^ Pretty outrageous that only a few days from the ship date, they tell you it will be another three month wait. I know there's only so much that can be done, but that seems like bad/sloppy customer service to me, no matter what the reason is. Surely they can let you know about the delay before that.
would have to assume that J.Crew is just working off an anticipated date that is given by Alden. Otherwise, they'd have to state 'delivery unknown" as we all know how Alden is with delivery dates
