Don't think I've seen this mentioned here - J Crew has a 20% off code that WORKS for Alden stuff. WIT20 is the code. Not sure how long this will last. Just picked up a pair of the cordovan perforated captoes!
Thanks to all of you - great call on NRO. To answer one of the above questions, I didn't have any issues with fit. I just grew to dislike the lack of sleekness of Barrie - especially compared to my 1493 Leydon chukkas.
