    Wish I found this thread earlier on...You guys decided on a great looking boot; best luck with a smooth transaction on all parts. I will keep my eye out for the next MTO or other opportunity to own a truly unique Alden build.

    If you like this MTO, you should keep an eye on this thread and if hopefully this Thor boot is approved, the DC store may order extras that you could take advantage of.

    Talked to Kathy this morning & no news. Kathy will send an email out either way as soon as she knows anything on the Thor boot.

    Thanks for the update. I'm thinking 2015 is probably a good estimate for when we can expect it

    This boot is deserving of an MTO

    "... they are the Black Pct boot from Moulded shoe on the Modified Last. I had them resoled by Nick at B. Nelson shoes to duplicate as close as possible the RRL Madison boot sold at the Grand Opening of the London RRL store...I think they came out pretty good..."

    Any updates? I think it's been 3 months since the last checkin with Kathy. I doubt there's any news or we would have heard.

    Kathy emailed me this morning with an update, nothing new. Alden hasn't confirmed the order yet. Kathy will let me know if anything changes & I will keep everyone posted as soon as I know anything more.

    Thanks for the update. I'm going to try and forget about this, so that if Alden confirms this a year from now (with another 2 years for production), it will just be a nice surprise!

    UPDATE ON THOR BOOT, KIND OF:

    Talked to Kathy Flynn today & no update. Kathy said Alden has no word on when the needed Cigar would be available.

    I realize that this MTO has dragged on & if anyone has changed their mind and wants to pull out please send me a PM. The main concern of Kathy was the size of the Thor order, thirty eight pair of cigar shell boots. That is a large MTO for Alden with cigar being in demand, other than that Kathy didn't think the order would be a problem getting confirmed by Alden for the design is tasteful one.

    On another note, I proposed the idea of a non shell MTO in suede or CXL and Kathy was receptive to the idea. If anyone want to propose a CXL or suede shoe or boot MTO and we can get a consensus this idea could move forward. I look forward to see if there's an interest in a non shell MTO.

    Again if you ever need to contact me in regards to the Thor boot to see where we are feel free. Kathy will contact me if there's any update, but I'll probably check in every six months with her.

    I like the idea of a fall suede boot. Really any pattern (Indy, wingtip, captoe, etc), in snuff or even the dark brown and on commando soles. I'm very flexible on lasts and styles. Commando sole would be very ideal though given Alden doesn't do dainite (I wouldn't mind crepe but its too controversial for an MTO).
