    Does anyone have the comprehensive listing of Color 4 make-ups released in the U.S. in the past 5 or so years?

    I know TSM has 2 boots (WT and captoe). Presumably there are other "regulars" to the extent you can use this term with Color 4? Is there a PTB by chance?

    Just trying to predetermine which make-up I'm going to try and wait for...

    (There's no need to tell me to "just get any color 4 that's released, since it's so rare," as I know full well the paucity of this color.)

    Funny, I was just looking at some notes I made to myself and it said "Alden #4 Cap Toe, July 2012"

    Heh ! So much for that.

    Let's start the countdown to May 2013.

    Now about those Ravello Captoe MTO with Leffot....

    I agree that the 974 is underrated. I wear mine a lot, since I find the LWB too heavy for my use or taste. Tried the Brooks model on single sole; Maria at BB NYC said they were on the Snap Last, however... I went with the 974.

    This is what I mean by some BB workers knowing precious little about Alden shoes ....

    Nice pic of the 974. It's also worth noting it is built like a tank in terms of durability. :nodding:
