    I'm actually a 9.5d-10D 'tweener in Barrie. 10D in Tremont and Plaza are perfect for me. 10D in aberdeen is a little too snug and 10.5D is too big (I'm probably 10E). Thanks DV. I'll keep these in mind, but I have my sights set on a different ebay target.

    I believe J Gilbert currently has a pre-order for a tan suede version on single leather sole. Contact Yenni and see if they still have any openings

    Stopped at shoemart this morning - just got in a bunch of whiskey and cigar seconds (15 pairs).

    They had 3 in my size 10.5d.

    $450


    Call or stop by before the email goes out Tuesday

    Where could TSM possibly be getting new stock of 2nds for Whiskey and Cigar? I don't think any retailers have been rolling out new Whiskey or Cigar models recently. Unless this is from a brand new batch, and some stores will have some new runs coming soon.

    Maybe it's because it's Saturday or because I didn't speak with Joe, but I just gave TSM a shout and they said I'd have to wait for the seconds email to go out. Not what I wanted to hear, but at least she was pleasant about it.

    So I just called the store and spoke to one of the sales guys - I got my hands on a Cigar NST on Barrie in 10D for $450. The curious thing is that I asked what the defect was that made this a second and he told me "these aren't seconds - they are closeouts. They are perfect brand new shoes." Color me skeptical, but I have no reason to doubt his word. We will see when they arrive. It is interesting that they are more expensive than the normal seconds price.

    Folks should definitely call the store directly, not the 800 number. He told me he had boots in rare colors in larger sizes 11+ for the same price. Good luck.

    Update...I called the retail number and got through. They got 20 or so pairs in. Various styles and colors. I snagged the last pair of 10s, but they have a number of cigar and ravellos in 10.5. I didn't ask about other sizes. I was told they are seconds, but that they looked through all of them and I wouldn't be disappointed (so basically they could pass as firsts). Price is $460 shipped. Good luck!

    Took me 12 times to get through and all they would do is send me an email. There weren't any exotics to be found. However it's possible everything isn't on the list.

    You have to call the Norwalk retail store, not the 800 number. Ask for Ed. Also, they only have sizes 10.5 and larger left. I was too late calling for my size...

    Thanks for the heads up. I called and nothing available in rare shell colors in size 13 or 14. It was still thrilling to go fishing, but got skunked! I did score several pairs of Rancourts on the BB Corporate sale this week!

    See Ya,
    Steve
