Absolutely love these. Doesn't at least one retailer do brass eyelets on these, or no? Maybe it was FB.

I think it may have been Unionmade?

 

Edit - now that I think about it, I'm not sure who, if anyone, has ever done one...

Fransboone does this same exact makeup.  Snuff suede LWB with brass eyelets, so I basically just copied their design after I saw them (my pair is from AoM + modificaiton) ;)

Frans Boone seems to have quite the devotion to brass eyelets.

Sharp dude !

Two great examples of super-excellent Aldens that aren't shell.

Is there a particular model of shoe/boot you are looking for? If it's something stock like a calf or suede LWB, you should be able to order it from most retailers. Not far from Ann Arbor you can check with Carl Sterr or Claymore Shop, both in Birmingham, and see what can be done. I know you just missed an Alden trunk show at Claymore this past weekend.

Can someone please tell me the principle differences between scotch, alpine, and Regina grain patterns?

Oh man, anything good at the trunk show?  I'll have to get on Claymore's email list to get a heads up when those happen.

I don't know. I was too lazy to drive or walk the two miles to go check it out! crackup[1].gif

FWIW, I went to a trunk show there a couple of years ago and it was mostly stock offerings but the best part was that the rep brought a ton of different lasts and sizes so it was a good chance to find my correct size in things like the Plaza and Grant that I don't get to try on too often.

They usually have another trunk show there sometime towards the end of the spring.

JCrew really does have fantastic customer service. 60 day return window, which is 2-4x as long as most any other Alden retailer, and in the past week alone they have let me return an unworn pair bought in January for store credit (I buy a ton from them so that's fine with me) and will price match the 25% off I got on the PCT boot if I return the ones I have and wait for my true Barrie size to be restocked. That's going above and beyond to me.
post #118602 of 122416
^ That is outstanding service and I'm glad they've been accommodating for you. But please... Nobody mention the PCT boot again for a few days. I reached for mine this morning and then put them back and grabbed something else.
post #118603 of 122416

^ Yes, please.

Very cool makeup. I'm lusting so hard for an NST or Tanker right now.
