    From labeling these boots "bal" to labeling various leathers chromexcel when they probably aren't, it's hard to rely on J Crew labeling or descriptions. When buying Aldens from them, just be prepared to send/take what you get back if you don't like it, they take anything back

    Looking at the cigar LHS, but my only size reference is my recently acquired barrie chukkas...should I size up a half?

    The LHS is on the Van last. Most wear the same size in the Barrie and the Van. I wear 9D Barrie and 9C Van.

    TSM now has the Captoe boot in black shell and 8 shell on the Grant for $677.

    A handful of weeks ago it was at 617, then went to 647 for a short while, and now 677.

    Interesting ....

    Between the description and knowing that they had the brown suede with the red brick sole made up and available in some B&M stores, I was relatively sure they put up the wrong picture.

    I'm curious to know who's managing their website. They really seem to be screwing up a lot lately.

    If you have a high instep you may have to size up a width to get a comfortable fit. The vamp can be rather tight where the strap so I take an E instead of the my usual D width. Happy hunting.
