Thanks, yeah. I am a little bummed. I was very much looking forward to these. I am going to ask Kathy what she wants to do with them. I don't want to buff them and return them or reno them and then return them unless she tells me to.

Sad Mike,

That sucks. My Whiskey PTBs have a similar mark on them but luckily for me it's on the heel so not very prominent and it doesn't really bug me.
I think that mark on the toe like that would just bug me too much.

Thanks all for your quick replies. They are 10D as pictured. I will not just return them, but am interested to see how they look in natural light and if the factory has something they can do about it. Worth a shot. They are still absolutely beautiful shoes.

Thanks,
Mike

Have you spoken with Leffot about the C width issue for their next batch of Navals? I know they usually accommodate E widths; I would hope that they would let one pre-order a narrow size.

 

Best of luck to you and the rest of our gang in finding whatever grails you seek.

I still have faith in the Thor boot.  If not, I can live with out it.  It would save me some money too.  When I tried on the Naval boot and Steven and I determined that a C width is the only thing that would work, he said that I would be able to get them if he ever did a pre-order.  When I asked if he thought he would ever do a pre-order for the Color 8 Naval boot, he kind of clammed up and became disinterested in speaking with me.

I was joking. Every time I inquire about his shell it seems they're mto aka NO CHANCE I'll be finding any.

I thought you might have been.  I found them on their website after Uncle directed me to them.

Not sure the factory will be that willing to help when they know that some other sucker will gladly pay full-price for them as is.  Remember, Alden HATES those who buy their shoes.

BG, I think we are almost there!! In the post about the snuff it says tan and dark brown are due in shortly! Just in time for winter...

Good luck Mike. Hope it works out.

I got home and opened them up and started photographing.

The green box of joy! Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)



My new Whiskey PTBs!!!



Again, unfortunately when I took this picture I saw a scratch (HORROR) on the toe area of the left shoe.



Here is a close-up of the scratch. It does not look like something that I could just buff out as it looks like it is at the dye level.



My poor new scratched PTBs. :-(


So, what do you think I should do? The scratch is clearly in the highest visible place of the shoe.

Thanks!

-Sad Mike

Those are an awesome pair of shoes, they have been on my purchase list for a while. Sorry to hear about that scratch/defect and hope it all works out.

So what do you do? Is it detrimental to "stuff" them in there?

Boxes are usually too tight with shoe trees so I just use the dust bags and store them on shelves.

Thank you for the insight

There was a member who is selling a pair of 8.5 whiskey PTB's. Searched the forum and classifieds with no luck. If they're still available, please respond or send me a PM.

Their boxes are silly small. Don't know why. I don't store mine in their boxes.

I also don't get why they say "Custom Bootmaker" on them either.

Bought a pair of pre owned whiskey shortwing from a fellow forumer. Liked it so much. Its in a good condition.
Thanks again Burton.
By the way does anyone have the list of J Gilbert 2014 make ups for pre order. Remember seeing it here but just cant find it.

Yep, I can finally start to see the light at the end of the tunnel on this one. I wrote to Will from LS and he said they expect the tan and dark brown sometime in the next 2 months.
