    Sounds good Tom, I'll email you in a day or so.

    It would be good if we could have a few models in the works, we should work on a SS model and then a FW model etc

    I have always wanted a perfect pair of penny loafers.

    I would love some unlined / half lined flex welt #8 cordovan plaza lasted penny loafers, maybe changing the penny window to be more traditional as well if I could.

    Flex welt = mega comfortable.

    Would be so nice. Incredibly hard to find a nice penny loafer these days.

    We do preorder/special orders about once a month. Our next one will be released on our website sometime this week. If there is something on it or any future preorder you like, let me know and I will inquire about your size.

    You sir, are a gentleman. Thanks - I will be sure to keep an eye out. My lone pair of Aldens is crying out for company.

    I might contact Alden directly just to see which lasts they have in my size. That would help eliminate future back-and-forthing. All I'd need to know is which last the shoe is made on and thus the possibility of placing an order.

    I'd love to see a custom Aviator boot from Leather Soul. The ones posted by PP in the streatwear shoes/boots thread looked great.

    The suede + contrast sole looks awesome.

    I'm almost 100% positive I'm going to be getting a pair of indy boots sometime in the next couple of months. It's only a matter of time at this point.[​IMG]

    yeah, I was gonna order some from LeatherSoul, but to be honest if I'm going to be throwing down $600+ I want to try them on to make sure the length and width is perfect. Since I live in LA now, might as well wait for them to open their store up!

    Crossing my fingers that LeatherSoul will have some grand opening in store specials at their LA store.

    Lots of reasons, mainly because we cater to a completely different clientele here versus LA so it doesn't transition well. I'm planning on going up to LA to train and open the shop and fly the LA guy to Hawaii to train here before we open LA.

    FYI. One of your LA clientèle would like to see some PTBoots and Indys.

    Can I buy these anywhere besides Steven Alan? SA is sold out in my size. I need a size 8.5 http://www.stevenalan.com/product.ph...roductid=17637 [​IMG]
    They are an SA exclusive. Why not order a half size down and see if they fit? That's what I did...waiting on the box now. Will just eat the $13 to ship back if needed.

    Pretty sure they're just talking about the one on Orvis's site.

    I'd like to get something similar, with a 360 degree reverse welt as seen on longwings, ptb's, etc.

    As I understand it we've come to use the term for a high blucher boot with a suede, roughout or waxed/oiled finish, [​IMG] [​IMG] or the ones I posted here

    I wear 8.5 in other Aldens and even that is a little tight. No way I could an 8 unless these run huge. Plus im turned off by the fact that they are orthopedic shoes and the build quality isnt up to par with the standard Aldens.

    Its tempting, though.

    the regular Indy boot is an orthopedic shoe as well.

    But when I went to craft the guys said they were getting a better model with a more quality construction

    FWIW Indy Boots are orthopedic shoes.[​IMG]
