Cheers, thebrownman. I probably just have a strange gait.
Re: J. Crew discount code discussion, I think that J. Crew's officially policy is that you aren't allowed to use discount codes on 3rd-party collabs, but individual sales representatives are able to still give you the discount if they're not in the know, or if they've warmed up to you a bit. I've seen some people saying that they've been able to apply the 30% off to Alden, Belstaff, etc., but a lot of people don't have any such luck. If you call J. Crew up on the phone, they'll definitely say no.
