i think after that amount of time it’s fair to ask a) how many people are on the list, and b) and what is my place on that listHas anyone been on a "confirmed" waitlist for >3 years? I've been on the Fransboone waitlist for Plaza Ravello Indys since 2014 and MrSid waitlist for Cigar Indy's since 2018. Does this really take this long?
Well it could really take that long. You are on lists for very specific make ups and there’s no saying those particular shops will ever run those make ups again. Frans Boone could have been allotted ravello multiple times since 2014 and choose to run something different. I’m not familiar with Mr Sid so I’m assuming they are a smaller shop and would get less exotics allotted to them compared to say B&M or Alden Madison.Has anyone been on a "confirmed" waitlist for >3 years?

I think crepe is the traditional sole for chukkas. They are the sole that is on Clark's desert boots, which are modeled after boots British officers used in Africa in the 30s and 40s, perhaps earlier. Those had crepe soles too.
Yea, I hear you. I like the look of the beige crepe sole. Not sure about the grey/black on mine. It's comfy and works for the time being. Maybe I'll go with the beige crepe instead of the leather sole.I think crepe is the traditional sole for chukkas. They are the sole that is on Clark's desert boots.
According to a source who would know, they’ve taken a significant hit from the downfall of JCrew.The styleforum thread seems to be slowing down a bit. I've been on for about 4-5 years...generally don't post much. Covid era makes sense, but thought folks are now wearing shoes/boots again with lockdowns ending, etc..
Would love to take a peak at Alden's financials. Curious to know if they're seeing a material decrease in retail revenue (US vs. Int'l). Well aware they do batch/large jobs on the commercial side of the biz, which I assume has not degraded significantly.

Nice write-up on your process, @Crizzlelovesyou !! Did you remove the acrylic layer prior to fading, or just let the sun break it down naturally? Love the Venice boot!Hey, I think I replied on IG too, but I faded these with no conditioning. They were dry in the vamps, but the rest of the boot was pretty okay. I actually just finished conditioning them so I'll edit this post in a sec with some pics of them post conditioning. Most of this was rotating them every few days to try and keep the fading even (which sorta worked I think) and then they did get rest indoors because we've had fairly frequent rains. Whenever I brought them inside they were brushed and that was it.

I conditioned these with tanners blend from Ashland Leather which I've been using on basically all of my horween stuff lately and then buffed them with a touch of saphir cordovan creme. The leather was dry and typically the tanners blend darkens leathers for a couple days before it lightens back up.
Let's not forget about the Epaulet Ravello Wingtip Boot waiting list from 2010...
