    Hey guys GQ had this article on J.Crew's new shop. However the bottom of the article there is a small Q&A with Floyd Gilmore of Alden. He says in the article that if you wish to be a new Alden retailer that the lead time to get the STANDARD line of shoes will not be until 2014...if youre lucky!?!

    Demand is nuts...

    That whole bit about being over-sold boggles my mind in this day and age. I realize that its a labor and time-intensive process, but c'mon...

    Thanks! I bought them several years back on clearance from Plain Clothes in Birmingham. They had done a special run of them. I know other stores have also ordered the same or similar makeups at different times. Surely someone, probably a Southern shop somewhere, will have them this spring. I think there is a shop in Charleston that has carried them in the past (not Ben Silver).

    How wide is the Grant last? From the sizing chart it's right in the middle and I have wider feet. Should I go Barrie size or normal size?

    From my experience, the Grant is narrower in the toe box. I'm a 8.5D in Barrie and 9D in Grant although I probably could have went 8.5D in Grant but didn't have a chance to try them.

    Hi guys. I really like the Leffot Gatby shoe. But with no credit I will have to sell some sweaters and probably my adidas collection (which I don't wear anymore) of forest hills and such. Should I do it? Or do you think there will be some other, better version, out this spring?

    Question: Do I need Ravello, and if so, what shoe?

    I have Whiskey LWBs, Cigar chukkas, PTB #8s, and black shell captoe bals. As Whiskey ages, it darkens. Would it be too close to Ravello? When would I wear Ravello that I wouldn't wear either Whiskey or Cigar?

    I know I'm missing a LHS, but I can't wear the Van Last, so that's an impossibility.

    Thoughts?

    I don't think this has been answered yet. In reply to your query, the chinos are from Epaulet. Just be careful before you proceed- the Epaulet stuff has proven itself as addictive as shell, at least to me it has. I can't seem to post links, so you'll have to dig them up yourself: there's a SF thread dedicated to Epaulet - search "epaulet shop" and from there you should be able to navigate to the store's site. Good luck.
