    Yeah I hear that. I actually wouldn't be surprised at all if these orders that are supposed to take 4 months end up taking 4 years. :p

    Hmm. Hopefully this means that my (inadvertent) strategy of waiting and keeping the powder dry will eventually pay off.

    I would say there is no consensus.

    For me it is:
    1. snuff
    2. dark brown
    3. tan

    1 and 2 are really close for me, with 3 off in the distance. I did not list milkshake, as I simply will not wear it. But some like it ....

    Whether they are correct or not, some think of dark brown suede as a fall/winter shoe and some think of tan suede as a spring/summer shoe. Most consider snuff a year-round color.

    welp, looks like the 11d ravello LWBs aren't gonna work.. right foot is a bit bigger than the left and is a bit too snug.

    i'm going to process the return with jcrew tomorrow, but if someone happens to be an 11d, let me know. I'd be willing to flip them at the discount that jcrew offered me, otherwise they're going back..

    Don't bet on that strategy. I'm #2 on the list for the 1 pair in my size 13D. It appears they are only getting a few pairs, and in some cases 1 size of each! I'm # 3 on the list for 12.5D Ravello LWB at the Alden in DC.

    See Ya,
    Steve

    Anyone ordered shell from TSM lately?

    If so, did you receive the no "creased vamps and marked outsoles" return policy card? The card even has example pictures.

    For some this is welcome news. For others, the exact opposite. Definitely a change in policy for TSM though.

    Mine arrived about 30 minutes ago. I would guess it is a very very recent policy.
