    If the opportunity comes up to back up any rare fav models you gotta go for it, I would back up my whiskey LHS if the chance came around.

    Just pulling this up from a search as the last bit of discussion on the black Walter. I'm on this one too. I last chatted with Leffot about a month ago and they're pretty mum. But it's nearing 9 months since I put in my order (August 13) for a boot which was quoted to take 4-6 months. Anyone know what going on @ Alden and when I might realistically get my boot?

    seems Alden has difficulty with black shell and antique welts. not sure why, but they mentioned there were issues and they will no longer continue to make that combo going forward. this is direct from Alden.

    Hello,

    As I begin my Alden collection, there are a few pairs that are at the top of my list. I would love to own a pair of whiskey shell cordovan plain toe bluchers. Unfortunately, many of the shoes/boots that are at the top of my list are not currently being made. Any tips?

    Can sometime tell me a bit about shell unlined loafers? I'm interested in a pair for summer and I see a lot of photos of them here and IG.

    Just wondering what last they're on and any recommendations on where to pick them up.

    Shell unlined LHS are exclusive for Brooks brothers (except a recent run in color 2 shell made for Tassels HK) and they are on the Van last, you can find it on BB's online store.

    My new #8 PTB, with an emphasis on the "plain." Sadly, being a EEE, I find I am quickly exhausting all of the shell options from Alden.

    Here's what I suggest (what I did):

    1. Get on as many waiting lists as possible
    2. Buy non-exotic offerings from retailers to build a rapport
    3. Wait a long time
    4. Get frustrated when you see the constant posts of exotics in this thread
    5. Drink heavily due to said frustration
    6. Get a pair of C&J MTO in whiskey to tide you over
    7. Still don't be satisfied
    8. Be jealous of mdubs, try to dislike him out of jealousy but realize he's a really nice guy
    9. Drink more and wonder how there are new exotics posted here weekly

    I'm considering a pair of BB unlined LHS as well. I take a 8.5 D in Barrie. Given that these are unlined, can anyone tell me if they fit differently than the lined LHS? Will I need to go down a size or width? Thanks!
