FYI - J crew has a new #8 lwb priced at $600 and the 20% off card member code works!
ALDEN® SHELL CORDOVAN LONGWING BLUCHERS
Size: 10 MEDIUM
Color: DARK BURGUNDY
$480.00 x 1 $480.00
I'm looking forward to a pair of these!
Got the Wallace and Barnes ludlow suit for $330 total ($107 for the pants and $220 for the jacket). It's unlined, but wasn't final sale so figured I'd pull the trigger and return it if I didn't like it.
I know a couple of weeks ago someone was hoping the last size 12 pair cordovan longwings from J. Crew would be purchased in hopes of a restock. I heard today J. Crew will be releasing #8 longwings next week some time and luckily they won't be crepe sole!
J. Crew seems to be trying to get that mid-market customer who isn't quite ready for Alden's. Doesn't look too shabby though.
I realize this probably doesn't belong here.
I went and tried on the 10E and it was about a 1/4" larger than 10D in overall length, which is my size in barrie. Phenomenal shoe that I will be pre-ordering next time. Wasn't a total loss. Picked up a jar of Reno.
