Water spots and editing rules be damned. Sorry dudes, eggs have to be hidden and the kids must play.
Looking good hiding those eggs in your cordovan indy's. I did the same today but had to go with a pair of vans for my egg hiding adventure. I was at the beach though which is where i have to draw the line for wearing aldens......
Has anyone found that J.Crew ships a wishlisted item (ie., shell cordovan cap toe boots) sooner than the given expected ship date?
if by wishlisted you mean a product that has a delivery date further out than normal shipping.. all 4 pair of Aldens purchased from them have arrived earlier than quoted.. I remember reading somewhere that the CEO of Jcrew admits that they would prefer to quote a date and then exceed expectation by delivering earlier.
I had the opposite experience. Mine were delayed once (by a week) and then shipped later than the delayed date (by another week). I guess that even J. Crew doesn't have the magical ability to get Alden to deliver on time.
I reject that explanation. The pic has nothing to do with Alden LWB, rather, it is a pic of some florsheim shoes with pants made to look like smoke stacks.
Still a cool illusion though.
Thanks for posting it.
The term "Gunboats" is not unique to Alden and LWBs all have the same basic characteristics - the picture makes sense in that context. If you use your imagination and look at your the shoes top down, they will have the appearance of gunboats. In size, character, shape and weight. Big, heavy, distinctive brogues. Hence the term "Gunboats".
The beauty of Ravello PTB today. A few things to note:
1. These shoes got some water spots over a year ago that still will not come out ! Stubborn. You can see them in the pic.
2. The mismatch in the shell shades is quite evident in this light.
3. My ankles aren't as big as this picture makes them look!
