I am serious indeed. PM me if you want me to have you added to the list. Like I said, they won't be submitted until Spring since this is a new design to Kathy at Alden DC. She is planning to do them on Waterloc soles.
Alden DC just takes your name and size. No deposit or pre-purchase is necessary. This is the 3rd or 4th set that I have gotten her to run, all have worked like a champ and not required any upfront cost, despite me requesting non-standard narrow sizes.
Anyone aware of stores planning on getting whiskey LHS in? Citishoes says they expect some coming in mid next year (I haven't tried on getting on a list or anything there), but I was wondering if there were any others.
Is the Ravello Plaza Indy something that Alden DC has run before or is it a totally new makeup? If it's just a re-order I can see it happening, but if it's brand new I wouldn't get too excited. We tried to get Kathy to make a group MTO Cigar boot (the "Thor" boot - see Bakes' profile pic) almost 2 years ago and she hasn't been able to get it confirmed by Alden yet. Maybe if you can keep it to around 12 people you have a better shot. I think there were over 30 people on the Thor boot list, and she was having trouble getting an order that large confirmed for a rare shell color.
