I was put on the list last summer by Yenni at no cost. She then called me when someone dropped out out of the current order so I got mine in the Fall. I believe Alden of NY (double leather sole) can either put you on the list for free or if you pay then you are more or less guaranteed when they come in.

Still look great sazon!

Thanks Gents!

Yenni usually takes a $200 deposit, from my dealings with her. She is always a pleasure. Sweet as candy.

What other shell offerings are available for pre-order from any dealer right now? It's frustrating how hard it is to get a pair.

Are you referring to specialty shells or shell in general? I preordered a six eyelet chukka#8 from yenni @jgilbert. As well as a plaza cap toe from LS also#8.

Thanks you guys for the info about J Gilbert. I don't know what's easier, burning money or reading this board?

That is correct, the order has not been confirmed, so she is collecting names for a list of those interested. If and when Alden confirms, she will then take pre-orders, based on what she shared with me yesterday...

She was literally collecting names for this same order over a year ago in 1/2012. Still no word on it yet? Wow, I'm glad I didn't put down a deposit (non-refundable). 

 

Nothing against the shop, it just seems too iffy these days with Alden.

Those are some sweet cigars. I'm mac'n some cap toe boots today otherwise I'd jump. Suppose a look at Citishoes wouldn't hurt. :-)

As promised a short how to on dealing with indy boot tongue wander
1. you will need a piece of thin leather cut 1/2-3/4 inches wide and long enough to wrap around the tongue almost touching end to end
2. wrap the leather strap around the tongue at spot you want it .holding it in place close boot to @ where it goes when laced and mark the strap thru the lace hole with a marker
3. punch holes in the strap at marked spot
if you dont have a leather punch you might have access to a paper hole punch at
at any rate you gotta get a couple holes in strap somehow
4. rather than try to explain how to lace the strap into posistion ill post a couple pic that show it

400



sorry for the crappy pics all
i got is an i phone i hope you get the idea
an alternate to this method that works good is to put on your boot and mark the tongue thru two eyelet holes one above the other on one side
punch small holes just big enough to pass a needle at each mark
then stich a strong thread thru the upper eyelet thru the tongue into the lower hole out thru the lower eylet repeat thru the upper eye and so on
after the tongue "resets" you are just left with a couple small holes in the tongue
oh be sure the boots are laced when you do this otherwise its pretty difficult to pass the laces thru after the tongue is stitched to the eyelets
I hope this ramble is understandable I have used both methods and they work well
dont hesitate to ask if anything is not clear im more than happy to help
