    Maybe also include past and latest deliveries to get an idea of turnaround time? I know its more of less a complete crapshoot but it might be an interesting stat.

    Cool idea.
    For exotics, I've always wanted to know how many pairs were made per run.

    I'd guess that will be hard to reliably know, and some retailers will be very tight with the information...

    Hi guys,

    Got sent pics of my preorder 975's which unfortunately had a small tear. Do you think it'll be an issue in the future (keep for discount) or should I pass on these? Thanks!

    Well I'm super excited, because today I got my Snuff WTB's from Yenni! They look great and they are extremely well-finished.

    The finished areas of the welt look great - the pix are harsher than the reality...

    Was in NYC for a few days, stopped in at CitiShoes, Alden Madison, and Leffot. All great shops, all pretty different.

    Managed to avoid buying any more Aldens, as I just took delivery of "Bristol" black shell boots and "Cooney" snuff suede PCT boots from Leffot. I did end up ordering a pair of burgundy shell Galways, which will be my first pair from EG...whoops.

    In terms of rare shell, CitiShoes had a few cap toe balmorals in Cigar left over (only really small and large sizes, like 7 and 13), AoM had nothing, and Leffot had nothing (except the Whiskey tankers that came in, which I got to see, but they were all pre-sold).

    Definitely worth the visit when in New York.

    Those most likely should be 2nds. This my 975s that have a small cut on the eyestay. They're Irregulars. [​IMG]

    Damn. I'll be in nyc later this week and was hoping i might run into something off chance at AoM haha. That's fine though, I was planning on getting some 990s to round out my 'classic' Alden collection in the stable.
