And I also can attest to Yenni and Sean. They are really helpful, friendly people. If you are having trouble contacting them via email give them a ring tomorrow.
if I recall correctly, these are on the plaza last, right? any chance you have any fit pics with some casual trousers? I don't think I've seen very many instances of the plaza last being worn casually

J Crew posted navy suede chukkas today. They are fully lined (like seemingly all of J Crew's suede chukkas), which you will like or you won't. They are also on Barrie, which you will like or you won't. Either way, these will sell out soon

Alden's other suede chukkas on the Leydon look so much better...not sure why J Crew decided to put this one on the Barrie.

Basically all J Crew Aldens (except their loafers) have been in Barrie as far as I can tell. I like the Barrie last on the suede chukkas, but I don't like the lined aspect. With the normal suede chukkas, I need an E (thankfully, more stockists are ordering E widths in these narrow lasts).

On the topic of narrower / sleeker lasts - does anyone have an Alden Plaza or Aberdeeon boot in E width? If so, how do they fit? How about Leydon shoes in E widths?

It seems like lined chukkas are on the Barrie and unlined are on the Leydon.

good point, this is probably true....I think LSW is planning on putting out a lined navy suede chukka at some point too, I should check and see if that will be on the Barrie as well.

yeah I don't really like the lined version either, it almost looks too much like a Clarks DB.

after looking at these, I think it really is the lined aspect that I don't like about the J Crew version, rather than the Barrie last

the jcrew chukkas are TOTALLY worth $55 more.

unlined or not, i'm surprised that Jcrew upcharges significantly more on suede and calf.
