post #46516 of 91812

Does anyone know what the leather is on the Jcrew plain toe boot? I asked them and they didn't know. I'm guessing calf but I'm not sure. 

 

Also, are the 405 Indys Chromexcel or is that only the 403? I've read 25% of this thread and my head hurts a bit.

 

Thanks

Owen

Well, I don't know. I may have to report this post to the mods.




JK of course biggrin.gif


I own these. Not the skates. The Milkshake Indys from Epaulet. They should be making an appearance as soon as temperatures begin to even approach the average for this time of year here on the third coast.


Of course, if they offered those skates in Ravello, no one would be laughing.

If an order is placed by noon eastern, BB ships out overnight shipments and 2 day shipments the same day as the order. I use each service frequently.

They're certainly not shell cordovan. 

 

The J Crew 405 Indy boots are chromexcel. Basically, they are the 403 with a different ankle stitch pattern.

Now my preorder with Leffot needs to be the Kudu LWB...

Any idea how the sizing of the RL Marlow would be? I don't know how the color would compare to Cigar or other exotic shells...

You are an animal!

 

Are you trying to compete with DocAlden?

 

People like you make me feel like it's okay to purchase several pairs of shoes in rapid succession.

I had no idea.  Kind of interesting though.

 

Now I'll probably make a similar reference IRL to his black penny loafers and nobody will know what I'm talking about.  Then when I explain, I'll look even weireder for having known that.

Thank you, sir.  Those are the ultra trees that he threw in too!  Must have made it hard to refuse.

I actually just ordered a pair of unlined suede ankle boots on a black crepe sole from Rancourt, with this boot as the inspiration. I really like how this one looks (nice photos and thanks for posting them, btw), but want to branch out a little in my collection. Hopefully the Rancourt version will be a good one.

 

I agree.  The crepe works tremendously well on that particular boot.  I think OP is correct that it is the snuff color that creates the exception here.  They do look ridiculously comfortable.  You could probably really sneak up on someone in those boots without making a sound.

So kind of you to say so, sir.blush.gif (Blush)

 

Sometimes I post so much that I annoy myself, so I'm glad to have added some perceived value in some small way.

I absolutely agree.  If Alden released a Ravello figure skate today, people would buy them.  Those with wide feet would be remiss that they only came in D width.

 

People would inquire if B. Nelson could put a different type of blade on them, or convert them to a commando sole.

 

 

Edit:

 

P.S.  I ordered some Uniqlo socks last night and they were on my doorstep 14hrs later. (Applause)

Great makeup... Nice color for spring / summer (if it ever arrives).

It is on a crepe sole though nest.gif

Whenever I see shoes in unusual colors with a big fat natural colored welt, I immediately think of Trickers.

My experience is different with the Marlow.

I wear it TTS, and the color of the brown shell is darker than a few of my cigar models. It is a very nice shoe. Does anyone own the Marlow and the brown shell Lindrick boot? Do you find them redundant?

They are a bit Trickers-esque, but they lack the huge eyelets that you typically see in their shoes... The lack of brouging also makes this shoe look a bit sleeker and more like a traditional Alden.

I like how the laces interact with the natural welt

I figured they weren't shell for that price.

 

I read a few pages back that you were a 8.5d in Barrie and 8d in Trubalance, but I couldn't post because I'm new. What's your athletic shoe size? When I was at Unionmade a couple of weeks ago I was surprised that I fit into a 403 in 8d (I'm usually a 9.5 in athletic shoes). Unfortunately, I didn't try on anything else and now I've got the Alden bug real bad and there's no Alden shops in Miami.

 

Thanks

I've got both Marlows and Lindricks. They're not excessively redundant.
Of course I also bought cigar WT boots so I may not be the best one to comment about redundancy.
