I've tried contacting them, but didn't get a response.

Funny you should ask...Yenni emailed me Friday and said the #8 captoe/plaza boots had arrived !

I agree!

Patrick: Great job with the VSC. I have been waiting till I ordered a pair of shoes from somewhere that carried it to get some. I mainly want it for my CXL, but maybe I'll give it a shot on shell.

Question, and sorry, don't mean to single you out Patrick.
Why is your right boot twisting like that? Do you use shoe trees?
My snuff chukkas seem to do the same and I keep trees in them.

You know I've never really noticed it until your post. I use trees so I'm not sure why it happens. Perhaps a combination of my gait and that particular boot's manufacture.

beautiful boots patrick_b.

 

when 'on order' purchases are made with j crew, is your card charged when order is shipped?

mmmmmmm captoe plaza!
I was just in contact with Yenni on Friday about the shell Indy order. Not the good news you heard. I guess another month or so won't hurt.

I believe so. I ordered the #8 PCT boots when they had that working 20% off code, and my card hasn't been charged yet. My size was on back order and they're supposed to be in by Sep 12, so we'll see next week if that happens.

Was never a Chukka fan, and this variation has done little to bring me around...




Seriously? Please tell me that Alden didn't actually devote resources to this make-up when they could have been catching up on other [more worthy] orders...




Bakes, where did you see the pebble grain tassel loafer?
post #59498 of 79038

I believe the pebble grain loafer is available on the Brooks Bros website. Right know it won't load for me for some reason.

Not black or plain toe - that's actually a cigar captoe boot on the grant last with commando soles. Purchased from Alden DC. The grant last makes that boot look pretty sleek. They sell it in black and color 8. Alden NYC and Shoe Mart sell versions on double leather soles in black and color 8. Overall the straight tip captoe boot is a great model that a lot of people on the thread own...

Denim looks fantastic with the color 8 PTBs. Nicely paired.

I like your #8 PTB's, they're absolutely a classic. Nice denim, what kind pray tell?

Wow, I can't believe how dark that Cigar is. It looks sublime. It almost looks like a black plain toe to me. I searched the shoe mart, and are these the shoes you are alluding to?

If so, i've had my eyes on those for a little while now. But I might go for a pair of perforated cap toe boots first, a little bit more casual, which is how I would use them.
