    I'm also disappointed because the purchase is still listed as 'pending' on my bank account and thus the funds are not available. But I also don't think that anyone will be getting their orders - the people in customer service said that every order was being cancelled.

    You're gonna love it....I passed on the Cigar because I already had the Color 8 in my possession and the Ravello on pre-order, but it's a great boot style.

    Sure, there are other variables such as environmental factors (work vs. social event, time of year, etc.) and suit fabric. For example, a navy wool suit in winter in a conservative business setting versus a linen or cotton navy suit in summer at, say, a relative's graduation. Whiskey in the former case might raise an eyebrow, whereas in the latter case it might be the most appropriate choice.

    There are a good number of retaliers who sell Aldens.

    The Shoe Mart
    LeatherSoul
    Leffot
    Alden Of Carmel
    Frans Boone
    J Crew
    J Gilbert

    All good options.

    So did they cancel them after you called them or before? Unknown should have paid for the next day air shipping...

    well I noticed that after I ordered a pair that the stock available did not update thus some may receive while others miss out.


    Also a tracking number does not mean much until after it actually leaves the store. If shoemart ships any at all I will be surprised.

    Nyone jump on those summer Frans Boone pre-orders from their web site (you know the ones that needed to be ordered by 7/23). They are so nice, and I'm a little sad I didn't see them until late August (though my wife and wallet are not...)
