    If there was, they wouldn't have left my premises... But then again, then all my others wouldn't have fit!

    Received my jcrew 975 order last nights; AND they have clearly been tried on and as a result have creasing on the vamp (and that faint I have walked around the store look on the soles) I knew I was "in trouble" when it shipped to me from a local store location, rather than a warehouse. What to do what to do?

    ^ I would send them back 975's are very common no need to accept less than NIB.

    Quote:The 20% off kinda makes you stick with Jcrew though. However I'm sure they'll take care of it though and find a good pair.

    Do you guys know if the in store inventory is reflected online? They look out of my size online.

    I was bidding on those too, but didn't win them. I thought the price would sky rocket but the winning bid seemed to be a fair price.

    Thanks. We tend to split the victories it seems. You got those Ravello tassels a few hours before I tried. :)
    Yes. Mike did a good job consigning them and we reached a fair deal. Kinda wish I was on top of eBay as they showed up there first for two hours with an insane (good) BIN price. Just hard to believe there are brand new #4 pairs out there. Kinda the same with the brand new truffle she'll AE I came across. 3 years old. Now if I could just find a #4 WTB :)
    Thanks!

    The promo clearly states that eligible items will say next to it if they are eligible. The Alden's do not say they are eligible. You can apply the code, but it will not show a discount in cart, today at least. Maybe you got lucky. I did not.

    FYI - my email receipt said the same thing - and I received the shoe and discount. I guess it was one of those rare jcrew coupon codes that worked for Aldens; seemed like this happens maybe twice a year for a day

    I'm tempted to order and see If it works for me, but I'm leaning towards natural anyways, so I may eat the cost. Thanks for the info newbiealden.

    Mine is getting there... I got a text just now from her "I had to sign for another package for you" [​IMG]

    I wonder what it could be because the J.Crew cadet package and whiskey LWB's from DC are both coming from UPS and haven't been delivered yet... At least she knows i'm selling a lot of stuff on ebay to recoup some of these expenses... lol
