    Headed to NYC in 4 weeks. Planning on AOM and Citi. Both a couple blocks from the hotel. Hoping to get sized up on B & C width @ AOM and maybe in on a pre-order for something.

    I got a spot for the cigar indys as well. Been wanting a pair for years. Now all I need is a spot for whiskey indys and I'm good.

    Looks more like a small cut that polish would fix. If its a small surface cut...not likely to get worse. If its a tear...pass on them.

    Great pairing with those pants.

    I'm on the list but I guess I didn't get a spot this time around. Oh well

    Thanks for the advice fellas. I thought I wrote cut instead of tear (don't know how that happened!). More pics just in case.

    You never know what?

    Those are Whiskey PTBs for 14oz, you can see it written on the heel pad. Several European vendors run Whiskey PTBs and/or LWBs, including 14 oz. They just included the aldenmadison username mention because Alden doesn't have an Instagram of itsown.

    While not readily available, I would not keep those with that cut. That makeup pops up a couple times a year at least.

    At the end of the day...this is your call. The discount would need to be at least $150 for me to keep.
    These do pop up fairly often so it's your call.
    I do think with the right treatment that "nick" is a small surface cut that could be glued down
    then polished and might not be visible. I do not think there is any risk of tearing or getting worse.
    Get the discount that makes you comfortable or a replacement pir and roll from there.

    I would try to get to Leffot to see what they have to offer as well.
    You never know what you'll find.
