see if you can get added to the next run that went into production last month or this month. i was originally on that list but someone backed out on the order that just came in and i got bumped up. they might have room on the next order that is due in Julypost #26583 of 1224164/19/12 at 10:26pmQuote:Originally Posted by CHRK33Quote:Originally Posted by localman
Hey guys, thanks to everyone that replied regarding my separating indy's I contacted Alden and they suggested taking them back to j. Crew and then they would send them on to Alden for repairs. If this goes as smooth as they have implied it will it will have at least restored some of the faith I had in Alden boots.
To be honest, I think Jcrew has surprisingly good service. Ask them to just replace them on the spot; I am pretty confident they will. Don't even bother with the repair route.
In all honesty the customer support I've gotten from J.Crew in the past has been well above and beyond helpful. I also had to work out an exchange on some cordovan captors where the speed hooks were tearing through and that went without effortlessly smooth.
I did take the Indy's to J.Crew today and the sales girl was quite baffled by my request. I.e. bring the boots there to have them sent back to Alden. But they took them and I guess I'll call tomorrow to see what the status is. I'm fine with waiting a couple of months if it takes that long. Summer is on the way and big heavy boots aren't necessarily the order of the day on most sunny Los Angeles days.post #26584 of 1224164/20/12 at 3:05amQuote:
I've actually seen shots of Alden (during the mfg process) shrink wrapping the uppers with clear plastic while the sole of the shoe is built/finished in the factory. It would be obvious to assume they do this to protect the upper. The "pull-up" characteristics of the chromexcel used on the 403 is prone to scuffs pretty easy.
If i had to guess what the plasic in the welt is, it would be that.post #26585 of 1224164/20/12 at 6:11ampost #26586 of 1224164/20/12 at 6:20ampost #26587 of 1224164/20/12 at 6:31ampost #26588 of 1224164/20/12 at 6:46ampost #26589 of 1224164/20/12 at 6:46ampost #26590 of 1224164/20/12 at 6:55ampost #26591 of 1224164/20/12 at 7:20amQuote:
alright , just emailed them, hopefully i could get on the list!post #26592 of 1224164/20/12 at 7:42am
Anybody want to take my pair of Whiskey Cordovan Alden LHS 12D off my hands? Bought last summer, lightly worn for a few months, too small.
Love these, they are classics, I'll be purchasing a new pair in my size.post #26593 of 1224164/20/12 at 8:27ampost #26594 of 1224164/20/12 at 8:43am
