    Alden of Carmel also carries the whiskey LWB. Email Adam for sizes available. Or there's a pair of seconds listed on the Web site in 11D, if I recall correctly. Adam can tell you what makes them seconds, but whatever it is is likely to be very minor.

    Thanks guys. I'm 8.5D. I'll try madison ave first, as I'm in CA and would like to avoid paying sales tax (not to avoid paying my fair share per se, it's just that Jerry et al in Sac. tend to wildly misappropriate that 10%)

    Looking at all the beautiful make ups on the thread makes me sad I didn't pick up the shell PTB's at Tom Austin. But, someone else can enjoy them, I have plenty of shoes. Wow, the prices are getting scary. The phrase, "You get what you pay for", is very true when it comes to these great shoes at least.

    The stock at NYC is pretty limited. I actually pre-paid a pair in my size... last year. I have a feeling that they will not get them until spring/summer next year. If no one has placed a deposit, and you really want the shoes, it might be worth forking over to hold your size.

    alden sf told me that the cigar indys were on true balance, but its not surprising if its on barrie since most of their shoes are barrie.
