    Just returned the 14D pair they sent by mistake and they told me I can get 25% off my next pair for the inconvenience.

    I love the Madison ave store!

    Well, Alden Washington screwed up an order just like the Madison store did with scb.

    All I got was an apology, and 'free return' of the boots.

    I was in there a few weeks ago while visiting NYC and wasn't too impressed honestly. The guys working seemed pretty uninterested.

    Thoughts on staying tts but going down a width in the Barrie (which was briefly discussed several pages ago) : I recently purchased the standard kudu chukka in a 9C. The 8.5D, which by conventional wisdom would be my barrie size, felt a little short for one foot, and a little roomy in the heel. The 9C is definitely narrower overall than an 8.5D. The 9C barrie measures the same width as my 9D leydon suede chukkas. If the kudu leather loosens up slightly I'll be golden, if not, might have to put up on b&s

    also, did anyone grab the reverse tobacco summer oxford that blackbird had? fit pics?

    I've been in a few times now in the past month or so and some guys were very interested and helpful, while others were not. All depends on who you talked to I guess

    I'm always confused by this...

    Why won't places like Shoemart, J. Crew, etc. ship internationally?
