I wonder if they could be smoothed out with a deer bone or a spoon, anyone ever do this to get these ridges smoothed down. The spacing between the ridges (bottom two pics) is even between each one and runs across the vamp and sides somewhat. Looks like a manufacturing deal, can barely see it on the other shoe but it's there. Truth is, these are so beautiful I hate to send them back to theshoemart as my creases will eventually run across the vamps anyway... still I wish they were perfect...post #33828 of 1224168/26/12 at 2:38pmpost #33829 of 1224168/26/12 at 2:43pmQuote:
Honestly I don't understand this critique that much. The Barrie chukka fits fine, and cordovan chukkas look great.
Edit - also, essentially all retailers say that Alden chukkas are among their favorite models.post #33830 of 1224168/26/12 at 2:45pmQuote:Originally Posted by chipshot
I too am a J Walker fan. Now this Booker's I've not tried. Single malt? Can you expand? I seek made in USA companies products whenever possible. I've personally had enough of supporting the Communist China built products. Sorry, not trying to offend anybody, but that's how I roll....

What I was drinking last night. I thought bourbon seems like a better fit in the Alden thread...post #33833 of 1224168/26/12 at 2:48pmpost #33834 of 1224168/26/12 at 2:53pmpost #33835 of 1224168/26/12 at 2:55pmpost #33836 of 1224168/26/12 at 3:05pmpost #33837 of 1224168/26/12 at 3:08pmQuote:

J Crew is getting worse with regards to their descriptions and pictures not matching.
I ordered these a couple days ago.
They've been pulled from jcrew.com hence the link to the cached page.
I ordered based on the pictures and didn't really read the description that closely other than seeing Trubalance so I knew what size to order.
However reading the description closer and seeing the below makes me wonder wtf I'm going to receive. I emailed customer service and they said the pictures and description are correct.

Today's image for item 90858.
