The shade of #4 on those saddles looks totally different compared to the boots and wingtips. Really cool to see the different varieties in different batches of shell, even if they are technically the same color

total shot in the dark honestly.. i can remember maybe 3-4 times in the last couple of years (that I've been actively looking into buying Aldens) that a coupon code has worked

That is very noble of you to pass on the savings...

Go to jcrew.com and sign up for their mailing list, so you get all their promo code when they sent it out. In principle every one of their promo codes exclude Alden, but sometimes it slipped through the crack and worked. You just have to give it a try when you get a promo code.

I will be returning my JCREW Cadet shoes because of a fit issue. I really need an 8E but I ordered an 8D and 8.5D to see if they would work. Unfortunately it didn't. I will be returning them this weekend, but I thought I would at least try and give someone who missed out on the good price an opportunity to get them for the price I paid. They are going back on Saturday so feel free to drop me a line. To be clear, I am not trying to make a profit on these. Just want to pass along the good deal I got for our forum participants.

 

I'm willing to do the same as well. I have 8.5 d, possibly even 8d as I haven't decided if I will keep them or not.

Any trick to getting somebody to answer the phone? I want to try a pair of the orthos as well get a set of waxed laces to replace the junk ones that came on my 404's.

yes, i was thinking the same thing. there's a couple of different shades in the boots alone.

only in the realm of this thread does this make sense.

I had to leave a message and a lady at Alden called me back a day or so later. She took my order over the phone and it was 10-12 days before they arrived. That's just how they do business. Be patient.

That's strange didn't know that. My other Alden's don't seem to have the hole or I can't find it. Learn something new everyday!

Just received my natural CXL Indys from Frans Boone, amazing service from this place; from the Netherlands to Australia in 3 days.
