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.

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.

^ play around with it a little.  im serious.

Wish the code worked on the JCrew Alden boots, but it doesn't.  

 

Other news, this may be a silly question, do you use a deer bone on your CXL boots or just on shell?

Try enter the promo code then put your zip code to Estimated Tax.

Think it's time I add another shoe to my collection and came up with a sizing query. Unfortunately, I live too far from a retailer to try anything out.

 

My current favorite pair is the cigar shell captoe boot on the Grant last (size:8D). Fine overall fit and just a tad tight in the toe area. I've been looking at Barrie last shell shoes for my next buy and was wondering if I should still size down half a size? I recall reading that Barrie and Grant are very similar in length, with the former being a bit wider. Perhaps an 8D Barrie would give me that extra bit of space in the toebox and not warrant sizing down?

 

Appreciate any feedback from you experienced folk!

My method was add the LWB to my cart, then put in the code. It gave me the error that the code would only work after putting in the right form of payment. But I just clicked to the next page where you input your address and all that and the sale price was what was showing. I just kept going through the process and it all went through.

but doesn't work on the Captoe Boots, which is the one I want, specifically says excluded.

Try talking to a personal stylist. If you cite a precedent in which the 975 went via discount, depending on which person you speak with, you may get a free pass. The stylists tell me they are happy to be a bit liberal with their policies to help out "loyal" customers.

I do need professional help, but I fear there is no viable treatment. I'll just make do by continuing to buy :bigstar:

Thanks for the tips but it doesn't want to work for me no matter what I try. Guess i saved $500 today.

Promo code worked for me without JCrew card. Although I only went as far as actually clicking "buy".
