    I got in on the order seeing as how a whiskey Naval is a grail of mine (it's basically a Naval makeup just with a storm welt). I definitely wasn't on the top of the list as I got the plaza cigar WTB from them in December.

    I wonder if some were turned off by the image in the email. It was the crappiest looking whiskey I had ever seen. Once I looked past their inability to photo-shop, I quickly realized that this was going to be a pretty cool make. Whiskey, barrie, per cap is for me, a perfect casual boot.

    I don’t know how they are running that list anymore. I had a wishlist, I contacted them to add me to more of the makeups etc but doesn’t seem to have made a difference. This one doesn’t bother me as I would have passed but still. Certainly doesn’t help being an E width so if they are all D runs I’m up the creek anyway. At this point I have enough shoes that missing out isn’t killing me. Plus having some still unworn rare shell leaves me to believe I maybe have too many already.

    Thanks, 3 packages in the freezer for quick easy meals! And didn't spill anything on the Shell Jumpers!

    Question.

    Interested in sending back a pair of cordovan tassel loafers back to Alden for a refurbishment. Has anyone gone this route? Pleased?

    Thoughts or comments welcomed.

    Agreed on both parts. Although, perhaps some of it could be explained by a decreased demand for rare shell?

    I was initially inclined to buy these, but the side panel stitching without the perforations throws it off IMO. I believe I was on the third round of invitees offered to purchase this models so I suppose they are just going down a list.

    Thank you for the details. It's an awesome, awesome boot. It interests me to see photos from Brooks Brothers displays from days of yore only to see now that their Alden offering is near nil. I was told Alden was going to parting ways with BB soon.

    Thank you! They are so sleek and classy looking. Not a style we see here much. I think I need to do that. The left shoe is persistently stiff. Where do you try to bend, the toe or the heel?

    I have never sent anything back but have seen their work done. It's top notch and will do a bang up job. They should also replace the tassels as well to make things look extra spiffy.

    How trashed are they?
