Don’t mean to disparage AoL so much- I was really interested in that project. Do you have any photos of your cafe racer? I was curious how the horween would turn out, and how the thickness would end up.

Michael- I posted pics a couple of months ago- I believe you can find them on page 37 of this thread. I was very pleased with the product, the jacket was delayed a couple of months due to the pandemic related supply issues which was not AOLs fault. The sleeves are a bit long but that's on me with my alligator arms. I've only worn it a couple of times before the sunny warm SoCal weather established itself so I'm really looking forward to breaking it in more this winter.- meanwhile I have it hung up in my hallway and I walk by it everyday to smell the intoxicating chromexcel!

I think it should be clear that I was not "Handwelted", despite stephenaf2003 accusing me for no conceivable reason. The closed accounts are an encouraging response, but shouldn't it be acknowledged that a sponsor was responsible for one of those? If it's being addressed privately I'm willing to remove this comment.
:lol:

Has anyone else experienced long delays of product shipment? I ordered the shell cordovan Goodyear sneaker back in April with original estimated delivery date of May/June. Every month, the estimated delivery time has slipped to the following month with it now being September and still no delivery. Per Archibald, it seems they are having vendor and supply management issues. Not sure if it is isolated to this product or across their entire supply chain. I will say Archibald has always been quick to respond to my inquiries, but the slow delivery is very aggravating.

Hi Kreo (and everyone),

I’m part of the Archibald family, and I’d be happy to address this topic for you! I’m looking forward to answering some of these questions and responding to comments and feedback in the future.

I apologize for the aggravation as we understand your frustration completely. This is actually a great time to update everyone these units are finally clearing customs and arriving. Anyone located in Europe should be receiving a tracking notification any day! We’re receiving everything by Thursday at the latest and will be turning them around to all of our customers with outstanding orders immediately.

That being said, there was a longer than normal production delay with our latest sneakers for several reasons that managed to all coincide. First to note, we moved production to a new craftsman and it took time to develop this style with them (and ameliorate the former version). Second, we had some residual rolling lockdown issues that impacted both production and delays with several required materials. Third, the shoes were separated into two batches for shipping (also a partial consequence of lockdowns and delays). While one batch was crafted and shipped before Ferragosto (our fourth hitch), the second batch was delayed until after this Italian holiday concluded. Consequently, we lost several weeks during this time period. Finally, we experienced an extreme holdup with customs that pushed our delivery out even further. We've been checking on a daily basis and have finally been informed our shipment will be released within the next 48 hours! As everyone may or may not be aware, customs delays can vary from several days to weeks due to a variety of reasons that are not within our control.

We’re very happy to note we’ve had incredibly positive feedback from the first batch and can’t wait for everyone else to receive their outstanding pairs!

More updates to come soon. Thanks everyone
