    I got cancelled for both the #4 Wingtip and Captoe boots. And I paid in full for both in advance. To their credit, they did refund me promptly once I was told the bad news (after sitting on my payment for the past seven months).

    Is anyone aware of a retailer that has an NST with a 360 degree welt like this?

    I've only seen such a welt on NST boots. Apparently these were purchased from Leather Soul.

    That's great they gave you your money back but to sit on that money (and that of everyone else who put down on a pair) for half a year is kind of ridiculous.
    How can they ask for all that money upfront, and with no guarantee to deliver the goods. Does anyone know if alden asks for cash upfront form retailers like shoemart prior to their placing a big order?
    i feel Like everyone who participated in the preorder effectively gave the shoemart a short-term loan with no interest.

    I think he offered? I didn't pay upfront for my #4 boots and they charged my card when it shipped

    What should I go with for my first pair of Alden's?

    -LWB, Barrie last in #8 cordovan

    Or

    -NST, Aberdeen last in #8 cordovan

    Was totally set in the longwings until I saw the split toes in the NYC shop. Opinions?
