    I think he was referring to TSM seconds inventory.

    nephew,
    go with the method on the two eyelet chukkas to ascertain that the fit works for you. if the fit works for you, you should, keep the ravello chukkas. it is more versatile then the whiskey ptb

    Right - how does TSM sell made-for-JCrew boots...?

    Exactly. I've seen just about all of the J Crew make ups on the seconds shelves at one time or another.

    On the main sales floor they have a new black calf chukka with the contrasting antiqued edge trim that looked very nice!

    nephew,
    as i said in the prior post keep the chukkas if they fit properly. the exotic colors are difficult to get, i would also keep the whiskey if it makes sense to you

    I'm guessing the shoes didn't pass factory inspection and were never sold to J Crew, ending up at TSM

    All of Alden's seconds are sold through TSM. They get every pair of Alden's seconds from any of the other makeups that are done for other vendors. For example, they will get seconds for Leather Soul, Epaulet, Brooks Brothers, etc. TSM's store in CT has a whole section of seconds on display and (when I was there at least) there are many more in the back.

    Love the dark brown model. Never seen that color before in an Alden.

    Thanks for the advice uncle. I'll be trying them on tonight and will take it from there. If I end up keeping the ravello chukkas instead of the whiskey PTBs, I think for whiskey my next preference would be LHS.

    Thank you both for the clarification. That's freaking amazing.

    I've emailed TSM in the past to get their 2nds list, but to no avail - never a response nor 2nds emails. Would anyone care to forward me various listings, or would it be best to just try to call TSM directly?

    I'm all about the 2nds.

    There is a signup form to get the emails from their crm... can't find the link right now but someone else may have it. I'm pretty sure it is in this thread somewhere.
