Finally got mine Plain toe chromexcel from ups ,

The welt used by the make ups from j crew and the plain toes from alden of san Francisco is different , i prefer the styling of the j crew ones a little more.

The j crews are a us8 and the natural cromexcel ones are a us8.5 , fu,I wear a wolverines us8 and the Chromexcel ones felt roughly around the same size, But the j crews us 8 are definitely smaller than the wolverines.Is there a tendency for the make ups from j crew to run a bit smaller ? .
I hope i am on the right track on sizing up mineself,only time would tell :/ ,

 

I absolutely love those natural Chromexcel boots;  they are gorgeous!  What sole is on those?…crepe?  Is this model still in production and available to purchase?  I have looked and can't seem to find them anywhere.

I was going to post pics once it arrives and I decide that I am going to keep it - Omega Speedmaster pro. I had no intentions of buying one but thought the deal was too good to pass up and I am an Omega fan. For some reason their watches appeal to me more than any other brand.

Love it!  Great choice, congrats.  We have very similar taste in footwear and watches, or said another way, you sir have excellent taste ;)

Congrats! I'm passing a few Alden deals myself as I'm in the process of upgrading my SubC to another Rolex classic nod[1].gif

i'm thrilled with how they look although I am a bit concerned that the cap toe is so much darker than the rest of the boot in brighter light.

that is a feature of shell cordovan to behold ... I find the the perfs on my JCrew PCT reduces the effect

I decided to change the welt, one because I love antique welt on color 8 and two, antique seems a little more casual. No before pics but basically a black edge......


 

 

Those look great.  Would you mind detailing the process (including the products involved)?

 

I'd like to do this for my Jcrew PCTs.  The only reason I haven't already is because of the dark welt; do you like how the dark welt sits with the antiqued edge?

This evening was the maiden voyage for my #8 captoe boots on the grant last, originally purchased with Ben Silver.
