You're welcome. It was total happenstance. I saw the link on their page, but it was dead. I really want that makeup, so I called and spoke to Mike. He was actually editing the page as we spoke and told me it should be working within the hour.

So of course I wanted to share the news with you enablers here who have helped me get an expensive collection of unnecessary footwear.

Also want to say thanks for the heads up, just paid the deposit for a pair of Alt Wiens.

Still upset I didn't jump on these when I had the chance.  I believe they were a special make-up for the Tribeca J Crew, Ludlow Shop. I had them on the phone, size in stock, and decided to hold off until I got home where I had a $200 J Crew gift card. :brick:  I was a bit on the fence as I had just acquired the DC ravello lwb with brown edge.  Thought it might have been redundant.  I believe it was the summer or spring of 2012.

PSA:

FYI I scored a great deal on these in size 10.5D:

I thought they were on the Van last but were too tight for me- must be on some other last (aberdeen?).

Anyways, I returned them to Brooks Brothers yesterday so you can expect to see them become available online in the next few days.

I was not trying to "target" you... 

When I say "my friend" particularly on this thread, I genuinely mean it.  I have a great deal of respect for many here that I've been conversing with for years.  @aldenwear , I should have known better than to think you were "targeting me."  No hard feelings toward anyone here...

 

Hope y'all are enjoying your afternoon. :)

Pretty shocked I got in on the Alt Wein preorder after it being up for an hour. If this were a Leffot preorder I would have been SOL.

I was thinking the same thing. Do you think the difference is in the website? Maybe more people know about Leffot? I'm certain that if this was a Leffot preorder they would have sold out in 30 seconds, no exaggeration.

I don't check epaulet as much as I check Leffot. I also don't get emailed from epaulet like I do Leffot about these things. If it wasn't for the PSA here I would have never known about the new preorder.

First of all there was no email in advance to build interest. Second likely fewer people check SF threads (in the last 3 hours) than get emails from Leffot. Third, 4 simultaneous preorders for 96 units = more supply, even though only 24 units are shell. In short it makes sense. Let's see if the Alt Wiens last another day or two though. Doubt that. Let's not forget that Leffot's recent preorder sellouts in minutes are a recent (2014) phenomenon.
