feel free to ask Q's......
Are you sure they were Alden? I know J.Crew is now selling Crockett and Jones boots, specifically the Coniston (which is awesome), and they might be taken for Aldens. Then again, I doubt the Conistons will be selling for 460. Brown Chromexcel plain toes would be awesome.
I do have to rant: I can't stand J.Crew basically pushing all the smaller Alden retailers down the priority list. It took Moulded Shoe 14 months to receive their Modified Indy Boots (which is why I snagged them in a good fitting, but not optimal size).
J.Crew's makeups are not nearly as cool as the smaller retailers, such as Leathersoul, J.Gilbert, Alden of Carmel, Moulded Shoe, ShoeMart, Blackbird, etc., etc.
