    New boot: I just got my Alden suede boots from J Crew with the crepe sole - and every time I walk there is a pretty loud "pop" in the left boot. My cobbler thinks it is a defect and doesn't think it will go away in time. Any thoughts? Thanks...

    i called ShoeMart today
    the captoe has the 2 rows of stitching and should be in the next 4-5 weeks (they have a size 9D if anyone is interested)

    the wingtip boot is 5-6 months out and they are accepting pre-orders for it.

    Do you know if the captoe will be on the Barrie or Hampton lasts? There is no description on the website.

    How do I treat scratches like this on a the toe of my boot? I'm guessing it's from a barstool or something. I hit it with a horsehair brush for a bit and it's still visible. I plan on beating these up pretty bad, but would like to treat the scratches as they appear.

    So I'm reading the thread everything is going fine, click on the link to see the boot and no picture. Oh well might as well see what else they have while I'm here..... Bought the damn Ravello 9 Eyelet Wing Tip Boot. My wife is going to be pissed! Seriously have to stop checking these threads :D

    Congrats - that is a beautiful boot, one of their best makeups in my humble opinion. Up there with the Cigar LWB and Whisky PTBs. It has been previously discussed but one strategy is to keep them locked away at work till the right moment comes along with the significant other. I like to wait till she comes home with a few Nordstrom bags in her hands and then BAM, "honey, I just got a pair of Alden's on sale". Then you bring the boots from work and all is well. :D

    Yes.

    I hear whining in the distance. If I remember correctly, you are in the "Barrie killed my mother" camp.
