    Excellent. Thanks. I really hope these do appear at Leffot again soon.


    These look great. Beautiful shine.

    J Crew men's shop on 484 bway, as well as the Liquor Store both sold the #8LWB at one time. Not made specifically for J Crew, but....
    Gorgeous. I am hoping to get in on a pre-order for these at some point...

    Got lucky with these... was not on the pre-order, called, and behold they had one in my size! Needless to say it was a quick transaction. I'm on a pre-order for a similar boot but in Whiskey... now THAT is something to look forward to!

    Lighting and how my dye Alden used on them :) Recently their shoes are dyed darker; My hypothesis is that it is done to minimize degrees of shading.

    Yes. Color 8 looks much more burgundy in natural light. It's beautiful.

    How old are yours? The creasing looks minimal.

    Really depends. I'm a 10.5 in Barrie and just purchased some unlined Chukkas on the Leydon in 11D. Leydon is significantly narrower than Barrie. My foot is basically right in the middle of D and E width and fits in the Leydon D but just barely and that's on an unlined chukka so there's definitely some give there.

    So I would say at it depends on a couple of things; namely how wide your foot is and what boot/shoe you are purchasing.

    I think if I had pressed the issue they would have replaced them but I'd almost rather not lose the mileage that I've put on them. Though we'll see how they hold up once I get them back and we'll see if they fix my eyelet problem or just gloss over it. I'll probably call them again on Monday just to make sure that they actually take note of the issue.
