It is sticking the finger in the eye of a supplowr. Either the relationship is frayed or broken and so J.Crew does not care or J. Crew has such bargaining power it thinks Alden cannot afford to care.
That is not an Alden boot? Amazing that J. Crew would rip off a product made by one of its suppliers.
This make-up is identical to one offered by Alden NYC, Leffot, and others except that the J.Cre make-up pictured here uses brass speedhooks whereas the ones I mentioned used brown speedhooks. I have the Alden NYC version and if I had a choice, I would choose the brass. This is a great looking make-up and it is very comfortable.
Guiltily contributing to the thread hijack and this is a sincere question:  what is the benefit of buying expensive jeans?  What do they offer for the significant marginal additional price over Levis?  And are the benefits true for the not-so-slim like me (42-44 waist depending upon fit)?   If I were inclined to hit the world of high end jeans, are their brands available to me, or is this world only for the slim and small-butted?

I am in on that.  I got no invoice.  I suppose the short/wide pairs needed more time and attention.  But it seems clear that all will be available before the Winter, which is good news.    Not like the milkshake suede (basically light cream colored) Indy boots I received in February -- when there was four months of freeze/thaw slush on top of 8 inches of packed snow on the ground. 
Good Lord!  You know the answer:  Both! And neither with blue-colored jeans.  Wrong color shoe for those jeans. Beyond the style point, and in all seriousness, I like the perforated captoe better in a boot.   I think a boot with a plain toe, plain shaft, blind eyelets and speedhooks that blend into the color of the boot (as opposed to contrast) is just too much plain.  While that perforated captoe does not add much more ornamentation that the captoe, it does add some and I...
