Guys may walk looking for an Indy boot but end up with an Indy boot, a sweater and a shirt as well.
Not sure if the sale was a mistake or not. In store I know J Crew retailers are hesitant to give discounts on the third party brands when on sale. I've had a store manager offer me a discount on Quoddy, but not Alden. RL also has inconsistency when discounting their cordovan Marlows during their sales (SAs will say Marlows are excluded, but they end up being discounted online, for example)

yes, but j.crew marks all the 3rd party stuff up so I imagine 30% is probably around their cost certainly not at a loss. I've ordered many belstaff jackets from europe the past 2 or 3 years. Even with the sucky exchange it's still cheaper than the j.crew retail price on the same jacket.

Check your order status.
Mine went to "RELEASED" which in J Crew land means they're about to be shipped.
They also show up as in stock now.

I'll work on getting Steven to switch out the crepe sole on the whiskey/black saddles to leather for his next order...

Any chance you can work on him to also order a few 12.5D in Barrie?  Us large footed individuals appreciate the chance to get cool make-ups.

I ordered a pair of Alden Indy's off the J.Crew website using a 25% off coupon code I received in the box for another online order back in August.  The code worked and I paid $380 for the pair that came in 3 weeks ago.

i would suggest that you call Steve, and ask him, when he makes the order would he include your size. i do not know Steve's business model but he might require a deposit to order your size

Get the close heel if it available as it really balances the boot out nicely.

Good looking Whiskey Indy!

What colour of wax did you use on them?
