    It was sunny in San Francisco today and close to summer time - this means Whiskey and White Slacks (WWS) for me:

    see if you can get added to the next run that went into production last month or this month. i was originally on that list but someone backed out on the order that just came in and i got bumped up. they might have room on the next order that is due in July

    In all honesty the customer support I've gotten from J.Crew in the past has been well above and beyond helpful. I also had to work out an exchange on some cordovan captors where the speed hooks were tearing through and that went without effortlessly smooth.

    I did take the Indy's to J.Crew today and the sales girl was quite baffled by my request. I.e. bring the boots there to have them sent back to Alden. But they took them and I guess I'll call tomorrow to see what the status is. I'm fine with waiting a couple of months if it takes that long. Summer is on the way and big heavy boots aren't necessarily the order of the day on most sunny Los Angeles days.

    I've actually seen shots of Alden (during the mfg process) shrink wrapping the uppers with clear plastic while the sole of the shoe is built/finished in the factory. It would be obvious to assume they do this to protect the upper. The "pull-up" characteristics of the chromexcel used on the 403 is prone to scuffs pretty easy.

    If i had to guess what the plasic in the welt is, it would be that.

    My Officer's Indys from Epaulet had a bit of that clear plastic sticking out between the upper and the reverse welt too. That's what I assumed it was, and I just carefully cut it away. No problem.

    This photo makes me want to pull my Whiskey Chukkas from the classified section.

    wow...these look fantastic. It pains me to say it, but MUCH better than mine...which were done at VIP shoes (a partner of B Nelson). Can you post some more pics?

    Yes - I own a pair from Tassels in HK and I think Alden NYC carries them as well
