    I'm terribly sorry. I was innocently calling on the assumption that the message on the site -- "please call to place order" -- was simply their normal routine when shoes were out of stock. I expected to call, place the order, receive the discount, and proceed. I had no reason to believe that the sale posting was a mistake prior to the call.

    Yesterday, I received my color 8 LWBs from Leffot. Look at that sole: clean, unblemished, perfect. It'll never look like that again. But I can't wait until these babies are creased and form-fitting.

    At any rate, after - what? five? - pairs of shoes, I have finally determined my proper size on the barrie last. I don't live near a brick-and-mortar store, so I've had to buy shoes via mail order to try them on. And, of course, by the time I've worn them a bit to figure out if they fit, they're creased and I can't return or exchange them. So...I've spent quite a bit of money trying to figure out my size. But I've done it, by jove! And the first pair of Aldens that I will own that actually fit are, in my opinion, the most beautiful make-up Alden makes and, frankly, the awesomest shoe of any brand. They are...color 8 LWB with antique edge from Leffot. Happy day. Oh, happy day. Thank you for listening.

    Greetings Guys,

    I've been eyeing the Indy boot for a while now and I just want to try to get the best deal out there. Would any stores (that sell wides) ever have any sales? I really doubt it, but I thought I'd ask. 7.5 E is a tough size to find, but might as well pay the extra for the perfect fitting shoe.

    Regards,

    MP

    You poor, shoe-deprived soul... it's a shame you have nothing with which to cover your bare feet!

    I actually had that exact same question... which model should I go for, the Alden stock perf cap toe bal (9016) or the made for BB version. I believe it is an issue regarding the snap last versus the Hampton.

    Does anyone have a strong feeling one way or the other?? SevenFoldTG? Uncle?? Thanks in advance...

    Quote:I like TSM, bought a lot of stuff from them. However...getting a shipping notice does not always indicate you are getting the item. Several times for Alden's ends list, and Alden belts IO've got shipping notice, and then a day or 2 later I get a notice item was not in stock. I hope everyone that got shipping notices gets their items. Pretty rare to get discounts on Aldens from TSM from website so congrats to all! See Ya, Steve

    Haha its cool. I would have been spending money that I shouldn't be spending anyway. I'm happy for all the people who got the sale price honored. I'm totally jealous of you guys.

    I know SFTG LOVES the snap last. I have no experience with it, so can't help much, but I really like the hampton for this style of shoe.

    Buy both return 1?

    Or get the BB 30% off when the next corporate event takes place. I think I remember them having one shortly after xmas last year...

    Those are beautiful. They're on my radar and probably my next purchase.
