    This isn't a one-time use code, right? Just tried using it on the cap-toe #8s, no luck.

    It worked for me on a single pair of Alden boots. I registered online for the card, but paid with my Amex. No problems. Free shipping too right now.

    That's a great composition. Permission to do something similar? I've been neglecting my deerbone

    Not sure whether to congratulate or damn to hell whoever took the 11D Ravello Indy from Frans Boone... God I hate waiting for pay days, this happens to me every time. I guess it's back to the old drawing board of waiting for the Day Tripper pre-order to come through, lord knows when that's going to happen.

    I've gone online and chatted with a sales rep and they said it was only 10% off. The info on the website says the same. Is there another way to access your deal? The promotion code didn't work either. Thanks...

    Could anybody comment on Alden PTB sizing versus the Allen Edmonds Leeds? I tried on a burgundy cordovan Leeds today in size 8D and it fit well, but the finish of the cordovan just isn't as nice (to me) as Alden's Color #8.

    I tried searching the thread, but I didn't find a definitive answer.

    Worked for me after signing up for a card. Yes, 25% off.

    Hope they didn't put the kibosh on the whole thing :/

    I size up a half a size for the Leeds. Alden 990 -> 10D and Leeds -> 10.5D... Alden's 990 is head and shoulders above the AE Leeds in comfort and look. Occasionally though, the AE burgundy shell Leeds sometimes has a really nice dark brownish patina that I love. The other side of that though is that I've seen that same AE burgundy shell with an almost light red to pinkish patina which looks horrible. I'd pay a little more for the Alden PTB.

    Are J. Crew's #8 captoe boots actually on Barrie? In their photo of it from below, it looks like it, but from the side, not so much.

    Yes, all of their Aldens are on the Barrie/TruBalance lasts.
