    Sounds like a good option to go with my work uniform

    The Plaza last doesn't do much for me. The Leydon last is pretty sleek if that's the look you want. I like the Barrie for overall shape and comfort. I have no experience with the Modified or Grant last . . . yet.

    I was told "it could be a few months" when I called but I got the sense the customer service lady was not sure herself.



    Please report back what Ed says after you call. 8-12 months is a long time to wait, but it is a very unique makeup. I don't mind a long wait but if I know the rough timeline I can better pace myself.

    8-12 months isn't terrible. Custom knives are worse--I've been waiting since October 2010 for one, and it could be another year or two for all I know. I know guys that have been waiting over four years.

    The same reason folks buy expensive shoes and watches. People collect them.

    Just as an FYI and for confirmation, new makeups are taking 18 months from order placement till delivery. Previously made models can take a few months shorter. This does not include #4, whiskey, ravello, and cigar, which depends on availability and order queue.

    Thanks! Got them 2 wks ago at Alden SF, they had limited sizes at the time, and I'm fairly certain they're sold out. Shoemart, however, has some limited stock in LHS, Wingtip boot and chukka.
