I was hoping to pick up a pair of #8 wingtip boots on Commando via Alden NY today, but no 8D....onto another list I go.

Ryden, THANK YOU, THANK YOU for the tip!  I've been wanting a whiskey PTB for the longest time.  So I called Alden DC and they had a fresh pair of Whiskey PTB in size 8D in stock right now!!  I had it shipped to me from DC to VA, so I should get them tomorrow.  I hope I didn't get your pair Ryden and tifosi, haha.  Now, I just have explain yet another shoe purchase to my dear wife.  Aww, man ...:butbut:

Are you friggin' kidding me??!!??

Here I was calling NY for a pair of wingtip boots cause I thought they would be in stock...and the Whiskey was in stock (which I didn't bother calling cause I would just end up on a list).

I have a pair of Navy CXL boots, and the color is a really nice, deep navy.  It does seem to lighten slightly over time as well.

 

 

Listed as Navy. I'm waiting on another pair of Barries to see how the fit is. If it's good, I may pick these up if they're still available. Thanks to everyone for the info.

I know, I was really shocked!  I called just hoping to get on the wait list.  Anyway, they said it's a darker shade of Whiskey.  I can't wait to get them tomorrow.

WOW! So glad that worked out for you. I just spoke with Kathy and luckily you did not grab my pair. Although for it minute or two it seemed like you had. Phew...

I am guessing darker whiskey is going to look like older Ravello...very curious to see how it looks

So why would you still be on a list when they had them in stock, Ryden?

She had forgotten to call me as they had a few lists going. They only just came in. They were not due till January but arrived early. I should have them this week.

OK, I'm glad.  I did ask if they were reserved before I bought them.  Thanks again, Ryden!

Not to mention 360 welt vs closed heel.

 

I am really coming around on the full strap, however, I feel as if it is a model that would look better after it is thoroughly worn-in.

I'm so pissed at myself right now.
