J&M purple laces on Alden 975 (Color 8 LWB), edgetrim converted to antique-look.

These are GREAT

Yes I do...  While I am typically dead-set against getting these types of promotional credit cards, J Crew made it too attractive for me to pass up.  At the time of another shell purchase, they offered me the card, with 30% discount on my purchase at the time, and a $50 gift certificate bonus for every $500 that I spend (ongoing) ... so I went for it.  As a card member, they send out special promotions just for card members, like I received for this purchase where I could take a 30% discount on any item purchased, whereas their general promotion is only 25% and not available on everything (and it appears not on Aldens).  So at the end of the, if I buy something for another $40 bucks at some point, I will receive a $50 gift certificate and those new shells I just bought will have actually cost me $410...LOL...  That's a pretty good deal... So I would recommend the J Crew Card, if you like their offerings... it really does offer some additional value...   And I also noticed those cadets are no longer available...  For once I got the timing right... LOL...

I like the whole thing. Yes on the edge trim, yes on the purple laces.

This would almost be worth signing up for their card. I just worry about signing up and getting some lame credit limit like $1000 and taking up half of that on a shoe purchase. Aren't store cards usually a hit on your credit if you use a lot of your limit? Just checking....

You will get a lame credit limit...  what I typically do, is send a payment in right after making the charge so the debit and credit post within the same billing cycle and when they report to the bureaus it shows as 0% of the credit limit being used...  From what I understand any balance on any card over a certain percentage (I think 30% of the credit limit) begins to incrementally negatively affect your credit score...

The 30% off promo is only for cardmembers and their card is just so-so. For every $500 you spend you get $25 toward your next purchase. But if you sign up you get an additional 10% off your first purchase. Other non-cardholder benefits I like is the 15% discount on ALL items (if purchased in store) if you're either a student or a teacher. The SAs in the stores routinely give me this discount on 3rd party merchandise, too. Once you get your SA's card you simply call in and have them place the order applying these discounts so walk-in purchases are no longer necessary. Additionally, their credit limit is easy to increase which I had to do on a couple occasions because of needing a different sized Aldens sent out so I could return the one that didn't fit.

That is correct... its only valid with the use of your J Crew card...

Anyone ever had any suede Aldens sent back for restoration? Before and after pics maybe? I imagine I'll be sending my suede chukkas in very soon and just wondering what to expect for the uppers.
