Ugh. I had two Alden shipments from TSM that were supposed to be delivered by FedEx yesterday. I was working from home and noticed both tracking numbers said "Delivered. Left at front door." about 5 minutes after the recorded delivery time. I opened my door and the packages weren't there. I'm currently waiting for FedEx to get back to me.

No.
My fiancé bought these for me as a christmas gift, got them and they were too long and a little snug across the vamp. We contacted LS and they had one pair left in the next size down and an E width.
Just got these in last night and they fit spot on, perhaps a wee bit snug across the vamp but being they are soft calf I am sure they will loosen with time.

Now if our weather would just cooperate eh I'd be able to wear them.

That is concerning. I had an order from jcrew before the holidays that I had been tracking in great anticipation of receipt (shoes). So on Friday December 7th the package tracking showed delivered (by UPS) with a note that package was left at front door at 3:37 pm. I was at work but my wife who works from home was there at that exact time. I called jcrew to explain the problem and they said they would be submitting a claim to UPS and would get back to me. The following Monday December 10th, low and behold UPS truck pulls up and delivers the package. Out of curiousity I checked the tracking number on the package and it matched what I had tracked and no additional information was added online/UPS tracking.

 

The whole thing seemed very fishy to me and I have to say that I suspect the UPS driver was behind it. I don't understand why companies like jcrew and theshoemart broadcast their logo's all over their exterior packaging. IMO nothing good is to be gained from that and its really just an invitation for theft.

Hmm, I wonder if I should alert TSM of this.

I would let them know right away, definitely. You don't want to be left on the hook for this.

Thanks. I just did.

^Also, it may all be relatively innocent. I had UPS deliver several boxes down the street from their intended destination within the last year or so. It was the holidays and I'm sure the driver didn't know the area. You may have had a replacement driver put the boxes down in front of a door that he thought was yours. Not saying this makes sense, but it does happen. I'm sure FedEx will find the boxes. A pain to have to wait, of course, and I hope you didn't pay extra for faster delivery...

I didn't pay any extra money for expedited shipping, and I don't mind waiting a couple days, provided the packages show up. I just don't want to be on the hook for this, like you said.

On I've had a fedex driver scan the package as delivered when he was still en route before. He eventually showed up with it a good hour after it was supposedly delivered. He didn't have much of an explanation for why he did this, i called fedex after and complained about the incident for what it was worth.

You wore those shoes on Bourbon Street? If I'm down there during Mardi Gras, I'll only wear shoes that I can hose down and throw in the washing machine.

Anybody know which retailer stocks whiskey chukkas? Thinking about getting one for the spring.

Yeah, we'll see if they somehow show up today. TSM is going to get back to me after they contact FedEx.

Keep in mind also that the sole breaks in after some wear, which reduces heel slip.

I never understood the sole breaking in until my 3rd pair, and there is a noticeable difference afterwards. Heel slippage in the beginning is normal, and some people say it is necessary for correct fit.


With a double leather sole, the shoe is very stiff right off the bat, making a well-fitting shoe appear to have too much heel slippage. Once that sole gains some flexibility through a few wears, you shouldn't have a slippage issue.

Both are marked 9 1/2D, and I thought they were both on the Barrie last. I'm totally confused, because the Brixton is shorter and narrower than the LWB.

Did I miss the memo, and these aren't both supposed to be Barrie?

Here are the markings from the shoes:
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Alden x J.Crew Ravello LWB 9.5D
3.5" at the wide part of the heel
12 3/4" Long

9 1/2 B/D 2H26X025 10
97504

Alden x Epaulet Brixton 9.5D
3.25" at the wide part of the heel
12 1/2" Long

9 1/2 B/D 2?14 026 10
44663

Many people have reported that Barrie lasted boots are often shorter and narrower than Barrie lasted longwings. I have found this myself with Barrie captoe boots, and have subsequently sold all of mine (for boots, I need an E width). It seems to me that Barrie longwings tend to be longer and wider than most Barrie shoes in the same size.


I agree^^^  My LWBs have probably more room inside than they should.  (I prefer to err on the side of being a little roomy over a little too snug)  My J crew Cap Toe boot (also barrie) fits absolutely perfectly.  So yes, the LWB seems to be a little wider, but I don't think they are longer than my barrie lasted boot.
