I have the Indy from Leather Soul in that smooth Tobacco Chamois. (Not reverse)

It is pretty indestructible.

They look good, Doc.

yes, I guess I'll have to back up my pre-order as I prefer the brogueing around the heel......

and yes, Epaulet's natty brixton is out of my size...

Here's something I don't understand:  I get that there's a shortage of Whiskey, Ravello, and Cigar shell, but why can't Alden offer at least "brown"?  AE doesn't seem to have any trouble getting "brown" shell.

No clue. Rancourt has no problem getting natural shell, and Carmina seems to be putting out enough saddle/cognac to make due.

I would say that 'cigar' is brown. I don't see any reason for it not to be a common color. At least the recent shades of it. Doesn't seem like any special hides are required as they claim for whiskey and ravello. Maybe if it was common they wouldn't have 3 or 4 people on a waiting list for each size at DC for the captoe boot. I highly doubt Alden is stupid.

I'd call them tomorrow and see if you can hop on the preorder in hopes that Alden can allocate the material for an extra pair for you.

I called and they said they had sold out at that point and they didn't have room for one additional. Really disappointing and frustrating, as I replied to their e-mail in about 2 hours... Next time, i guess I'll just buy a size that isn't mine and flip it or something.

Speaking of the Alden DC cigar boot - does anyone know the anticipated delivery date?  I seem to remember mid to late May time frame, but I'm not positive.

I think about 2 months or so

The natural shell that Rancourt gets have imperfections that Alden and other shoemakers don't want on their lighter colours. Rancourt doesn't mind, due to their casual aesthetic, and Horween rewards them with extra shells.

I'm in on a pre-order of these. Plunked down my deposit in Jan 2013. No word yet.
