Ordered the snuff suede LWBs from J. Crew. They will be my first pair of Aldens so I'm pretty excited.

I ordered those #8 LWBs on crepe sole a few weeks ago with an ETA of Dec 5..
The pending charge hung around for a week or so but it's gone now.

That makes sense.

I wanna take advantage of the 30% off sales and pull the trigger on a pair of JCrew Alden. Can you guys promise not to tell MoL? I signed up in his No Purchase Club till mid December. uhoh.gif

Yea, but if it rains on shell or you get caught in a down pour, yur going to look like an ass because you spent 700 on a pair of shoes that can get wet. Granted I have shell boot and I woun't dare wear them when its wet out... I have the J gilbert and have been caught in the rain and no little bumps or issues.


Overshoes are really easy.

I would never wear a pair of tan bucks, unless I had to go to a warm-weather event where they were appropriate. I almost never have to go to such events, so I don't own a pair. Yet I'm considering getting a pair from J. Crew because at that price, you know, just in case ... Has my Alden sickness really reached such depraved depths? shog[1].gif

I started with the J Crew Tobacco LWB.  Four shell LWBs, two shell PTBs, a shell Cap Toe Boot, and one more calf LWB, and I can't help but look for more!

Was looking at their camel suede buck today. Time to snag them if you can.

I grew up wearing the suede buck.  I jumped all over the Alden for J Crew version with this sale!

I never wear black, but I couldn't pass up the longwings at this price. At least they fill one of the tiny holes I have left in my shoe wardrobe.

Am I the only one who got the snuff suede chukkas?
post #38338 of 91641

This is actually my first post on this forum, although I have been lurking for quite some time... I just wanted to thank all the contributors to this thread as I was able to properly downsize in the trubalance last on my first try and find the perfect fit for my Indys from Leffot (http://leffot.com/shop/alden-x-leffot-405c-pre-order/).  On top of that, because of the Jcrew 30% off code that I was alerted to today, I was also able to use a my $100 gift card and get the #8 captoe for under $400 including tax.... This has been a great week to say the least, so I just wanted to say thanks!

I'm only seeing longwings, boots, and bucks (9 different pairs total). No chukkas. Wish they would've kept the natty longwings or boots up.

I saw snuff suede chukkas up there a few hours go. Did they get taken down?

EDIT: nvm I still see the chukkas listed on their website
