    Yeah, sorta strange but I guess since it was an Alden shop and not some third party, they may have just done whatever the heck they felt like doing.

    But if it was a third party shop, they would likely be contractually obligated to fill the order as specified by the buyer.

    If I didn't already like my 403s so much I might consider these but cannot justify it for that reason.

    they don't but i called and talked to someone. also. you can figure it out on some because the list the alden model, which are stock so just searching you can see that the navy suede PTB for instance is the same as the Alden Madison which is on the barrie.

    hmm - maybe i am wrong, but isn't Alden Madisons Chukka on the Leydon last and unlined compared to Roden Grays lined one on the Barrie last?

    I've seen them at Alden Madison Ave. What attracted me to the Tassels version was that it was in Barrie vs the usual Leydon (I'm not sure what last Alden Madison has).

    It seems to me with the insane popularity Alden has had over the past 5 years that they have developed a "Jesse James West Coast Chopper mentality". Back when West Coast blew up on the early 2000s the demand was so great for their bikes (Motorcycles) that even though you were paying MTO prices they TOLD YOU what bike you were getting...and if you didn't like that, there was someone else right behind you who would.

    Highs in the low 60s this weekend, lows in the upper 40's. Time to break out the suede for the first time all season this weekend...

    This is very tempting... Only question is are whiskey chukkas and whiskey indy's redundant... I may also inquire about the color 8 Indy from LS...

    I own the whiskey chukka & will be purchasing the whiskey Indy, but don't look to me for moderation when it applies to Alden shell. If you look at the LS blog Tom states that he has only a 6.5D & 10.5D left in the #8 Indy. You snooze, you lose @ LS.

    Yeah... #8 seems readily available in various forms... Whiskey is rarer... I may have to jump on those...
