post #68551 of 91718

I have a confirmed "New" order. We'll see if it gets cancelled. Has TSM always had the Factory Outlet section?...I don't recall seeing that before. It may be a way to snag an "overstock", "last pair", etc. Alden in the future without technically being on "sale" on the main site.

I ordered some Alden shoe trees online and so far my order is still good.  I knew I should've ordered the #8 LWB and/or PTB!!!

Alcibiades – funny you should say that cuz I was just thinking yesterday how nice and easy the CXL models felt at first with an easy break-in but this Chomepak leather version is definitely a harder boot to break in. The pictures of Andrew’s at 2 years old give me hope that these will be feeling good with a little work!

+1, please don't call during a sale like this.

I will report back on whether the sale price is honored.

They fit tighter than the lined, right? I have fit issues with the vamp of the LHS... After my feet shrank a bit I think I can now fit into a 9.5E LHS but I would worry about the unlined version

BTW, your photos of your 9016 convinced me to go with that model. Brooks Brothers on Madison said they didn't have any of their version and had no idea when a restock would come in, so 9016 it is. .

My unlined LHS in 9C fits noticeably tighter than my lined LHS in 9C.

Argh I saw this right before school. I woke up 15 mins before class and saw this, thinking I will order at lunch. WHY DID YOU CALL THEM???

I've been looking to buy the JCrew PCT boot (8h) for awhile now. For those of you who have scored them for less than retail, is it just a matter of entering each new promo code to see which one sticks?

I would try calling and saying you have a 30% off and would like to place an order. Sometimes you get lucky.

I'm terribly sorry. I was innocently calling on the assumption that the message on the site -- "please call to place order" -- was simply their normal routine when shoes were out of stock. I expected to call, place the order, receive the discount, and proceed. I had no reason to believe that the sale posting was a mistake prior to the call.

Yesterday, I received my color 8 LWBs from Leffot. Look at that sole: clean, unblemished, perfect. It'll never look like that again. But I can't wait until these babies are creased and form-fitting.

At any rate, after - what? five? - pairs of shoes, I have finally determined my proper size on the barrie last. I don't live near a brick-and-mortar store, so I've had to buy shoes via mail order to try them on. And, of course, by the time I've worn them a bit to figure out if they fit, they're creased and I can't return or exchange them. So...I've spent quite a bit of money trying to figure out my size. But I've done it, by jove! And the first pair of Aldens that I will own that actually fit are, in my opinion, the most beautiful make-up Alden makes and, frankly, the awesomest shoe of any brand. They are...color 8 LWB with antique edge from Leffot. Happy day. Oh, happy day. Thank you for listening.

I just got an email saying my order has shipped.

Got a TSM shipping notice...wish I would have kept everything in my cart, but can't complain about at least getting one.
