    I love that! Thanks for posting those rad wingtip florsheims. You are brave: I eould nit d as re tell my 12-year-old boy about reading a thread about shoes. I would get mau-maued mercilessly, treated with utter old-fogey contempt about that. Took ny boy to NYC this Summer and took him to MOMA. Saw some paintings in different shades of white. He asked me why these ninoaintings were in a museum and why I was making him waste his life looking at them. I explained the intellectually of modern art or maybe the art was about how it made him feel feel - even annoyed. He made me take a photo of his shoes snd send it to MOMA asking that MOMA buy the photo from him and display it. He explained that the shoes were lonely and bored and depicted the ennui of a vibrant young boy stuck wasting his time looking at crap when he could be playing in Central Park.

    I got a call yesterday from Alden Madison to confirm my address so they could send the Alden whisky Indy boot to me. So I should have them by next week. I'll post some pictures when I get them.

    Finally got my email for the DC Ravello CT boot. They are still working through the list for those in the #1 and #2 slots since many sizes got 2 pairs.

    Does anyone know the production timing of the Cigar CTs relative to these?

    Sorry I can't help on the timing for the cigars. Kathy has had at least 3 rounds of them over the last 12 months. I would imagine the drop fairly soon. I have several pre orders from last Oct from AOM that have not arrived yet

    Quote:They were on the same order. However there could have been supply issues, etc. that might have caused a delay. Or they could be here next week...

    Don't know why I feel compelled to say this...but Ed Z. from TSM is basically an Alden sizing guru.

    He/they may not beat their own drum in that regard, but Ed has sized me perfectly for every purchase I have made from him.

    If you are having difficulty sizing Alden's, he would be the first guy that I would call.

    Thanks!
