    Me? No I didn't. I thought about it and then decided, like RTP, to not do it. I was actually going to change sizes too. Mine are a 10.5 and are a bit loose on me, so I was going to go down to 10. I was talked into the 10.5 by the RL SA.

    Those Straight Tip Blutchers are awesome! Very nice color. Are they Plaza Lasted?

    Thanks.

    These are the BB version. I believe they are on the "Snap" last, which is similar to Plaza, but I'll let others more knowledgeable chime in on that.

    Aside from the last, I believe this has a single leather sole while the 2160 (Aberdeen) has a double leather sole.

    Whiskey LHS have landed, got some free paste wax as well. The color is even more impressive than I imagined they would be, I cannot wait to see how these develop over time.

    Jim at Alden SF was nice enough to offer to ship via USPS. Had I went with the standard UPS, I guessed I would have had to pay maybe over another $100+ for them at delivery. Very great service in case any Canadians are looking at shopping there.

    How did you catch wind of the discount in the first place? Was it on one of the other threads?

    It was initially posted in the C&J for RL thread, if I remember correctly.

    Thanks for posting; mine arrive on Monday - I was hoping the actual color would be more brown than yellow, and yours look great - exactly what I wanted.

    Hope mine arrive the same way!

    Cheers,

    Right. I've been #3 on the list, I've been told 2 shoes came in in my size, I've seen a SF member announce he couldn't take his pair in that size, and I've called in minutes later to be sternly told that ZERO pairs came in in that size. What can/did I do? Nothing, of course.

    Don, I am surprised to see you don't own a #8 LHS. Seems like that would incorporate well into your wardrobe.

    I have an old pair of Weejuns that have filled that role but the allure of a shell replacement is getting high

    Actually, my BB ones have double leather soles. Maybe they use a thinner sole b/c they don't look as chunky as the 975, for example.
