J Crew must've noticed that the latest sale code worked on a couple pairs of their Aldens. When you click on them, it redirects you to the home screen. Since neither pair was expected to ship until 12/4, it'll be interesting to see if they cancel my order.

Tried the pen trick today, creasing actually came out really nice although it's on a pair of captoe boots, so not sure if it woulda creased the same anyways Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

Mixed feelings on this almost grail boot for me (speedhooks vs all eyelets). Just seems a bit too blobbly compared to wingtips. Commando sole is nice though and they will be getting a lot of wear, just wish it was more dressy

Great creasing! yeah, captoes always seem to crease well...until you get a nagging crease in the cap...annoying.

Nice shoe. The 6 eyelets are something you dont see very often. Aberdeen I go out one width ( 11.5D to 11.5E rather than up a half size.

Yeah, we'll see.  Last week, I ordered the Nat. CXL WTB for 25% off using a one-time code for cardholders.  I've been "waitlisted" for items from them before and never gotten them, not because of a code, but because they oversold the items.  I'm not expecting actually getting them, but it would be a pleasant surprise :)

Just checked my order online. Still has the words "Releasable" Keeping fingers crossed it will go through

I contacted J.Crew and they won't penalize on the order that has been placed.  They admitted it was their system problem.  Which model did you guys order?  It was a good deal.  Too bad the Shell only has crepe sole on it.
