    You register on their site. Then you email them and ask to have access to the seconds. They will let you know when that has occurred and then you can search them.

    IMG_1038.JPG First pair .. #8 cordovan BB Tassels purchased 1978. Resoled and replaced many times throughout my life. Great shoe still.. glad I replaced my Black and 8's last year based on what I see on this thread. What a damn shame.. they are going the Italian route at BB. Alden and AE are out. I wonder how long that buyer will have his or her job.

    My first were color 8 wing tip boots from TSM, posted pics earlier today. Including that trip, every time I've gone into a store to purchase I've gone in thinking 975s and walked out with something else. I always figure the 975s will be there next time guaranteed.

    Mine were 405 Indy Boots, and they started a fall down the rabbit hole.

    My guess is tomorrow, which coincides with the price increase. I doubt they’d release over the weekend

    My first pair of Aldens were 405s in 2008. They were $315 from Shoe Mart.

    I don't know if they're still available in store, but it's probably worth checking.
    I had a pair of unlined LHS in my cart that are now showing a price of $420.
    Of course they're also showing no longer available.

    My first new aldens were the 97873 natural CXL LWB.

    Today, however, is the maiden voyage for this pair: 20190315_081104.jpg
