I don't know anything about this, but aren't they doing that to burn any loose threads?
I'm looking for a pair of J Crew Cordovan PCT Boots in size 11.5 if anyone knows where I can find them.  I notice that they are back ordered at J. Crew, and I don't want to wait several months.  Maybe someone out there is sitting on a pair that they would consider unloading?  I'd be willing to pay a little over $500 shipped.  Let me know.   I realize it's a long shot, but figured I'd just throw it out there just in case...

I would guess Robert, but curious to hear what he says.
