Question: I just received my Indys from J.Crew and I noticed the stitching was undone in one area. Was wondering is this acceptable or will present a problem once I start wearing them? See the pic below.

0 or 1. I'm fond of the $400 #8 PTB's seconds I got off TSM.

Certainly not a long-wing. The only value-proposition to Alden is in their shell shoes, and a LWT has to be the worst platform to showcase shell IMO.

The last paragraph = curious, and seemingly unprovoked.

I've been going after rare cordovan colors and suede... In 2013 I will focus more on basics, like this one - black PTB, color 8 tassel, etc


Amen brotha.  I'm eyeing a pair of color 8 tassel mocs!

No. Not acceptable. Return to either J. Crew or Alden and they will repair.

This wouldn't bother me.  I don't think the stitching will come loose.  But, considering the price point, by all means return them if you aren't happy.

Hey so I finally started my collection. I bought a pair of LWB #8 to start but I have examined them at home and it doesn't feel right. I took a few photos maybe you guys can tell me if I am being OCD or not.

 

1. There is a small scratch in the instep of the left shoe.

2. Some discoloration on the inside of the heels

3. There is a large bump or bend on the inner side of the left shoe.

 

I imagine some polish might get the scratch out but what about that bump on the side? Could I fix that or is it just easier to exchange for another pair?

Wouldn't bother me either but if you are concerned, back they go!

I believe Leffot has Black Alpine Grain restock a few days ago

Returned my #8 cap toe from JCrew. With so many floating around that were copped on sale, plus the fact I have the #8 cap toe plaza from LS on order, it was hard to justify keeping them.

But so I'm thinking of putting down for a pair of the #8 PTB from Alden of Carmel when they do their fall 2013 order. The comando sole + plaza last is hard to resist. Anyone have any pictures of theirs to share?
