Styleforum Top Pickspost #49937 of 1224165/3/13 at 10:12pmWarning: #8 Chukkas (Click to show)Quote:Originally Posted by Icculus
finally got aboard - maiden voyage of my #8 chukka ... I can't stop looking at them today. I'm normally an 11E in an AE 5 last, and went with a 10.5E on these (was fitted in the NYC Alden store). Do these require a bit of a break in period? I'm not used to shell, and they seem a bit stiff, but are modestly comfortable. I'm assuming once I sink into the cork bed it should feel roomier.
well, enough talk i guess, here's a crappy shot I took this morning:
welcome to the forum. i think if i was starting over, i'd probably get a #8 shell chukka, something in suede, and a captoe boot. given my current wardrobe needs those would cover me 90% of the time.post #49938 of 1224165/3/13 at 10:23pmpost #49939 of 1224165/3/13 at 10:24pmQuote:
off all Alden at JCREW.com... Sorry, missed including that important detail.post #49940 of 1224165/3/13 at 10:26pmpost #49941 of 1224165/3/13 at 10:37pmQuote:
Awesome! J crew practically never discounts Alden but that code is 25% off anything. Thanks for posting it.post #49942 of 1224165/3/13 at 10:38pmpost #49943 of 1224165/3/13 at 10:42pmpost #49944 of 1224165/3/13 at 10:48pmI ordered the snuff suede PTB j crew make up with red rubber sole. I dig how they look. Didn't want them at $500 but at under $400 I could not resist.
With this discount, it brings shell models like the great cap toe boots down to about $500. + tax. which is a pretty good price.post #49945 of 1224165/3/13 at 10:50pmpost #49946 of 1224165/3/13 at 11:46pmpost #49947 of 1224165/4/13 at 12:18ampost #49948 of 1224165/4/13 at 5:26amQuote:
Argh ... site says code is not valid or expired as of 8:25 EDT.post #49949 of 1224165/4/13 at 5:37ampost #49950 of 1224165/4/13 at 7:45amQuote:
I felt this way a couple days ago--until I realized that I have spent the naval boot money on my recent snuff suede chukka and upl binge. I need a few more weeks to set aside the naval boot money again (unless of course I can't resist and end up buying some navy suede wingtips...)
IIRC, you pointed out the distinct possibility that we might get our naval boots when snow is on the ground in the fall. I hope that this doesn't end up being the case, as I might end up buying black lwb's as another tide over impulse purchase...
