    So I have a tip for everyone with flat waxed laces (excuse me if you have seen this before). I have been cleaning/polishing my shell over the last week and was wondering how I could get the laces somewhat flat again after wearing. Solution: I pinched the laces between two quarters and pulled the lace thru. Straightened them right out.

    Now I have a question for all of you.
    Could someone explain the why and how to use a deer bone on shell?

    NRO finally wised up... their current 25% offer isn't good on Alden (or Omersa or Church's.)

    Now if only they'd send me the Indy boots I ordered a month ago...

    I had the same experience at RL on Michigan Avenue. I dunno...you'd think they'd at least act interested when someone comes in asking about a pair of shoes that's like $950 OTD.

    They should offer the discount on "select models".

    I did a little searching with regard to the Truflare last. There is very little information on sizing except this from Namor

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/85589/the-official-alden-thread/11985#post_4291766

    And this defunct thread

    http://www.styleforum.net/t/207433/alden-truflare-last-size

    I understand the Truflare is discontinued, but I think they may still have some stock at the factory. Anyone have any experience with this last?

    **Edit**

    The #67 is still in production. All other models are discontinued.

    Hopefully it makes it less painful that they don't carry your size :)

    Actually I ordered a pair of unlined chukka in Leydon from them. Got it shipped to mailbox in around 6 days. Probably lucked out and they actually had it in stock.
