    You wear your incredible collection very well. You have many styles that I admire. Of all of those styles, these are my favorites. These shoes scream style while exuding class.

    Couldn't have said better myself. Haven't seen Mac in color 4 though. It's usually odd styles in ravello.

    Thanks for the tips everyone, the black commando Indy will be a beater boot. Hence no need for shell.

    I will contact Adam at AOC to see if he can get my size on the next pre-order!

    I think he takes a deposit. But honestly, I am not sure since I have to get non-standard widths, so I am used to paying up front or a good portion up front.

    PSA - Apparently Alden SF got a shipment of whiskey ptb. I am not sure if it is purely for the people who are on the waiting list or not. Good luck.

    This is a funny story. Color 2 is quite red. Most color 4 batches are not terribly far behind. But both colors are certainly unique.

    Thanks for the reply. It sure is confusing. I will order both sizes from BB for making sure. Brooksbrothers should list Alden lasts on their website, it will make things way easier!

    you don't wear a 12 in barrie, right? so we wouldn't both be calling when they open looking for the same size?

    i mean, it's in my signature and everything!
