First few steps in new cigar cap toe (plaza) from TSM 2nd's list. Had a crease on the right shoe when I gottem'. The plaza is such a refined, sleek last (in the world of orthopedics). Perfect for chinos and suits (unlike #8 barries) Ecstatic about these.

 

Very nice. I picked up a pair of those from Alden NY back in the Spring and it has quickly become one of my favorites. Completely agree on the Plaza as well; it's become my go-to-last as I much prefer the "relative sleekness" for my business-heavy wardrobe.

Took the plunge on some irregulars from shoemart.  I talked to Mark Watrs and was told that he no longer can inspect the actual shoes that you'll get.  Someone mentioned that he was able to do that to go over any kind of issues that your shoes could have. Oh well.

One more thing:  Since shoemart doesn't have a storefront in my state, i was not charged sales tax (!).  Saved me about $15 on a usual sales tax hit on a $300 purchase.  That was a nice bonus.

any way to get the color 8 cap toes on Jcrew's site for less than retail?

I assume that Jcrew doesn't have a wider sizing for these boots either huh

They sometimes, although rarely, send you a giftcard in the mail if you have been a customer in the past but haven't bought in a while and are on their mailing list.

 

I think I got a $25. giftcard with a 'we miss you' greeting card in the mail, and bought my Color 8 Cap Toe boots for a discount using that.

They were giving 25% off a while back for signing up for a j crew card.

yeah they did, this will be the third time they get repaired. 1st time by Alden, second time locally, and now ive found someone is going to replace the back panel. i was able to secure a sheet of shell for this repair. fingers crossed.

regarding the boat shoes. i had a complete "wtf alden!?" moment. luckily it was in the driveway and not on a business trip

Don't know if it works anymore, but if you put them in your shopping bag and wait until a sale and happen to have them still in there, the discount applies.

not on the site, but i've got a pair of Alden's and C&J's from J. Crew during their sales by requesting they honor their sale on them. they were totally friendly. i just asked, they obliged.
