    The first EB boots were actually below that threshold. And I got the 2nd pair while the exchange rate was sky high in our favor, so, according to what I remember both pairs were under that threshold.

    For the record I am totally cool with Asians. That was one of the reasons why I was upset they were being taken advantage of.

    And, I am serious about moving to China.

    Thanks for the great thoughts Sir. I shouldn't have obmitted CJ, CJ is really comfy too!

    Too bad CJ requires 12 orders for GMTO and very limited customization options....

    Breaking in my new 4070s in my house... I can't wait to hit the pavement with these things.

    Too bad Alden really doesn't do them at all...

    Although I have heard grumblings from Epaulet and other regarding small run GMTO's, so, 6 to 1 half dozen to the other.

    FYI - I'm currently working with Lauren from C&J to organize a whiskey cordovan Harlech boot GMTO. It's gaining some traction.

    I'm still holding onto the whiskey wingtip boots I picked up in size 13 and have no intention of putting them on eBay. These is something odd/different however about the 379X last which makes me apprehensive, it's like walking around with huge bananas strapped on my feet. Is this last a modified true-balance or something?

    I do find the griping about 2nds resellers a bit tedious because it happens every time there's a sale. People (newbs) here miss out / are slow, and proceed to bitch about it for weeks. Isn't the free market one of the things that makes 'Merica the "greatest country on earth"?

    Also, my whiskey wingtip boots are 2nd quality, they are stamped on the sole. Color is even but the finishing is poor, not poor enough to justify Alden making them 2nds mind you, and I'm sure if they had been sold as 1st quality someone would have purchased and kept them without a hesitation.

    Too formal? Perhaps with you'd be interested in a dashingly charismatic PTB GMTO...Say black shell on danite; perfect for long evenings spent mopping tile floors. ;) (c'mon jump on the group buy!)

    She is suppose to get back to me tomorrow with some options and pricing. I'll definitely keep the thread updated.



    I think they sold in a matter of minutes from the time the email lists were dispatched.

    My friend, Indiana Jones would be very proud of your collection. You should try a pair of Shoes, they are very nice as well. The Tobacco Chamois Indy is pretty rad.


    A fantastic looking LWB from Dublin.


    Your Black Lady's are looking superb my friend. Enjoy your boots and snow!


    Looking good in your classic 990's. +1 for the Apple Argyles.


    Reppie, your Brownvellos SF are looking very terrific, good color in that photo. Your Crews were looking good as well yesterday...


    They go up a few bucks each February.


    Your Suede collection is rather impressive. Enjoy them in good health!


    Your Color 8 Tankers are looking superb my friend. Keep dry.


    @[email protected] , I knew that you would love Yenni's makeup.


    Your Cigar WT Boots are looking superb, darn, I need to get mine out.


    Your Whiskeys are looking good my friend. I love the Whiskey PTB personally, it is my favorite PTB.


    @MrVenneri , your Whiskey LWBs and CHUPs were looking great, Shockwave did not want me to quote you as it locked up Chrome twice.

    I was once told Alden sold more shoes in Japan than in the US or anywhere else in the world. That was probably five, six years ago. Not sure about now.
