You should have contacted Dastig when the sale started.
Thought Ezra said they would be? Though they didn't have any lindricks when I checked
Why would they? Private sale is usually better than public one
Fraiche, stfu already.
still haven't gotten mine yet because of the hurricane. I went TTS 9.5 on the marlow wingtips...hope they work out. If not I'll have to somehow locate a 9
Is he Robert at the Chicago store? I sent him an email on Oct. 26 when all this was getting started but never got a reply. After I called my local store, I figured I hadn't heard back because the ones I wanted weren't on sale.
Bingo, that's unfortunate. I would shoot him another email and see if he can do anything about that. I think this all started on the 25th, but when he called me I was already the 8th pair of shoes he ordered for a forum member. The 26th might have even been too late.
I received a pair of the wingtips yesterday and they are gorgeous. I almost went with the penny loafers, and I probably would have if they were not full strap. Even still, I kind of wish I had ordered the penny loafers as well to see them in person.
Anyway, the wingtips seem to fit pretty well, though the soles are very stiff, which makes it difficult to assess fit. I'll try to post pics this weekend.
Overdue cross post from a year ago, but seeing this year's batch of Lindrick's owners joining the club tickled me to revisit my "just got 'em!" post from last year:
Such a great boot. Congrats to everyone who jumped on the great deal. One of the most comfortable shoe/clothes purchases you'll make
I almost jumped. But then... a Vass that fit.
fora members are single-handedly driving the price of horse arse to the roof....
Popped my cherry with the short wing and loafers last year. Boots this year.
My Lindricks arrived Wed. and are getting their 1st wear today.
I'd really appreciate it if anyone who has experience with both the Lindrick wingtip boots and Marlow wingtips posted comments on their preference for one over the other, and why.
Marlow = beauty; great deal with 40+15 discount...
Lindrick = gorgeous; even greater deal with 40+15 discount...
