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.

And not calling is not just an SF rule, that's an internet rule. Never, ever, ever, ever, ever call when a surprise sale shows up for something that is typically not on sale. I wonder if anyone who placed an order will actually have the sale price honored.

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

I just got an email saying my order has shipped.

Thanks, man.

Greetings Guys,

I've been eyeing the Indy boot for a while now and I just want to try to get the best deal out there. Would any stores (that sell wides) ever have any sales? I really doubt it, but I thought I'd ask. 7.5 E is a tough size to find, but might as well pay the extra for the perfect fitting shoe.

Regards,

You poor, shoe-deprived soul...  it's a shame you have nothing with which to cover your bare feet!

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. .

I actually had that exact same question...  which model should I go for, the Alden stock perf cap toe bal (9016) or the made for BB version.  I believe it is an issue regarding the snap last versus the Hampton.

 

Does anyone have a strong feeling one way or the other??  SevenFoldTG?  Uncle??  Thanks in advance...

I like TSM, bought a lot of stuff from them. However...getting a shipping notice does not always indicate you are getting the item. Several times for Alden's ends list, and Alden belts IO've got shipping notice, and then a day or 2 later I get a notice item was not in stock. I hope everyone that got shipping notices gets their items. Pretty rare to get discounts on Aldens from TSM from website so congrats to all!

See Ya,
Steve
