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
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.
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
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.
was doing some organizing tonight so I snapped some boot pics. excuse the poor lighting
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
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)
nice collection & good shine kwhitelaw -- need some whiskey shell as well
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
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 think they may still have some larger sizes (i.e. 11 or 11.5). Hope I'm not wrong...
