So Uncle do you change shoes during the day? Only way I can imagine enjoying so many fine shoes.

I'm serious considering pulling the trigger on a pair of the J. Gilbert snuff suede wingtip boots. They are saying 4-5 months for delivery, is that what you all have experienced?

I think that is a reasonable time frame considering they are suede. The commando sole makes the process a bit more but should not be too bad. I pre-ordered them as well and I would be pleased to have them in 6 months

Beautiful shoes Uncle! I had never seen this makeup before. Thank you. As always the argyles are very cool.

BTW, those old Imperials in NOS condition are worth their weight in gold!
Anyone know who made Keith Highlander.I have #8 ptb, heaviest best constructed shoe I have ever laid hands on deserving of the name gunSHIP

4-5 months can hardly even be considered a wait compared to most Alden wait times. But then again I'm just bitter about having 4 pre-orders that are all one year plus and counting (including one that is now at 28 months and still waiting)

^^ That's just down right unbusinesslike.

I agree. I find it surprising J Gilbert told me that short a window considering I am at January 2012 for a pair of suede LWB's...However since these are "confirmed" it does give me some hope. I am not sure I have the patience to keep waiting through the LS pre-orders

I just ordered 2 pair of Alden factory shell cordovan irregulars.  Neither are ones I've seen lately  First pair are Monk strap model 1684 in a color called tan.  Not sure exactly what that is, maybe color #4?  It's a 13D in barrie last so hopefully it fits, my 14D Barrie have a lot of room left.  The other pair is a NST on Barrie last model 2450 in color #8.  Got that in a 14B and feel that's an easy fit.  Both pairs were $399.95 plus $10 shipping per pair.  Maybe I scored something real rare in the tan models...who knows?  Anybody know what colors the the 1684 come in?  What might tan be?

 

See Ya,

Steve

I think shell's loss has been suede and calf's gain. With shell all but extinct I'm sure Alden has more time to work on other materials.

Nice, but I don't think that's technically a gunship.  A gunship should have holes all around to shoot down nearby, inferior schooners.

Quick PSA, CitiShoes has a pair of whiskey longwings in 8E. Hope someone benefits from this info.

I think it is better for retailers to wait for orders to be "confirmed" before taking preorders. Leffot's wait times for preorders are 4-6 months, but they typically wait for confirmation before taking the preorder

I would have loved to get on a pre-order with Leffot, but every time I've tried they wouldn't let me order a narrow size (only D or E widths). I'll have to try again at some point and see if I can get on a pre-order with them.
