I've been lusting after the pictures on this forum for days now, and I think I'm going to have to pull the trigger on some boots. I love the cordovan cap to on J Crew, but I'm not as in to the speed laces at the top. And then ShoeMart has a cap cap toe with all eyelets, but the cap isn't perforated which I think is a really nice touch. I've been poking around the Internets and can't seem to find both qualities in the same boot. Has anyone ever seen it? I'd also consider wingtips.
I'm a 10 in the tobacco wingtip bluchers J Crew has been selling for years. Should I assume I'm a 10 here as well?
Lastly, I've read about coupon codes and special offers, but can't seen to get any of them to work. I have no problem waiting a month or two if I can get a good deal, but I'm kind of itching to buy.
I love the perf cap toe on the J.Crew boots as well. Like you, I looked for an all-eyelet perf cap toe and couldn't find it. Since I like the perforations more than I dislike speedhooks, I went with the J.Crew boot. I waited about 4 months for a coupon to come along that worked on those boots, and after having no luck decided to just pay full price for them. Good luck!
