post #38026 of 86630
So, I've got the captoe boot in #8 on the Grant last. I love them and they fit great. Barrie was never quite right for me. Should I go ahead at get the same boot in Cigar? All my other shells are Allen Edmonds PTBs in black and burgundy. That makes for a versatile collection, doesn't it?

I want to pull the trigger but, you guys know, dropping some big coin on yet another pair of shoes always makes you sweat! On the other hand Cigar is rare and I don't want to let the opportunity pass.

those are definitely "sort of green" and "a little red." no question.

that's not how binary works. binary is 1 and 0. are the longwings you posted 1 or 0?

like i said before, it seems like you don't realize how un-simple the question you're asking is. seems like most everyone else in this thread does. you should think on that.

Yes I'll give a shoe message board member's thoughts on my opinion of a proprietor's service a good long think.

Hey guys, I got a question about J.Crew longwing blutchers in #8. It says they come with a crepe sole. How is that shoe? I was thinking of ordering some until I noticed it doesn't come with a leather sole. Now I'm leaning towards the waxed version. Any suggestions? I have been primarily looking at J.Crew since I have a gift card there right now I could burn.

What are your other favorites at J.Crew? I have the captoe in #8 and some Indy's. Looking for a 3rd pair.

Got the captoe boot? That's a standard favourite around here.

Thanks. I really like them a lot. Any other J.Crew x Alden shoes that stand out in your mind?
