post #42196 of 86586

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

They're just plain tan calf on a double leather sole. J. Crew says "waxed" to make them sound fancy. I've grabbed two brand new pairs to have as beaters off eBay in the last month for $300 a crack.

My chocolate suede Modified last PT boots are a favorite if mine.  They fit so well and look great.  I'm tempted to wear them everyday.  On the other hand, my Alden 1494s are lightweight, comfortable, and cool.  It's like wearing air conditioned shoes.  I lean on them heavily for my summer rotation.  Those are definitely my top two boots, both suede.  The Kudu Indys I also enjoy, but I lean on them for foul weather, hiking, and other heavy wear and tear activities.

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

nice collection & good shine kwhitelaw -- need some whiskey shell as well nod[1].gif

I'm thinking I may need to drop by moulded next time I'm town.. having the market cornered on modified is gonna make it an expensive trip lol

Shopping at Moulded shoe is still much, much cheaper than Anatomica or Lakota House.

 thanks!

 

sadly, I don't think whiskey is going to find room in the stable.. would love some #4 eventually and a brown between ravello and cigar, so I think I'll be giving some monies to Carmina shortly

Any pics of the chocolate suede PT boots?

I think they may still have some larger sizes (i.e. 11 or 11.5).  Hope I'm not wrong...

I'm going to guess that the stock levels at Moulded likely aren't extensive. That may save you some money. smile.gif That being said, you should absolutely stop by for a visit. I've been in very briefly and they were nice about letting me try on for fit. Of course, then I called and got on an order for a pair and I'm in on the Kudu Indy too, so that worked out for them.

I think 10% - 12% annualized, but I can't cite that.  Also, it's composition has changed.
