very inquisitive and thankful e-mail about a week after the purchase. I concur with others on the forum: I would buy from him again, but only if I had established my size from a purchase or try-on elsewhere. NB: He apparently stocks shoes not listed on his website; I think it's worth it to ask him specifically about pairs you're looking for. I had no way of knowing he had cigar LWBs a couple weeks ago. In fact, he said to me that he still has some on hand, so go for it!
