    #8 on the Barrie last, if they're from J.Crew.

    I bought a pair like a year ago and it ended up showing up with a defect. I got placed on the wait list a few times and they lost my order. eventually, i was able to locate a pair in store and they shipped that one to my house. they were supposed to take me off the wait list, but they didn't. i check my bank account this morning and see a charge from Jcrew. I call them up and am notified i have a pair being sent my way. it'd be nice to have a second pair since they are my favorite boots (barrie haters should really consider these because they fit slimmer and look more elegant than any barrie pair i've ever had) but I'm saving up for an omega speedmaster and I can't swing the extra cash right now. Figure I'd try to flip them on the forum since they seem to have been bumped up in price on the site since I put the order in.

    Jesus fucking Christ! That's the most annoying website I've seen! I literally could not find what I was looking for and got tired of their idiotic gimmicks and simply logged off. Guess I won't be spending any money at Stronghold.

    The only exception is the Indy boot on the Trubalance last.

    As well as the Alden for J.Crew plain-toe boots & Alden for J.Crew suede boots
    . They are also on the Trubalance last.

    Beautiful. I am eagerly waiting for my pair when Leffot's pre-order comes in. I'm curious about the sizing, though--do you have any Alden's to compare them to? Leffot says they size like the Barrie (so I ordered them the same size as my longwings) but other sources say they are true-to-size. What's your experience?

    lol. perhaps for the shine, yes but not for the purpose of reducing wrinkles. Vamp has minimal creasing thanks to the "C" width

    btw, thanks for voting against my youtube video, Alden friend

    btw, to all the size 12 folks out there, Im going to post a pair of #8 Shell boots, Plaza last, commando sole, J. Gilbert Makeup. Being a 12, it was hard to find deals on boots. Just giving you a heads up before they go to ebay.
