Edit: JCrew site wonky as $@&/ -- showed Aldens on sale, no option to add to cart. Then gone. Sorry to those who saw recent post on sale.

I'm working a medical conference tomorrow and will be on my feet all day. I plan to wear the crepe soled chukka. It's my first and only crepe sole Alden and I've really grown to like it.

 

Next to leydon chukka on flexwelt for reference.

May I ask where did you get the Barrie snuff on crepe?

I'm guessing J Crewsy.

Thanks. Not that I'm aware of. We were in Chicago for our wedding anniversary and the AE store was across from our hotel. My wife and I stopped in only because I couldn't find any stores with Alden's. Was about to buy a pair of shell wing tips and just casually mentioned that I have the Dalton's in calf and how much I love them and the manager just happened to remember seeing one shell version in their system. She checked for my size and it was the one. Put the wing tips back and had the Dalton's shipped to my home. Here is a side pic of both walnut Dalton's. I'm no expert but I don't see anything different (other than the obvious):



Looks the same to me......

You did a wonderful job. They look fantastic. Enjoy.

Appreciate the words bkotsko. I had to work to get them to this point, but I am very happy that I decided to keep them. Glad to hear that yours worked right out of the box. They really are very nice boots and feel fantastic when wearing. Enjoy.

FWIW, JCrew PCT #8 Boot is available in most of the normal run of sizes again, back ordered until Feb 2014 (at least the size I just ordered). I know at least one person was asking recently.

I wish someone would ask about my pair in the classifieds :rotflmao:

Wow, I can't believe those are available for what you're asking. Not my size but seriously doubt that they will be available for long. Good luck.

I am not rich by any stretch of the imagination. By wearing $40 jeans instead of $300 raw denim I am able to wear $700 boots which I care more about. I also drive a 10 year old Acura which also adds to me being able to spend money on things I really enjoy. Like fine quality shell cordovan footwear.

I agree with Tifosi. Ever hear the saying " Ten dollar horse and Forty dollar saddle."
