Picked up the last spot on the Tobacco Reverse Chamois WT boot. Just put my deposit down with brick and mortar!

Awesome! I got in on that one 2 weeks ago. It's going to be great!

Darn. Was thinking about these. Now that this has been posted here, going to have to act fast.

At least your size was in stock...

Ideally, I'd like a shell belt to match my shell shoes, but I'm just not ready to spend that kind of money on a belt.

 

I don't have any experience with EP belts, but I'm not impressed by the few I have from AE. Although for the $50-$60ish I paid for each, I don't have a whole lot of room to complain. Another example of getting what you pay for.

Oh what a bummer. My J Crew boots just made it in and they are pretty seriously creased. 

 

Can anyone offer thoughts on whether these are worth keeping, or should I return them in the hopes that a new pair will free up?

 

Is there any way to mitigate these creases? Would I get these creases anyway--or would they be differently located because of the specificity of my feet?

 

These boots are otherwise lovely! :-)

 

Thanks SO MUCH for all your thoughts!!!

Those are indeed quite tried on- but they will crease anyway the first time you wear them. Whether it would be in a different spot or not, probably. That is why most guys want pristine pairs so the creases are specific to their feet.

The pro of JCrew is the occasional discount, the con is that they are far less likely to care how someone tries on a shoe and what they do to it, and it's probably a way for them to get rid of shoes like this and still call them new...

The 975s I got had obviously been tried on but not like this. Kept mine for sure.

Hopefully my order ships.  Even when you have an order number you never know on this stuff.  At least they claim I got a pair.

I own both AE and EP belts and far prefer EP. I own a couple of the calfskin belts and like them a lot. The burgundy is not an exact match for #8 but it's fairly close.
