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,

Haha its cool. I would have been spending money that I shouldn't be spending anyway. I'm happy for all the people who got the sale price honored. I'm totally jealous of you guys.

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

I know SFTG LOVES the snap last.  I have no experience with it, so can't help much, but I really like the hampton for this style of shoe.

 

Buy both return 1?

 

Or get the BB 30% off when the next corporate event takes place.  I think I remember them having one shortly after xmas last year...

Those are beautiful. They're on my radar and probably my next purchase.

I have bought AMAZING aldens at a great price from tsm.
But, they cancelled my order for cigar lhs a couple of years ago. They were priced around $500. They were cancelled after I received a shipping confirmation.
The email said they had an inventory mistake. RIIIIIIIIIIIIGHT.

I like both the Snap and Hampton, but the Snap happens to fit my foot a bit better. I have the Alden for BB version of the 9015 and 9016 - and each is counted among my favorites for dress shoes. The Alden for BB version can be hard to find, so by necessity you may have to go with the Hampton stock model. If you can get both, do it, and keep the one that fits the best. A few years ago, I did just that - bought both versions, tried them on, and kept the one that fit the best. The Snap, for my foot, was slightly more snug than the Hampton. But that of course could be the other way around depending on your foot type.

In Alden's printed literature and in email exchanges I have had with Alden, they liken the Snap to the Hampton in terms of fit and appearance.

Can't go wrong either way. nod[1].gif

I remember the TSM cigar LHS episode well.

I'll breathe a sigh of relief only when the FedEx tracking displays tomorrow.

Thanks for the suggestions gentlemen.  There happens to be a BB version in stock in my size.  I think I will give it a try!  All the best...

I got this message and a few mins later an update on my order changing the status to Cancelled.


Thank you for your order. Unfortunately this order is on hold because we are unable to verify the billing information for this credit card.

YEAH RIGHT same card I used a few weeks ago w/o any issues.
