    I'm a big fan of the modified last. That being said, I do have a pair of plain toe boots in #8 that is going up on ebay (buy/sell) soon

    Looking great DV! Good to see you on regularly again!
    They are still in production. We probably are just down to weeks instead of months but keep in mind Alden just got back into production after their summer break this week and so I am sure there is a process for stopping and restarting that slows things down all together, like you don't want to leave shoes on the lasts that whole time...
    Absolutely killer Don! Love the Color 8 BB Tassel! -Mike

    Are you talking the SW Bal order for AOM, Mike? Can't believe 3 1/2 months has already gone by.

    Ah, see, you must embrace the creases. I heart chukkas, especially that gorgeous cigar one you have.

    Which color was the SW Bal order? Cigar? I assume they filled up, but I am seriously craving an Alden SW Bal.

    I emailed Kathy from Alden DC to see if there was a 8D available. No 8D's but she did say they have a few pairs available. I asked her for sizes available and I'll post here if I hear back.

    EDIT: Kathy replied saying she is still sorting thru the orders to see what will be available, but mostly D widths this round

    Quote:These are all spoken for pre-orders I assume?

    The snafu was AoM. DC I'm not sure about a recent deliver. You can always call and ask though. Sometimes they have extras and as far as I know don't limit the order sizes to just size requests. They do a whole size run. AoM only submits for requested sizes. Granted I've only gotten in on one order so far with them but it seems thats how it runs with them.

    Does DC do cigar with just black edges or antique? Both? I should get on a list for those and whiskey with whoever does one.

    Henry, have you ever polished your color 8s? I have the shoes. I have the polish. Wondering whether to put them together or just stick with regular, vigorous brushing. Thanks.

    It's a Shortwing Blucher, not Balmoral. It was actually originally supposed to be a Balmoral, which is why it is on the Hampton Last, but is now a Blucher.
    See above. Not a Balmoral that is a typo or misunderstanding.
    It depends model to model. I believe the only model they do on Dark Edges are the LWB. Technically it's a Mohagony Edge and not Black. But she does the PTB, LHS and CT Boot on the Tan Antique Edge.

    This has been my experience with Kathy as well. She is definitely at the top of the list of Alden retailers in CS.

    Which is actually why I was signed up originally to get that model...and then backed out when its blucher nature was made manifest...

    Since then I have been feverishly searching for a Ravello/Cognac/Brandy full brogue oxford/short wing balmoral to no avail...

    Until now...[​IMG]

    Dude, you got one of the best looking models available already......Carmina 922 in Cognac....

    I had that same shoe and it did not fit properly...

    It was a sad day indeed in the life of the Watchman when I had to ship those off...
