You'd be almost stupid to buy anything at full price from MJ Bale. They seem to be almost always running a 'promotion'.

 

Yep but the same is pretty much true of a lot of online stores.  Every month saba, country road, trenery have some sort of promotion.  Herringshoes/pediwear usually have a monthly promo etc.

 

If only the 25% off extended to the multibuy, that would be a tidy nice saving

Alternatively, Need Supply (http://needsupply.com/mens/brands/alden/indy-work-boot.html) and The Alden Shop of San Francisco (http://www.aldenshop.com/DrawOnePage.aspx?PageID=3) also ship. Shipping is $135 per pair of shoes for the latter!

 

The Brown Man is the expert on Alden lasts and fits.

 

This is also a useful resource:

 

 

I know this is WAY more than you asked for but hope it helps!

 

 

Thanks heaps Gerry.  I am waiting for Tassels HK to open today and I will call them for their pricing.  Probably be an eye-watering mouth-gaping experience.  

 

For $667+$135= US$802 for the Alden, then Carmina also comes into consideration at EU$500.  Unless you sell me your Lindricks, of course.

 

Edit: also bloody Vass too.

Sales are your friend. RL is doing their sale atm, Lindricks for ~650ish before shipping. Alden shell is becoming overpriced for what it is, imo, but they are an accessible option. I'd be looking at Carmina at the moment with their free shipping offer. Vass shell is probably going to end up around $900 or so, which puts it out of the same sort of range as Carmina, Alden, etc, unfortunately.

No more sizes in Lindricks, as usual. Carmina does not have a brogue, and their online shop is hardly ever updated. Vass sizing is tricky. So that leaves Alden, Barrie last.  Never realised it is so much hassle to get some horse ass.  But these are brands on SF.  Just wondering whether there are any other brands making shell boots out there.

I watched Chris Lilley's latest show last night. Safe to say, I don't realy get his type of humour. If I put myself in the position of someone who does find it funny, I still find it rather obvious and lazy. Anyone care to enlighten me as to why this guy is so popular?

He's just trying to curry favour regarding curry flavour.

Might be worth emailing Betty and seeing if they're making this boot in burgundy? http://www.shop.carminashoemaker.com/articulo.asp?idarticulo=4582226

 

I know there's some other companies making shell boots, Trickers, Meermin, Septieme Largeur, if that helps.

Thanks mate, I'm concerned as to whether they'll be wide enough. Are there any other brands you could recommend I try locally?

Depends is he using a moulin à légumes and fresh truffle in his mash? Of course any civilised person would use organic milk butter and pink Murray River salt that is a given.
