    They would have to be the most expensive things in a BR by a factor of what, 5? [​IMG]Admittedly, can't recall the last time I even saw a Banana Republic.

    This has been confirmed. Flagship stores only though. It'll be cool to try on some Aldens in person. Does the 990 come in wide sizes?

    I think Alden has decided to stop making wide sizes. And they are going to convert to the European sizing system, so we'll all have to figure out whether we're 43, 43.5, etc.

    Does the Mac method change if the sizes are now Euro? Who is working on updating the last/sizing chart?

    :(

    I just got off the phone with Leffot. My Cooney snuff suede boot preorder was cancelled as Alden is moving to one last - Barrie - for all boots, shoes and loafers... Something about having to streamline production.

    The move to China is actually a good thing and was to be expected, given that China is now buying most of the exotic shell supply.

    Word is that all MTO orders will be accepted without question, and delivery times have been cut from "Next-to-never to 2-3 weeks"
