    Alci, do you wear the laces so open for comfort? Mine are generally pulled bal tight. I don't have particularly narrow or wide feet for that matter either...

    I have a high instep, so laces on my Alden boots tend to look very open.

    You mean specifically at J Crew? Technically, the answers is no, but I think people report success with adding the Alden to your cart before the sale and then checking out once the code/sale is active. Never done it myself. I'm sure someone can chime in with facts on this.

    at jcrew its your ymmv. their specific policy is that none of their discounts work on aldens, however, due to whatever reason, things were up to 40% off last holiday season.

    They just had another 40% off sale, but no Aldens were marked down, so the 40% off didn't work for them.

    captoes, longwings, ptb's
    dark tan dress calf, color 8 cordovan, dark brown oiled reverse chamois, snuff suede

    On the strong conviction of this forum, I purchased the dark tan perf captoe boots from TheShoeMart. They are indeed on the barrie last. Exactly what I was looking for. So thank you Alden thread posters!
