    I find it funny the preorder email got to me at 12:38.

    At least I have my Whiskey to look forward to this afternoon, in more ways than one.

    I got in for the Leffot #8 NST shoe. I have had my eye on that for a while and just recently tried the Aberdeen last and discovered how much I like the fit of it.

    7.5 E on those naval boots were among the first to go. Congratulations to those that got in on the order. Looks warm and nice in there from the cold sidewalk outside...

    I have a pair of these. Love the leather. Absolutely beat the crap out of them this winter and just cleaned them up a little (brushed with a little water). You wouldn't know the abuse they took.

    I really wish I would've cancelled my meeting and been on high alert for those Leffot Naval boots! I saw the email during my meeting, yes I surf the net while people jabber about nothing, then logged on after the meeting and kept thinking, this is a glitch right...refresh, refresh. uh check sytleforum alden, what's going on...oh crap, they really did sell out...okay, email Leffot...waiting, waiting, regret, banging head against wall, Kicking myself literally. I hope they email me back and say, sure we can add you what's your size" hahaha

    I guess they will run this again later this year? I've joined a cult...this is insanity. :decisions:

    ^^ Looks like dandy shoe care to me. If so, Alex is an artist. Those are ridiculous.

    I inquired today if my local Alden retailer O'Conners would be getting any loafers for the Spring/Summer collection and no luck for stock to try on in store, they did offer to order in a pair in snuff unlined flex if I wanted and checked the current price... $690 CAD [​IMG]. I had to politely decline having them brought in for me. I was speaking to him about a few other things and said how I was thinking of the 975 still too and he told me the upcoming new pricing on those... $900 CAD.


    They do have a pair left in my size at the old pricing of $775 so I have them on hold and considering picking them up on Monday. I figure no time like the present if I am going to snag a classic considering the 975 is priced just over $700 USD on the Alden SF.

    I wonder what he uses to burnish like that, they are stunning.

    Gents,

    If you have an interest in a hunter green suede tanker boot, Citishoes has them (apparently in most sizes). I passed as I think they overlap too much with the choco tankers.

    The 10E Leffot NSTs are staring me in the face. I wish there were more in the wild photos of that model on Google...

    Yeah there is a lot of panic around Leffot pre orders going fast, when a simple call or email tends to alleviate the issues/concerns. Or at least in my experiences.
