Same situation. I got the order confirmation like an hour later. I placed my order at around 3:30

Anyone have a comparison photo between the shortwing boot in #8 on Barrie versus Plaza? Debating between the two boots...

Indeed, I've been searching extensively for the shell Indy in barrie last for a bit and seems the last batch was made back in 2012, cigar no less - what I wouldn't give to have a time machine. Saw a few references to Alden SF's color 8 being barrie, but nothing to confirm those were actually the last. Here's the 40568H next to a barrie lasted NST, same size.

So when did most people get the list? I didn't get it until after 5pm eastern. They must have a really archaic system for getting this thing out - almost as if they have to do it manually, person by person?!

Trubalance is such an ugly last in my opinion.

How much do 405 Indy's stretch out after they're broken in? Just wondering how they should feel when trying them on..

 

1) Snug & comfortable

2) A bit tight & slightly uncomfortable

3) Squeezing to get in & uncomfortable

 

I feel like it should be at 2, but if they don't loosen up to get to 1 then that's not good. I'm also worried about it fitting perfectly when they're new and then stretching to be too big.

 

Thoughts?

I did not receive the list even though I have received it before....called the store to request 3 sizes and only received 1 of the 3....if anyone has the 11.5 list please send a PM.

I'm the one that was confused.  The #8 Dovers were one of the other pairs I had some interest in also.  But again, I was trying to be funny (not very successfully though).

Nothing real exciting in Bigfoot size on the 2nds list except for a size 13C tassels in cigar. I've already got those.

Glad some y'all made some good scores today.

See Ya,
Steve

Anything good in 11 E? (I'm guessing everything is gone anyways). 11.5d/e weren't too great

Haha after reading your post, I checked my spam and sure enough got the confirm. Hoping these #8 captoes fit!

I haven't gotten an order confirmation yet either. But I figured that they were absolutely swamped. They must dread sending out the seconds list. I would.

Cigars after a few wears.



Full-Straps with massive bloom.

@mdubs - those cigar capote bals are great--any chance it's 11.5D? satisfied.gif

I could only imagine how it was a couple months back when they had the flood of discounted whiskey, ravello and cigar
