    If only Fransboone wasn't so in love with crepe, I'd have a couple pairs en route and id likely be done

    For what's its worth all of those orders that just got filled had been on the books for a long time from what I'm told. I know I found out about the orders being confirmed around June and got my name on the list for the PTB, they did not get any LWB in my size. I think each store got about 18 pairs. I definitely understand the frustration for those who have been waiting a long time. It's not right.

    See Ya,
    Steve

    Pretty frustrating when you think you are on a pre-order list for Ravello LWB's and two different PTB orders and somehow dont get a single pair...It is precisely these type of long waits and disappointments that have me looking at other brands and losing some of my Alden loyalty

    Most likely $730, but I believe they have been snapped up already...

    I am fairly sure back room deals take place or perhaps even worse retailers who only sell to the elite customers. I often wonder how much of a chance we actually have.

    This is the impression I got...people not selling to unknowns.

    I am used to this in the luxury watch world. Would not have thought it happened in shoes. Although this "exotic shell shortage" reminds me of the 'elusive' stainless steel Rolex Daytona. Fabricated shortage to drive up demand...long lists of waiting customers and not being able to walk in off the street about buy it if you aren't one of the 'elite'.
