    Thanks gentlemen! My Alden collection is still modest, but I'm proud of what I do own.

    I was actually considering shell LHS for summer. But, would your feet sweat up without socks? Is lined or unlined better for no socks?

    I believe I read somewhere on this forum that unlined is better for sockless so the lining doesn't hold on to the moisture.

    have the naval boots and on the preorder for the alt weins. i realized they may be too similar so i am willing to let it go. I fear that if they end up in my hands, I will just keep them.

    Just got off the phone with DC wanted to see if I would be getting a pair of Cigar Captoe's on the next go-round. I'm #3 for 12D, 2 ordered. :brick:

    Been on the list for over a year!

    How many do they usually make in each size per run? I see a lot of "2 in my size" posts - is that the norm? 2 per size per run?

    Depends on the size of the run.

    I'm surprised 12D are getting 2. With a 24 pair run usually we get one pair. I think most retailers order 2 pairs of the more popular sizes (8-10) one each of the small and large sizes and perhaps 1 pair each of 8E-10E

    Don't forget about the people who require narrow or extra wide as well and those 24 pairs are gone in a hurry!

    If it is a small run like the Whiskey WTB (12 pairs) forget it.. every man for himself!

    Crap. I was 9 or 10 I think on the 9 1/2 D's for the Ravello. So assuming two pairs were made I'm still 4 to 5 runs away from owning a pair assuming every person keeps theirs :( I'm on the list for Cigar too, but don't know what place.

    There were two 11.5D as well for some reason. I'm 3rd so feel y'all's pain.

    Also. Alt wein boot? I knew EP had the shoe last summer for preorder but don't remember the boot.

    The boot pre-order was about 6 weeks ago. It sold out in.. oh about 7 seconds.

    Should have guessed. I skip a few days in that thread and miss out. Sounds similar to the Rydan boot.

    I think unlined just feels better on your foot (moisture being part, but not all of it). I wear my lined color 8 Ranger sockless and it feels pretty good, but not nearly as comfortable my unlined 8 Dover.

    What do you guys think about these shoes with dark denim/ in general? I'm in a very casual work environment. Yes or no?

    Thanks, it was very difficult to find much info at all about the 911. I'll take some much better shots of them for the community once I have a little spare time and daylight. The color is pleasantly a little darker than expected, and have been insanely comfortable out of the box. Just making sure I want to keep these before I put a crease in them or take a step off the carpet.

    I've tried every permutation of size with the Allen Edmonds 5 last two years ago and cannot make walnut strands work for me. So these seem to be an even better alternative and a slightly more versatile color.

    Any other feedback is greatly appreciated, are these keepers?
