    pretty decent UPS delivery day today...


    J Crew Snuff suede #8 saddle shoe. The color #8 is much darker in person and almost looks Cigar. It is a very cool shade.

    The only strange things is that if you notice in this pic it looks as if the lining is not sealed completely to the shoe. It is puffy and sticks out. Should I be concerned about this?

    I ordered the color 8 Commando sole Indys current in stock at TSM. Cant wait to receive.

    Cigar Indys seem not in stock anywhere with year old preorders still in limbo...

    I think I like the color 8s better though anyways.

    I've never seen a single pair of Aldens at the JCrew outlets that I've been to.

    J. Crew Factory doesn't seem to stock anything actually from J. Crew (hence 2 dots on everything). Want to know where the actual outlet is

    IIRC they are sold at one location down south somewhere, NC maybe? They aren't sold at the standard factory stores.

    How do we know that these ebay sellers are not sourcing from elsewhere if no one has seen Aldens there.

    I bought a pair of the JCrew captoe boot from one of those eBay sellers. There are shaprie marks on the insole and came with no shoe box. Other than that, I can't find any flaw in them. The upper leather is pristine. Only if I knew where they source these Alden shoes..

    Search the interwebz for "j crew clearance store".
    They seem to be in Lynchburg VA and Asheville NC.

    I've always assumed the sellers on ebay selling the J Crew models were just J Crew employees selling on eBay on behalf of J Crew (probably easier selling Alden shoes online via ebay than in the clearance store)
