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 #38373 of 87382

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
post #38376 of 87382
Yep, chukkas still up. When you search by men's shoes-->Alden, it doesn't show them like when you just click shoes.

I've had issues with the toes of a sole wearing quickly on a new pair of shoes, so if the soles are stiff, I will break shoes in on carpet first.
post #38378 of 87382
i can't decide which shoes to get

dark brown LWB i will probably get
deciding suede LWB or bucks

also picking up a barbour jacket i think

edit: well bucks are out of the question. camel are sold out from all sizes between 8-10

How does the Barrie measure vs. trubalance?

I know they both run half a size big. I own three pairs of indy boots and is considering a shoe on the Barrie.

I have a bunion and need a little extra width, but can still do a D width on the Indy.

IME, Trubalance is slightly blobbier than the Barrie, so you may need an E in the Barrie. I have 403s in a 12C and a pair of Barrie-lasted #8 wingtip boots in a 12D, and the fit is similar. If anything, the 403s almost seem a bit wider. Not sure if that has anything to do with CXL vs cordovan tho...

I have trubalance and barrie in the same size (12D). I wear a dress sock with barrie, but can fit a padded sock on trubalance.

Has styleforum recently optimized their site for mobile? Maybe my phone just now decided to cooperate...either way, this is luxurious.

Tried to buy a pair of snuff LWB but the J-Crew site said that it was "excluded from sale" once i typed in the promo code. Did others do something special (perhaps a double secret promo code) or did J-Crew simply put the cabosh on Aldens?
