    Alden's prices do go up every year, about at the ending of February. They are currently implementing a MSRP as well.

    Tom - Is your soon to be Beverly Hills location the building diagonally across from Brooks Brothers? Just drove through the intersection on the way to lunch and remembered you were going to open on Santa Monica Blvd.

    That's the one! We'll be in the Writer's and Artist's Building. Our address will be 9513 Santa Monica Blvd. Parking right in the back. [​IMG]

    LeatherSOUL, I am pumped about your LA store opening! Looking forward to the suede longwings I just ordered as well.

    I didn't realize that Alden owned the San Francisco store. Do they own the NY or DC shops as well?

    I believe Alden owns the San Fran and DC stores but not NY.

    That's correct.

    Great location. As you know, location is everything.

    Your belief is correct.

    Not good news but if 20 bucks affects your ability to purchase $500 shoes then perhaps you shouldn't be buying $500 shoes.

    Never stated it affects my ability to purchase and everything is relative. Maybe your perspective in life is different than mines.

    Just thought I make a comment about slight price increases across the brand. I think now I will rather make my purchase through Carmel.

    Really tempted to pull the trigger on the unlined flex welt chukka in tan suede. I'm planning on stomping the streets and heard that the flex welt/sole is too soft and doesn't offer much support for all day wearing. Feedback from current owners will be much appreciated.

    My post on page 230 may cure you of that temptation pretty quickly.. [​IMG]
