    Same here. Says they should be here Friday although I'm thinking Monday is more likely.

    Yes..... You are confirmed for your order, it's yours! However another person took a call and did the same thing. There's 2 confirmed orders the winner typically is one who's order was placed first. I also think you know some one at TSM, they physically grab your pair of shoe, boxes and labels them...now they are ready to ship. I'm saying there's variables I don't fault TSM on this process, it just blows up!

    One time I bought a pair of Alden #8 Chukkas from the irregulars list. They even issued me a tracking # but the kicks never left CT...

    I waited like 3 days only to call and find out that it was a inventory mistake...:foo:

    Nevertheless, thank God that this most recent acquisition is on its way out of CT already...:)

    As an additional data point, this round I ordered the CS lady told me that now they're checking stock in two places - they have their internal inventory system, but things get sold so fast that they literally post what is being sold on an instant message system which can be searched by the other CS reps. Given that we're in 2015 there's got to be a better real-time inventory system - haha!

    True. When I called back for the LHS the rep said let me hold/grab (can't quite remember) those for you so no one else gets them. So maybe it's a little better.

    Both of mine were picked up at 5:03pm and left CT at 9:29pm. Estimates for Friday.

    I treat these TSM irregular sales like the day after Christmas sales, intense competition with only very short supply for the most desirable pairs. The smart ones are onsite at the shop and when the sale starts they grab the good stuff before lists make it out. I've been told the irregulars are not on display in the store anymore. I feel comfortable in saying there's some back door ways of finding what's on the list sooner than the vast majority. I don't think that's gonna change so I just deal with it.

    I'm more interested in getting on pre-order lists and locking in a spot for specific models I want. I'd rather pay the normal rate, issue free and no worries. I don't mind scoring an irregular pair and always look forward to the hunt!

    Excellent. What size did you get?

    I wonder if most of the allotment went to SF :)

    I got an 8 and hope they work out..I'm 7.5d Barrie; and for Chukkas I should probably go down to 7.. Recently scored for me grails of Cigar AND Whiskey chukkas in 7.5d and they are easily a 1/2 size too large..I will likely sell one of them (both bnib) then wait another couple years for them to come around again to get 7s..

    My friend, it was a bit of both. That was at the crack of dawn and they are on the darker side of whiskey.

    Congras! Hope 8D works for you, Mike!

    You are 7.5D in barrie and those 7.5 chukkas are too big for you? Thats strange.

    Still no confirmation email after 24hrs... Guess I lost


    They definitely need to upgrade their inventory software
