    I'd give them a call for a status update. Certainly it's reasonable to check up on your order after 4 months.

    When Alden did a custom run for Blackbird in black cordovan with their own branding, I asked about getting a pair in my size (13E) and they said 6-8 weeks. So you know it doesn't really take that long to make a pair.

    The length of time can also be determined by the color of the shell cordovan. While colors like Black and Color 8 are more readily available, colors such as Cigar or Ravello can take much longer and are limited in there availability.

    I was being piggy backed on an order by the Shoe Mart, so I am not worried one way or the other. Besides, funds are a bit low after coming back from the comic con.

    Speaking of 51's. I heard that the English ones are rather nice. Would you agree?

    Going into the five month mark. Damn time flies. I am a bit worried now. I have a great deal of projects all coming into the endzone right now. The Aldens, a Tim Zowada, a few pens, and a custom desk seal should be finished all by August. YIKES!!!

    After shaving with your Zowada, write a letter to a friend you haven't spoken to in a while with one of your new pens, and seal it with your new custom desk seal and walk to the post office in your new Aldens to post your letter.
    Cheers,

    Too funny. I'm planning on doing exactly that tomorrow with a new pair of Alfred Sargents and my Zowada. If I can bear to wear them outside so soon. No letters, just emails - my handwriting debases everything it touches.
