If so, I recently took a pair of my Black Suede's there, and the job done was less than satisfactory. While I received the shoes on the date that I was quoted, the job on the shoes could have been much better, and far more finished. 

140 east 55th st, if unhappy, i would talk to Nick about the matter

It ended up being a month but that was primarily because he was out of the eyelets I wanted and had to wait on restock. I think it would have been about 2 weeks otherwise.


Thank you and well done!

Love those! I can't wait to get some Cigar. Hopefully the captoe boots at Alden DC go through next month.

Was hoping for a recommendation on shoe trees. I picked up a pair of the J Crew boots at 30% off and tried putting in a new pair of foot fitter shoe trees (http://www.footfitter.com/p/102-034/woodlore-ultra-cedar-shoe-tree.html) that I use for other Barrie lasted Aldens and they don't fit in the boots. The toe of the tree seems to be too wide. Has anyone else experienced this? Any recommendation on a different brand to use on this boot?

I have the J.Crew #8 PCT boots and I use the Woodlore Epic (double shaft) shoe trees, which fit my boots perfectly.  On some of my shoes/boots, the Epics are a bit too wide and in those cases, I use the AE solid trees (or JABs).  I don't have any experience with the Woodlore Ultras although I've heard others say they are good trees.

Unless my footwear has lasted trees, for my shoes (and boots) I use cedar trees from Alden/BB - which are split-toe - size Large, or AE/JAB - which are full-toe - size Medium.

The Alden and BB trees are essentially the same. The AE/JAB trees are literally the same.

Is it always a burdensome task to find shell wingtip boots that ARENT the #8 with dark leather soles?
