Thanks to MDubs for sending me the most recent update of TSM irregulars. I tried to call and order the 403 in a 10.5D, and apparently I was way too late. The girl I spoke to said the phone rings off the hook as soon as they send out that list. I guess I'll just have to wait for the next one.

How often do they email updates on that list?

Also, anyone have an extra pair of 403 in 10.5D?

I did the exact same thing--I'm not sure I regret it, but I haven't been wearing my antique edge longwings much. need to break em out.

I sold my Leffot Color 8 LWB and plan on picking up another color 8 blucher (I was thinking the 975 but I am also considering the captoe or NST blucher). My antique color 8s looked great sitting in store or on my shoe rack, but I didn't really reach for them that much. For example during the time I had both, I probably wore my Alden 990 10 times and the Leffot LWB one or two times. When it came to more casual outfits, I reached for my Leffot tankers or cigar chukkas or some other shoe more. This may be a function of the season, but during the summer and fall I wore my Leffot saddles more than the color 8 LWB.

To me the 975 moves much more easily between business casual and casual than the Leffot LWB, which look very casual. If Aldens are primarily a casual endeavor for you, then the Leffot longwings may be the ultimate shoe. But for my purposes, other shoes fit a bit better. YMMV.

FYI...Anyone wanting to try the 9.5D barrie black shell six eye chukka (mouthful) from the seconds list, it will be back in stock next week. A really nice fitting, sleek barrie shoe if you can deal with the somewhat warped top.

Speaking of longwings, thinking of getting a pair in #8.  (Ordering your own xmas gifts can be fun!) 

 

So the question becomes - leather sole or commando sole?  I really like the commando sole on the AF53s, but is this shoe too formal for commandos?  I have several leather soles and am fine with them.

 

But, I live in the northeast so the extra traction has been helpful so far this fall/winter.

 

Thoughts?

Thanks. They do have a nice selection of models including this one. Size availability, as expected, is hit or miss, but they say they get restocked.

Thanks. Link says they're sold out. I've never ordered from Leather Soul but I assume that unless they do another run for preorders, that's the end of that.

Yea...Instant gratification is not a term we typically use with Alden. You can contact LeatherSoul to see if they are planning on another run. You can reserve your size for $100 if they are doing a run.

I hear you. I've gotten lucky (and spoiled) with a couple pairs off the shelf from J Crew, back when they didn't exclude Aldens from the storewide sales.
