Looks like Alden SF has a full-size run.  Free shipping, no tax.  Why not just order them from there?

A number of new make ups at Frans Boone. Nice to see they're not afraid to use the Grant last.

the vamp is just as tight but the suede has loosened up a bit. van last toe is so spacious compared to the instep. that strap is a killer

So, what do you guys think, could this really be an oversight on the part of J.Crew, or do you think it's intentional? I mean, how many times could a major corporation make such an accidental oversight with their promo codes, especially when they see it results in such a ridiculous (ostensibly costly in terms of their profit margin) one-day spike in Alden sales?!

At one point I had heard it was due to the poor design of their website/shopping cart software. No way to apply exclusions across the board, so some poor schlep had to apply an exclusion rule individually to each item.

While these are not on my feet I decided to share this as I just threw a little saphire on them as I prepare them for their maiden voyage. These are actually my first new Alden shoes. Purchased from Alden of Carmel a few months ago and have been waiting for fall. Today is a work from home day and tomorrow is a denim day, so Thursday these puppies see concrete for the first time. I have seen the occasional Alden complaint lately and I find myself considering AE more and more for my shell purchases. But I still say that an Alden plain toe color 8 with a proper shine is about as good as it gets.



And I just absolutely love the way Alden does commando.

I saw those too but I said to myself "no way are those Alden #4 in an Apple commercial, must be some corrected grain or patent leather"

First day out for these. Salzburger Alpine Grain Shortwing from Epaulet (Aberdeen last). I've been trying forever to get Kathy at Alden DC to make exactly these (including double waterlock sole) but she doesn't seem to think short wing bluchers do very well. I love 'em. Had to compromise though, since Epaulet doesn't do E widths, so I went up a half-size in D and we'll see how they work out. So far, so good, with thin socks.

Regarding Alden DC, Kathy hasn't given up on the e-mail list. Not sure what she needs to do to convince corporate that it's a good thing, but it's not totally dead. I figure if she can reach out to more people she will be more willing to try make-ups that may otherwise not do well locally. I'm in there pretty regularly and it's always interesting to see what regular non-fanatics come in to look at.

^ I'll go to my grave saying those are on the Barrie based on all the photos. Do you own any other Barrie lasted shoes to compare fit?

AAF, beautiful shortwings for a Tuesday sir!
