    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.


    Speaking of prices increases I'm glad I ordered a few pairs of Aldens through North River before the jump.

    Also, North River gives me the choice to get the Indy Boot in 6 C, but a merchant told me that size 6 can only be in D width. Just wondering if anyone has any thoughts on this.

    Holy crap that is a big jump in price for the Indy's at North River, $60-$70. Even the Unlined Chukka is $400 now. Damn!

    All Shell PTBs are on the Barrie - unless you get a custom order.

    Anyone ever heard of the "Arch Street" last?

    I just picked up a pair of NOS tan wingtips on the Arch Street last, both because they looked good AND out of curiosity, as I've never heard of that last. Google searches don't yield much info.


    For reference, here they are:


    Sorry for bad iPhone pics.

    Hey guys,

    Got a new special make-up in:
    [​IMG]

    Unlined Navy Suede "Perkins" Chukka: $425


    It's on the Leydon last with a Flex Welt sole. It's the same construction and specs as their snuff & tan unlined chukka's, but done in a really handsome muted navy.
