How do others here find and keep up with all the special/pre order possibilities? I keep seeing awesome Alden shell boots and shoes that I would love to own, only to learn that they were part of a pre-order and not available. I also have read about people paying for a pre-rder and years later it still hasn't been fulfilled.
Does anyone here keep a list updated that you can share with the group? Maybe a special thread with the PO list and deadlines?
no community list here, atleast none I've ever seen. some retailers (leffot off the top of my head) will post preorders on their website. otherwise, best bet is to call the retailers and inquire. there may a spot you can fill, or put your name down and if extra inventory arrives, they'll hopefully call you.
what you have read is right though, concerning long wait times. some here are 2+ yrs on makeups. I'm only on one preorder (currently at 10 months).
otherwise, just check the forum frequently and you'll pick up on the arrivals/sales from other posters. most recently, the shoemart sale.
