any guess on this last?

post #38268 of 87880

Quick question.

 

Is the vamp on the color 8 plain toe from Alden of Carmel a bit higher than that of the stock 990?

 

I have a low instep, then would like the higher vamp.

 

Thanks!

Very nice, I've been thinking about a Shell Chukka from Alden or AE, they both look amazing either way.

Hmmm...I would say it a bit different. Don't get anything in crepe sole if your intent is to wear it 100% of the time in formal/dressiest of settings. Alden's black crepe is fine for wool trousers/sportcoat, dress khakis/ navy blazer and below. May even be fine for more casual suits. Anything dressier than no for crepe.

J Crew has always honored orders like this in the past.

The standard advice for the Barrie last is to size down half a size.

What if the boots are made of Shell Cordovan? With its less stretchy and probably thicker nature would going for the same size (i.e. not -0.5) work?

thanks in advance

Thinking of getting the snuff suede LWB from Jcrew... i have the boots and love them, is there a need for the LWB. I have no suede shoes... or should I by pass these and also return the Tobacco LWB and get a pair of Shell, say ravello or cigar... LWB or Boots?
