Alden NYC stocks a lot of those, but sizes will be limited in cigar and ravello

Thanks for weighing in. If I pull the trigger I will get some pictures up.

I ordered these a couple days ago.

They've been pulled from jcrew.com hence the link to the cached page.

I ordered based on the pictures and didn't really read the description that closely other than seeing Trubalance so I knew what size to order.
However reading the description closer and seeing the below makes me wonder wtf I'm going to receive. I emailed customer service and they said the pictures and description are correct.

From labeling these boots "bal" to labeling various leathers chromexcel when they probably aren't, it's hard to rely on J Crew labeling or descriptions. When buying Aldens from them, just be prepared to send/take what you get back if you don't like it, they take anything back

I'd keep the Jumpers, FWIW.

The LHS is on the Van last. Most wear the same size in the Barrie and the Van. I wear 9D Barrie and 9C Van.

TSM now has the Captoe boot in black shell and 8 shell on the Grant for $677.

A handful of weeks ago it was at 617, then went to 647 for a short while, and now 677.

Interesting ....

Between the description and knowing that they had the brown suede with the red brick sole made up and available in some B&M stores, I was relatively sure they put up the wrong picture.

I'm curious to know who's managing their website. They really seem to be screwing up a lot lately.

I would keep the jumpers.
