    NICE MAN! Congrats! Even though they are seconds, they'll be awesome.

    I would have been all over them if they were an E width

    Be sure to post pics!!!:slayer:

    Did they say what the issue was with that specific pair?

    nice pickup speekez....I got the same TSM Seconds emails as last time, I don't think there was anything new on any of the size 12 or 12.5 lists that I got, just the same crap that's been sitting there forever.

    Saw those cigars in person and they looked very good. Tried them on, but the Plaza doesn't work for me. Enjoy!

    It hurts cuz there is some truth to it. A bunch of us have been burnt before. For what it's worth, I think you will get your pair because it appears to be a recent addition. I'm a 11-5/12 and ive seen identical lists for months now.

    Of course, one day after I buy color 8 LHS for full retail, there is a pair on the irregulars list.

    ^ Not necessarily. A #8 indy has been in 9D list for some time, but every time I asked they said it was not available.

    Note that a lot of the irregulars do have significant flaws. I've even heard of someone receiving a pair where the shape/size between the right and left shoes were different.

    So, you do take some risk in buying an irregular.

    Yeah, but with TSM's rather liberal return policy, you're risking like ten bucks or something. well worth it, in my mind. I purchased one pair of seconds from them and I had to look several minutes to find it. There was one very slight wrinkle on the vamp that I would not have questioned in a first quality shoe.

    I kind of feel like the 2nds list is like Volkswagen/Audi cars - everyone I know that drives one has had no major issues, but there tend to be a lot of people who say that Volkswagen/Audi cars are all lemons, will instantly catch on fire, and will kill your family.

    Thanks, guys. I picked up the J Crew barrie cap-toe boot #8 from the style mart seconds list a few months ago. Turned out nicely. (the inseam panel was slightly lighter than the rest) Hopefully with the cigars it'll only be a slight color variation or some edge dressing. CAN'T WAIT

    Not exactly. The shipping to you is $10. Then if you need to make a return, the return shipping is $7.99 so you would be out $17.99.

    If any Alden fans in the LA area want to grab a beer tomorrow night, we'll be at the Fat Dog on Fairfax around 7pm. :cheers:

    I grabbed the pair of Chromexcel tassel loafers in 10D on the Aberdeen. They're probably going to go back, so PM me if interested. I took a flyer because I thought the Chromexcel was sort of a wack-a-doo combo with that style and last. I think they might have looked better in natural, but we'll see.
