Hopefully he is in next week when I am in there.

Speaking of whiskey and Alden SF, Jim tracked down a pair of whiskey LHS in 9C (almost impossible to find) for me - via Alden DC, its sister store (they are both Alden "factory" stores) - about a year ago. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Yeah. I looked at that belt and when I saw they still had my size I grabbed it. Not just #4, but ONE PIECE of shell!! For those who have not seen it and want to know how, they are from the full right and left shell set that has not been separated. The quality of the bridge between the two shells is good enough in rare cases to make a full length belt. This was the first I had heard of such a thing and could not pass it up. Already have #8 and cigar Alden shell belts, so this will complement nicely.

Call Alden DC. It has been a while since I have been in but they seemed to always stock Whiskey and Cigar PTB's. It is where I purchased my first Alden's and that is exactly what I got.

If you are against the LWB it is possible they may have a shortwing.

Shoemart has a Ravello Chukka:

Thanks mediahound. They only had one size left, and it was mine baby. Now I'll have something of extremely rare quality and beauty with which to hang myself after my girlfriend finds out how much I've been spending on shell cordovan shoes. Wait until she finds out how much my golf club membership is going to cost.

I picked up these short wingtip bal/oxfords form Alden DC a couple of months ago and have really grown to love them.  The tremont last is different.  I wasn't enthralled initially but they have grown on me... I was under the impression that Kathy had a bunch of them in stock.  Not sure what their stock is like now.  You should call and ask for all of their whiskey options in stock in your size.
