I did not even realize it was the same shoe as the photos Ive seen, thanks for sharing. Ive never been a sued guy but I think you may have just made me a convert.post #61609 of 1224169/27/13 at 7:15pmpost #61610 of 1224169/27/13 at 7:44pmpost #61611 of 1224169/27/13 at 7:51pmpost #61612 of 1224169/27/13 at 8:14pmpost #61613 of 1224169/27/13 at 8:24pmpost #61614 of 1224169/27/13 at 8:27pmpost #61615 of 1224169/27/13 at 8:36pmpost #61616 of 1224169/27/13 at 10:48pmQuote:Originally Posted by CEE88
Gentlemen, thank you. My bias is: I'd rather pay $650-700 for a perfect pair than $399 for a pair with a visible issue on the vamp.
I'd happily keep them if all I had to do was keep a little polish on the vamp. But if it lightens "disproportionately faster" than the blotch, then I would probably return them (and the seller does accept returns).
Is it only going to get worse?
Is this a keep or return situation?
Your first paragraph is spot on.
That spot will not go away.post #61617 of 1224169/27/13 at 10:54pmQuote:Originally Posted by CEE88
Thanks for the tip Sir. I didn't know they could re-dye for this type of problem (and at this point I haven't found what causes these blotches).
I wonder if I could have them re-dye in cigar? Or color 4???
Did you go directly to Alden or did you work through J Crew to start the process?
As a general rule, they will require you to work thru your retailer, which means, unfortunately, you are out of luck.post #61618 of 1224169/28/13 at 12:58ampost #61619 of 1224169/28/13 at 4:05ampost #61620 of 1224169/28/13 at 5:01am
