I almost made the same post myself.  Seems self evident, eh?

I'm still not sure how I feel about the eyelets, but I regret not ordering a pair to be able to decide in person. I'm an 11 if anyone decided against them.

No, I know that. That's why I said to read back a few pages where they were publicly announced (and sold out) within two days.

JCrew in TriBeCa. They're sold out.

still on the hunt for ravello chukkas and possibly a pebble grain captoe/ptb.

 

hoping the kudu modified order goes thru, along with DC Thor boot, and then I think i'm done with boots (not a fan of suede) smile.gif

 

The Kudu order will go through, I'm sure.  It's not as difficult to get as say Ravello shell.  But I will say that I have quite a few suede Aldens (navy PTB, tan chukka, snuff PT boot, chocolate Modified PT boot, mocha plain cap toe Plaza, milkshake Indy).  And yet I am still without any shell Aldens.  The suede makeups work well for me.  I like the textured, matte appearance of suede.  It's visually more interesting to me than polished calf (maybe even shell) and works very well with casual clothing.  Dare I say, though, that I wear my suede plain cap toe balmorals with a suit?  There's a strong element of personal preference of course but don't short change suede as a shoe option.

What a great make up, eyelets look nice

Very nice!

Does anyone happen to own this Jcrew make-up below and a few photos to share? Seems to be a calf upper with some heavy finishing and light bottom. Thanks

Did you try calling the store?  Reason I ask is because I called right after it was posted on this thread that they were sold out (just to make sure), and they had my size.  

 

I worked with an SA named Dee (very helpful and nice).

 I keep trying to convince myself to pick up some suede chukkas but haven't pulled the trigger. had LS clearance sheet been accurate once I got my hand son it, I would have the snuff and regular tan. better for my wallet that I only bought two pr off them lol..

 

I'm sure some suede will land here, I did see a couple on moulded's site that caught my eye, luckily modified works for me icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif
