I'm with you 100%.

No problem. You can always e-mail them and Paul promptly responds.

King LHS.

Planning on getting these as soon as loafer weather hits (March or April)

EDIT - Are Alden shoes popular in China?

Yeah the grant captoes are untouchable. Theoretically the tankers and the bluchers can get a bit repetitive, though both get plenty of wear (I have worn both the past seven days). Honestly I will wear the bluchers more in the spring and summer anyway, so I should really keep all three.

Wonder if JGilbert has the same plaza pair in commando hmmm

There was a pre-order for these in Jan of this year. Let's see how deep in 2014 we will have to wait for them.

Yeah, I'm on several preorders from that run (black WT blucher, color 8 pitt boots and the CXL plaza wingtip). I'm hoping for arrival in time for Fall 2014.

I believe they are, but maybe even more so in Japan.

That is one nice looking shoe. Thanks for the pic.
