    We all know shell's the bee's knees, but let's see some more calf and suede offerings.

    Judging by that picture, I'd say they are shoes.

    I get complimented on my alden cordo shoes/boots regularly. I'd say its 70/30 men women though.

    In other news, i got the Jcrew captoe boots today. when i get home i'll inspect them to make sure there are no defects. if anyone is interested in them shoot me a pm, because otherwise I'm just going to return them tomorrow morning. this was an unexpected charge and I want the refund asap. size 8.5 D

    Are you offering a substantial discount or something? Not sure why someone wouldn't just pick up the phone and order them or buy online if they wanted a new pair of J Crew Alden boots

    yup i got this pair at a slight discount because jcrew kept messing up my order (the story is somewhere in this thread). It ends up being a decent discount for anyone who would have to pay taxes and shipping on these boots. also, the size is sold out on the website and since they aren't back ordering anymore, it might be that after this run, the style will be discontinued. i could be wrong about that though.

    FYI for all fellow NYC-ers,

    Tom Austin, an alden stockist, is apparently going out of business and is liquidating alden stock. probably mostly stock shoes.

    Yes, thank you. I saw the NYT article. I may be interested in a pair of #8 975s. Can anyone proxy?

    This is a cross-post from the Alden MTO thread - we need eight more people who would be willing to participate -



    In 2009, Tassels offered the Alden Combat Boot in Black Smooth Calf -

    http://www.tassels.com.hk/en/made_to_order_details.php?id=8

    I am looking for 11 other people who would be interested in approaching Epaulet about a special order of these shoes.

    - Trubalance Last (the only change I am proposing - originally came on Barrie last)


    - Premium Extra Smooth Calf in Black


    - Flat waxed shoes lace

    - matching eyelets


    - Rugged Commando Sole

    - Pull tab

    [​IMG]

    Gentlemen, nobody is offering this type of shoe - let's get this done now, so that it will be available by the fall.
    Who's in?

    Edit: I realize that what we are proposing is also similar to the LS Lady Calf Jumpers (offered more than a year and a half ago); the difference, though, is that we are adding the commando sole - here are pics of the LS Lady Calf Jumpers, to give you a better idea of what we are proposing:

    If interested, please let us know -
