***The official Alden thread *** - Page 3111
Weird, it doesn't seem like you even looked at his other videos. His videos are nothing like mine, not by a long shot.
I see he posted some pictures on the website from the early days which made me a little nostalgic. I bought my first pair of Aldens through him when I was fresh out of college and have owned a number of the special make-ups he did. Unfortunately, I let most of them go, so it's nice to see them again.
Thanks for sharing! Those AF2 Mahogany shell wingtips...

It is pretty crazy. I do think though that NRO has made a concerted effort to correct the customer service disasters of the very recent past. Their communication/e-mail link on their website promises a reply within 24 hours. If you try to contact them through their system, they are fairly efficient.
Just as another data point, as I mentioned before, the order I placed with the Presidents day sale did arrive, but I sized it wrong and had to have it exchanged. About 10 days after sending my boots back, the replacement came today, with an Alden special order slip in it. The level of email responsiveness was well within expectations for a small company, and they were always pleasant with me. It was my first NRO order, so I can't speak for them in the past, but this was all in a good experience, and I would try them again.
On an unrelated note, I am tempted by the Leffot preorder tobacco chamois LWB's. Is it likely that 9E on Leydon Suede Chukkas == 8.5E on Barrie LWBs?
