    Damn. Thanks for the answers guys. For some reason my speed hooks made two holes in my laces.

    My order for the Ralston George Boot in reverse chamois arrived today. Beautiful leather, the only problem was the strap that holds the buckle came undone. So it's back to UnionMade. Made me cry manly tears!

    I have the Tanker boot in cordovan 8 on the Barrie last and I fill out the width fine- I definitely don't want a C width.

    I have had speed hooks rip the normal cotton (or whatever fabric they are) Indy boot laces, but I've never had an issue with the flax waxed laces.

    Any Aldens on sale this Black Friday?

    JCrew has a 25% off sale, but Aldens are excluded.

    ^I'm going to guess inventory system error of some sort. Very odd that they'd have even this limited stock in when they just cancelled all the preorders, but someone needs to buy a pair to find out, right.:)

    why couldnt it be a 9D?!

    also think this is an error since they cancelled my color 4 wingtip order but hoping that its true for those that can get them. (maybe its just jealousy)

    guys - i called SM. The woman on the phone said they did indeed get a few pairs, even after Alden cancelled the order.

    Jump on it. Hope the orders go through !

    ^ It's NOT an error. I spoke to them and got a physical stock check. I'm not so dumb as to make any assumptions. I had my order cancelled by TSM as well, only to see these pairs miraculously pop up.

    Beebs, you are the best!! I had my order canceled as well and I just jumped on it. Let's see if it works out.

    Might be an early Xmas present. Ha.
