Thanks. I purchased them Sunday evening and they arrived today. Much to my surprise, the UPS guy said "sign here" and walked away after handing me my box. No fees icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

B, I plan on getting year round use out of these. I'm still getting used to the look of the Grant last, but for the most part it's pretty cool. I just wish the commando was slightly beefier around the front part of the boot (or that the welt came a tiny bit further out from the shoe).

Sunday night purchase to Wednesday on the porch: that was exactly my scenario. It had me looking on their site again that evening!

There are only a few shoes which I covet more than your J. Crew color 8/suede saddles. These are just making up for the fact that I can't have those smile.gif

I have a pair of those color 8/snuff suede saddles too and I can confirm they're worth coveting (sorry, not trying to rub it in). I still remember randomly checking the JCrew site one day and - boom - there they were. Ordered them on the spot based on how great they looked in the photos. I think they were sold out a day or two later. It's one of the only 10D Barrie's I'm not getting rid of (along with my cigar LWBs and color 4/black shell saddles).

This is the Yenni of JGilbert. She left JGil on January 31st to start her own endeavor with the support of Adam, so yeah, not really affiliated with John Gilbert's gig. She is looking to do a store like Leffot for the North-West. Excited to see what she gets going!

So I guess thats why response's have been pretty slow and slim. I assume all the makeups currently through JGilbert will still be JGilbert.

The new store sounds pretty neat. I remember seeing the AoC site had makeups referring to JGilbert. Hopefully they will do well!

Yes, all JGilbert orders will stay with JGil, they now have a new rep assigned to handling Alden and she turned everything over to him including all her lists and whatnot. So no need to worry there. Just call their Seattle location and ask to talk to thier Alden specialist. I can't recall his name right now

I am so thrilled that Yenni is still in business.


The new Alden specialist is called Sean, he can be reached at  sean@jgilbertfootwear.com

There you go! Sean is the new Yenni. Thanks for filling in my memory gap. I was more concerned there was a backfill plan since I have a shoe in production that I already paid in full for...

post #102524 of 122416
Sounds good. I just sent an inquiry to info@ so I'm sure it'll get forwarded to the right person. There was one or two of interest I was trying to get a hold of.

You are welcome, Mike! I Hope Yenni's leave wouldn't slow down JG's pace.
