    may have something to do with the fact their common practice was to state an item was in stock, charge your CC right away, give you variable shipping dates that were never fulfilled and then deliver the shoes 2 months later.

    There is this text:

    "Please contact us Toll-Free at (888) 676-4932 if you are interested in Alden Limited Edition Shoes. We currently have numerous models available or in production. These include: Indy Boot in Color 8 , Plain Toe Blucher Oxford in Natural Chromexcel, Chukka Boot in Color 8 and Black, Handsewn Cordovan Penny Loafer in Cigar, and Norwegian Front Blucher Oxford in Color 8. These models are not typically stocked at Alden and often difficult to obtain."

    Of course, I was unaware that shell chukkas and the #8 NST were limited editions that are difficult to obtain... Who knows. Hopefully people will get what they want and get the discount. :)

    Ugh, everything tells me not to order from them, but I'm tempted to try to order a cigar LHS. The code JACKET puts them at $469, similar to the Shoe Mart "discount" from a few weeks ago.
