    Exactly. Still I don't find their shells that much desirable (it's only my preferences though), and many of them are now only available in 'extreme' sizes.
    Will order their Navy Suede PTB if available in my size.
    Also, they seem to have a quite interesting MTO service.

    i don't know for sure, but last time i was in the store i asked the SA if they expected more alden makeups and he said he didn't think so. also, alden of carmel no longer lists products from blackbird like they used to. i'm assuming the 18 month lead time is just more trouble than it's worth for some smaller stores.

    Just got the Shoemart irregular lists. Showing a Ravello wingtip boot in size 9.5D for $399.99.

    Also, see some Whiskey shell LWB's and Ravello and Black shell saddles in 9.5D also $399.99.

    Wow I'd jump on that if it's your size! (Assuming the irregularity isn't a missing sole lol)

    I'd be amazed if they actually had it. Last time I got the seconds list I had to go with my third choice since they said the inventory isn't always accurate and didn't have my first two choices on the list.

    Jeez. Signed up for seconds list three times. Only gotten the list once. Anyone have the 8.5D or 9D list?

    SNUFF SUEDE: This material looks so appealing I want to eat it.

    I'm aware of the unlined chukka, LHS/PTB/LWB and perforated boot (TSM).

    Any other good models/manufacturers, even outside of Alden? Your fave snuff shoe?

    FYI, Blackbird is done with Alden, except the black calf wingtip in 12D. [​IMG]

    I would suggest you speak to Ed at TSM before pulling the trigger. Some seconds have far more problems than just cosmetic blemishes. But good luck to the lucky buyer!!
