    I was looking for the seconds list daily but after getting confirmation on a lefott order this week, think I need to turn away from Alden for a couple of months :)

    I recently bought a pair of Snuff Suede Chukkas and was wondering if I should use a tree in them?

    I think I might actually nab a pair of boots from the seconds list if they have cap toes or wingtips. how fast do seconds usually go?

    According to Bryan from LSBH, they do refunds if there's no other option, and obviously only if the boots in question haven't been creased up. As he put it to me, "They're not in the business of shipping boots out everywhere just to have them returned." They're much more inclined to do exchanges, but will do refunds if something just can't be worked out. That's reasonable, I suppose.

    I'm not sure that I had the best experience with Bryan, to be completely honest. I'll probably try to pick up Alden's from Epaulet in the future. Their service can't be beat, and Mike is a fantastic guy. He told me a few weeks ago that they had a Natural CXL Tanker boot with a commando sole coming in within the next few weeks or so -- definitely interested in this.

    wish they would do a u tip boot, essentially the exact same pattern but without that extra stitch down the front of the toe

    I don't really think that there's any point. I've read some conflicting experiences re: Bryan from LSBH in this thread before, both good and bad. From what I can gather, lots of people have good experiences with him, while a small group of people have ended up less than pleased. I think my problem with him was him coming across as a bit supercilious in our conversations, and I can certainly see how that sort of attitude could be traded in for a much more accommodating one if the customer in question were a bit more, erm, affluent. :embar:

    On another note, I purchased a pair of Common Projects a while ago after Bryson Higa of another LS location helped me, and he was really a great guy.

    ninja07, those are some great looking longwings.
