Hi Friends, I bought my first pair of Aldens (brand new 405s) the day after Christmas.  Love them, but noticed a couple issues.

 

Thread is coming undone on the corner of the right boot.

On the left boot, the stitching on the welt is starting to fray.  It looks like the welt was trimmed very close to the thread, exposing the thread to more wear.

Here you can see a comparison between left and right to see the difference.

My question is, would there be any concern about the long term durability of these boots related to these two issues?  If so, can anything be done to to help?

Same. Well the Indys were my first Aldens. I have about 10 pairs now.

You can email Dimandja.utshudi@jcrew.com and ask him to reserve you a pair or, if the store is open, he'll complete the entire transaction. He was the sales rep that sent them out to me in California.

Good Luck!


Have any of y'all seen these in person? They look more like Whiskey in this pic, than Ravello.  Any thoughts? Thanks...

I'd say Ravello, given how they're lit in the photos. The more I look at them though, the more I dislike the eyelets.

PTB, by a slight margin.
