    I got them cropped super high, so that length is accurate. The opening is 15"

    That is insane for a pair of suede LWBs. You are right that that makeup should be pretty standard.

    After the delay with the Epaulet Brixton (though I am in on the whiskey order and not the Ravello) I too am done with Alden pre-orders with any retailer except for Leffot. It seems like when Leffot does a pre-order they have already confirmed the makeup so the wait times are not nearly as long (I waited only about 4 months for my saddle shoes and naval boot this spring).

    ^^ With the exception of a color 8 boot from JGilbert, I have never participated in an Alden pre-order. That said, I have a lot of exotic shell models. There is hope.

    The suede LWB delay is a head scratcher.
