Something a little unique today.
This is a makeup that Leather Soul did a while back.
Color 8 Nassau Blucher
270 deg flat welt (wheeled)
Single leather sole
They do seem to crease a lot, but I think that is attributed to having one less pair of eyelets than the traditional 990.
They are lined.
I've seen double E models at Alden NYC, but mainly in shoes/loafers. Indy boots are stocked in Double E. Any store with a preorder policy should be able to order you a Double E size if they are doing an order of a boot (cordovan, for example).
Shoemart just updated my ravello cordovan wingtip boot order to "shipped" a day ago! I thought I would never get my preorder fulfilled, but now it is on its way! I'm so excited " src="http://files.styleforum.net/images/smilies/bounce2.gif" />. Just hoping there aren't any major flaws with them.
Congrats! How long has the pre-order been in waiting?
I believe I preorderd on 3/20/13. On 10/3/13 the order status went to "new" (which I'm guessing is when Alden accepts the order?). Then yesterday they finally shipped. Feel very fortunate to not have waited longer. Just hoping they don't have major defects. Would be a bummer to have to send them back.
