    I believe from some of his posts that he is an accountant (or maybe a CFO or controller or something). I remember he sort of disappeared back around the end of the fiscal year and he's probably a bit busy again right now too.

    Great shoe.

    I acquired this ravello model from TSM about a month ago. I like it even more than I thought I would.

    Is it really $900 to the US? Are you sure 900 doesn't include VAT that you would not be subject to? I think you might actually be at $716 before shipping and potential duties.

    My boots from them were approximately $821 USD with shipping to US (customs fees not included)

    What'd they charge for shipping? 25 euros right? I think under the current exchange rate they'd be ~$750 shipped (no customs)

    How am I supposed to sleep tonight?!!

    Plus, my wife is already sick of the Alden obsession, rolling her eyes that the first thing I wanted to do tonight was to get the alpine grains off so i could vigorously brush the heck out of them after getting caught in this ice storm tonight.

    SRSLY, if you can afford them and want them, you'd be a fool not to get them now.
    You're only looking at around $750 shipped with at worst a $25 fedex fee and perhaps a fight to get the duty charges back that they shouldn't have charged for us made goods.
    It's not like plaza last Indys are widely available.

    Every retailer seems to have an issue


    Neither shoes are bargains but lobbs can be had for just a little over alden calf prices which is pretty attractive

    my experience with AofC: I was on a pre order for a boot for about a year (2010). I went back and forth on my size a few times, which Adam was very accommodating on.

    When the boots finally came in Adam told me they had a defect. He wouldn't take a pic of the defect for me and wouldn't let me return the boots if I took delivery. I found that odd.

    I finally ordered a different boot which, although my usual size, didn't fit correctly. He did let me return them for a full refund.

    After that, he told me no more returns. I never ordered again. Oh well.

    Also found it really odd that he would never speak on the phone.

    Yeah! I tried to purchase a pair of shoes from Alden of Carmel. After dealing (only in e-mail) and feeling like I was the seller (I kept asking myself if I was buying or selling because I was so confused), I decided they didn't want me as a customer and I didn't need them as a vendor. A of C is not somehting I need on my destination map.
