    Good use of a crepe sole here - weather resistant leather, stylish broguing, crepe sole. Good shoe for wet cool, wet conditions, nice for fall.

    I got in on a preorder model from JGilbert one time because they had ordered extra pairs in my size.

    I got on the second order in Oct. of 2011. When that order went in it was said to expect a late fall 2012 delivery. I think there was a third order as well that went in early 2012. Of course the wait times could change drastically.

    FWIW, some ravello seems to be creeping out of the Alden factory. A bunch of stores seem to have restocked some models. I just ordered some ravello chukkas from the Shoe Mart, they had been out of that model before.

    FWIW It probably can't hurt to try and get on a waitlist now if possible. Over the summer JGilbert received an order of Cigar Indys that was already pre-subscribed. Since they were already sold out I was added to the list for their next pre-order which hadn't even been accepted by Alden yet. A few weeks later I received a call from Yenni at JGilbert that someone backed out of their Cigar Indy order and since I was first on the pre-order list for that size she offered them to me. I got lucky and I'm $700+ poorer now....

    Speaking of Alden DC, some of you may recall there was an individual representing them here inviting members to PM him to be added to a mailing list.

    Has anyone received anything yet?

    Trying to decide between the J Crew #8 Cap Toe boot and the #8 Wingtip Boot (both with double leather sole). Any thoughts? If it helps, I do have color LWB.

    Just trying to see if there is interest among my Alden brethren in a brand new pair of burgundy shell captoe boots from C&J:

    http://www.brooksbrothers.com/IWCat...=BURGUNDY&sort_by=&sectioncolor=&sectionsize=

    They retail for $998, but I am willing to sell for less. Size 10D, and the consensus is they fit TTS. They are beautiful and well constructed (Dainite sole, which I actually prefer over the commando sole). If no interest I am returning them. The fit for my foot just isn't quite right.

    PM me.

    I'll take the over on this one. Watching the listing to see what they go for. I could wear these, but I don't want to get involved in paying way too much for them.

    Agreed - that boot will likely sell well above retail

    They probably don't even have a mailing list together yet. When I was in a couple weeks ago they were showing me how they had to transcribe by hand onto paper every e-mail address submitted and then will have to type them into their e-mail system. No copy and paste possible for some reason. So, it may yet be a while.
