Talk about demographics and covid is an easy way to avoid discussion of inadequate worker compensation and working conditions. These analyses would have you believe supply-n-demand should only apply to goods.
Sorry, that's my day job. I am a union lawyer. What union are you a member of?

I think a lot of it is the executives see they are making good money with less people and there is still doubt of another downturn/lockdown. Until executives are comfortable with the market they won't hire more people. COVID lockdowns and people refusing to vaccinate causing further surges on hospitals really is the main reason for this crap.

This is definitely what a bst thread is for…economic discussion and political bickering. By the way, still looking for reverse earth chamois Indy 8.5D. Creating some demand here if anyone wants to sell :)
I asked an honest question because he is saying they are not expecting any Alden hand made for the entirety of 2022! There was absolutely nothing political in the way I asked it. I hate how people try to infer politics when they aren't even being discussed. It's gaslighting. I'm not criticizing you, I'm just pointing out how touchy people are and how quick they want to draw battle lines and get all defensive and up on their soap boxes. I hate politicians period. You won't find me getting into that political nonsense.

I felt like he was saying that in response to the comments after yours rather than what you asked

My sizing mistake will hopefully make somebody else happy. Been meaning to list these for a couple years, but they just sat in the back of my closet waiting for my feet to shrink. These are from Frans Boone and I believe they said they were the last run of brass eyelets from Alden

Model: 4060
Straight cap-toe
#8 Shell Cordovan
Last: Grant
Size: US 7D
Price: $480

these are firsts, will be shipped in their plastic bags in their Alden box with the shoe bags. I wore them twice before deciding they were just too small, so there is some minor wear on the soles from walking around outside. See below, can take more pictures on request

OK guys, I've decided to empty out the closet to make room for some new stuff. ANY shoe or boot I have posted on the Alden thread (well except for a few) is going up for sale for $225 shipped CONUS. PM me and see if available, all are 8.5D.
I am not going to post pix of everything, as you all know what I wear.
