You'd be wrong there. I don't have instagram, twitter, snapchat or whatever the latest app is now.

Not if I'm planning on moving this year and will have to get approved for a home loan again. Don't want to be opening new credit cards at the moment.

Perhaps you know my best friend's wife? Her name IS Sally and she's definitely into that sort of thing

That JCrew LWB is decent deal even without a card right? Still saving around 10% to the normal price?

Understood........you definitely would be ill advised to impact your credit score to save 20% on a pair of shoes, but you might want to check into the details of how your score is calculated, it may be different than you think.

I've got the discount applied all the way to the part where I'm about to click "Place Order" even though I'm using my regular Visa....

Just open one in your kid's name already. :teach:

Update: It let me purchase the shoes with my regular visa with the discount. Just got a confirmation email. These might be going back as I just bought some brown shell wingtips from AE not long ago, but the price made me get these on impulse. If I decide to pass on them, I would be happy to pass them along at the same price I paid to any fellow 10.5ers that missed it or couldn't buy at a discount.

I've been saying that I don't need a ravello ptb because I already have a color 8 and cigar ptb. Clearly I should stop deluding myself.

Well done!

You need professional help - unless of course you cure yourself by getting yourself a pair. biggrin.gif

I can't believe I didn't try this. Now the size 9 is gone...

I've read so much conflicting info that it's best just to leave it alone. Like you said, not worth it to save $100 at the moment. There will be future sales I can partake in.

Yea, i applied for the card. I am not in the mortgage market so not worried about it.

However, I applied for the card and then during checkout it let me use my default debit card and did not force the new jcrew credit card to get the discount. Just thought I would let others know this, as I much prefer paying with my own card rather than their credit card.

Hi.  Newbie here and first post.  I've been browsing this thread for some time and really love some of the Alden shoes and boots I've seen here.  I recently acquired a pair of used black Alden PTB style # 2817 in Plaza last size 8.5 B/D.  Not having tried Alden before, I took a shot hoping this is somewhat true-to-size.  Unfortunately, even with a soft insole I put inside, my heels are still sliding out.  These shoes look to be slightly longer and wider than my other 8.5D shoes.  For reference I measure 9D Brannock and fit nicely in AE 65 last (ex. Strand).  Is the Alden Plaza last just longer and wider?  Are all Alden shoes slightly longer than other brands in same size?  What last should I be looking for?  I really would love to get a LWB some day when funds become available.  Thanks.


Well, I'll answer part of my question.  Just found the link below regarding sizing.  So as I suspected the 8.5D is more like 9D.

I just tried it and it keeps saying I can only use that code after a valid form of payment has been entered. Tried it with a Visa and MC.
