    Broke out my snuff suede longwings from J. Crew for the first time today. I ordered them in the fall and the order kept getting pushed back and then didn't arrive until just a couple of weeks ago. However, at almost 40% less than what they charge for them now, I cannot complain too much.

    Why is that? Did they give you some money back because you had to wait so long?

    I was able to use a code for 25% off, I called to complain when the shipment got delayed for the second time and was able to get another $40 off, and they look to have raised the price about $30 from when I bought them as well.

    Hey guys, thanks to everyone that replied regarding my separating indy's I contacted Alden and they suggested taking them back to j. Crew and then they would send them on to Alden for repairs. If this goes as smooth as they have implied it will it will have at least restored some of the faith I had in Alden boots.

    ugh.. sounds like an awful experience... and good luck getting them back anytime soon .. I'd guess 2 months and that's a conservative bet

    To be honest, I think Jcrew has surprisingly good service. Ask them to just replace them on the spot; I am pretty confident they will. Don't even bother with the repair route.

    Yep, I've been to two Nordstrom stores and neither would split a pair for me. It sucks having two different sized feet...

    Agreed. If there is a defect in the a boot bought by J Crew, simply exchange, they are good at that

    My Red Wing x J.Crew boots came in a couple of days ago and despite being both tagged the same size, the right boot is clearly half a size smaller than the left one. My right foot is also bigger than the left so it just makes it worse. Despite the fact that the boots were on clearance for final sale and no exchanges/returns, I emailed CS with a description of the issue and within 12 hours I had a refund sitting in my PayPal account and I don't even have the return shipping label yet.

    Wonder if you're out a good pair of clearance boots though... maybe that's the reason they were last ones available, heh

    I would never say that to a person if I didn't know him on a personal level, which in this case, I do.
