I would just go for shell if I could ever get near anything other than clr 8 or black.
I'm having a tough time justifying a 7th pair of clr 8 or a 6th pair of black.
I get the shell shortage thing but I've reached the end of the line with clr 8.
Recent visits to Alden SF and AOM have resulted in no leads on cigar let alone
ravello. The reception my inquiry received was frosty to say the least.
I don't know how some of you do it.
That being said I did get on the list for the clr 8 Citishoes tankers.
its an abusive relationship.
Apparently, mdubs raises his on horses. The rest of us beg, steal, and borrow.
Hey guys, figured this is ok to post because I'm willing to take a reasonable loss. Returned j crew Indys and have a 400 dollar gift card that I won't be using
Let me know if anybody is interested! We're the only people that probably regularly spend that amount of money at jcrew haha
Mine are on their way. When they arrive I'll take some shots for everyone.
But we wanna see em NOW!!!
You and me both!! The only point of reference I have is that terrible Instagram picture they posted...but that was enough for me to pull the trigger.
These pics are bad also but they're the best I can do
If you've been in the Alden shell game long enough you know it goes in cycles. 2014 and early 2015 saw many rare colors delivered. Prior to that we saw a pretty good drought in the 2013 timeframe. I've seen signs of things getting better soon...at least for whiskey shell. Unless you just get lucky...making multiple calls to key dealers and doing follow up will get you on lists. I'm on multiple lists, and prepaid on Ravello WTB that are way past due. Scoring rare colors is not for those who are not patient. Even then most runs are 12-18 pairs at most. You have to commit in minutes when slots open. Even the big time players lose out because they're in a meeting when the calls come.
Hang in there...I think it will get better this year. At least you will see some new rare colors get posted here.
Looks like the CitiTanker has all eyelets. What an awesome makeup. Wish I had known about it.
Has anyone ran a Captoe Plaza #8 in the past? I'd love that on commando with a flat antique welt.
I'm not sure if the makeup you've mentioned exists, but Leather Soul has done the Plaza Cap Toe Boot in #8, although with a leather sole and a normal, dark welt.
I know there was a Commando soled version of the #8 Plaza Cap Toe Boot (with a dark welt) - I think @NAMOR has it and @Girardian had a pair. Maybe they can shed some light on which vendor offered it. I suspect it was J.Gilbert.
I think that's right - J.Gilbert.
