    Quite possibly, my favorite boots: shell cordovan Wolverine 721LTD in Burgundy and 744LTD in Mahogany, both made by Allen Edmonds.

    LOL. I myself have hard time following it too, but sometimes, it can be helpful. I hope folks who frequent that thread--Tifosi, Repptie et al.--might give us a heads up when another JCrew coupon will be floating around.

    Now that would be awesome! Or at least a PM if there's concern over derailing the thread.

    Hah! ;)

    That's aw[quote name="cincikid" url="/t/141581/allen-edmonds-appreciation-


    Thank you, gentlemen, for your input. I actually happened to get two pairs of LWB and a pair of Indy from JCrew some time in July (though they just got delivered the other day) with the 25% off coupon than somehow worked for them. Fwiw, folks at my local JCrew store had no problem stacking a 15% teacher's discount on top, which sounds like a great deal. I originally got them in 9.5 but then I decided to also get size 9 to compare the fit. From what I am seeing, I probably need size 9.25 or maybe 9E to get the best fit.

    That's awesome. Wondering if you could PM me some details about your local jcrew. I'm planning on getting some alden during their next sale, and I'm a student.

    Thanks for the input, guys. That's good to know. It reinforces the fact that I haven't noticed much coming off the chili Daltons when I've treated them.

    I have the 744. I love the fit and feel of it. I hate how the toebox doesnt hold shape well.
    The 721, I really want, and obviously they are few and far between now. I have seen a few up for sale, but nothing my size.
    So, if anyone comes across an 8.5D, PM me.
    Looking great BTW, cincikid.

    Check the Shoe Bank for 721. I got mine from them (the Freeport Store actually) a few weeks ago.

    The official color is "dark chocolate". Not sure about the edge color, but I would call it "antique" edging. They darkened up the edge around my arch area.

    When do you get charged for a MTO? Is it when the shoes ship? When the order is placed?

    Does anyone want to make me feel better that Allison said I'm still at an 8 week wait time for the remake of my Jefferson webgems that I ordered in late-September that had to be sent back when I received them in mid-October? Or am I just being impatient?

    You get charged when they are ready to ship. Allison will call you for payment info.

    So is it fair for me to be a bit frustrated that I paid for the original order in early October and won't have shoes until sometime in Dec-Jan?
