Did The Shoe Mart just send out emails on seconds? If so could someone forward a size 10.5 and 11. I have been getting the emails, but not recently. swallace_1745at msn.com

At current sale price they are a steal. You won't find a better looking wingtip boot with the build quality at this price again. You can always return but don't sleep on it

That's what I did. Buy first, ask questions last.

I live in another country from the dealer but have friends there which can help.

Should i first email Alden or the retailer?

It is common but not normal. It is a relatively simple repair for any competent cobbler.

I have half a dozen Alden's with similar loose stitchings. Alden will fix it for free if you ask. But you will have to pay for outbound shipping if you were in the US. I don't know what would be the policy for overseas claims.

I would recommend seeking advice from Tassel, politely suggest to have the repair done locally, but have Tassel reimburse you.

+1 on the RL Lindricks at their presently reduced price point.

Thanks guys for the help and suggestions.

Have emailed the dealer.

 

Now to find a good enough local cobbler.
