    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    All,

    I received an e-mail from North River Outfitters (NRO) They are celebrating their newly redesigned webpage with free shipping on all orders over $50, and %20 off all regularly priced merch. I tried going through the checkout process and the coupon was applied to a pair of Aldens I had in my cart.

    Just FYI....

    What was the code? Just adding to cart and checking out doesn't do it for me.

    Papa Doble,

    This looks like it could be your ticket. Their website says they can get it in 11C, however, I must warn, some on this thread have had less-than-positive experiences with them in the past. I've never purchased anything from them personally.

    Thanks to you and the others for the positive replies.

    The one thing I forgot to mention in the post was that I'm finding the commando sole less comfortable than a double leather soul. I think my double leather sole took less time to break in and conform to the shape of my foot. Hopefully it will be broken in soon.

    I'd say leather. 95% sure about it.

    The order I placed with NRO at the end of June, and cancelled the 3rd week of of July (after NRO not being honest about shipping dates on 3 separate occasions) was delivered to me a little over a week ago.

    No one would answer the phone, or return voicemails or emails, when I tried to inquire as to why the order was shipped after I cancelled it and how I could go about returning it.

    It wasn't until I filed a complaint with the better business bureau here in MA that I received a prompt email with "Our most sincere apologies" and a return shipping label.

    Caveat emptor.

    the pair I handled in the Ludlow shop in NYC was on double-waterlock.

    They are really nice in person.

    edit: wait a tick, you own these and are asking us what kind of soles they're on??

    You have the shoes and don't know what kind of sole it is?
    That's pretty clearly a double leather sole but the description says single oiled sole.
    Funny, I got the snuff suede/single waterlock sole combo from Epaulet a while ago although on Leydon.

    J Crew is getting worse with regards to their descriptions and pictures not matching.
    I ordered these a couple days ago.

    They've been pulled from jcrew.com hence the link to the cached page.

    I ordered based on the pictures and didn't really read the description that closely other than seeing Trubalance so I knew what size to order.
    However reading the description closer and seeing the below makes me wonder wtf I'm going to receive. I emailed customer service and they said the pictures and description are correct.

    Odd, I e-mailed customer service & they said the pictures online were correct, but the description wasn't.

    Got an email from their personal shopper. Supposedly, the pictures are incorrect and they are re-shooting the humus indy photos. I asked if the nst was going to be available as well and he said not that he was aware of.

    I'm hoping the pics were correct.
    Oh well. I guess I'll find out in a few days.

    Thanks for reaching out regarding the Limited-edition Alden[​IMG] for J.Crew Indy Boots in Suede. The picture that was shown for these boots is the correct picture. The description of this item is also correct. I would describe the color of these shoes as a camel color. The sole of this shoe is as it is started in the description. The sole is rubber.
