    I've read some info on various thread, but had a follow up...

    Is the brown chomexcel on the JCREW indys LIGHTER than the usual 403s? Or are they identical. For some reason, the jcrew color looks better, but maybe its my bad vision deceiving me.

    That's strange. I ordered the #8 captoe back in August and the estimated delivery was stated as November. I didn't get charged till the boots were shipped about 10 days ago. Have they changed their policy?

    Different chromexcel batches may have variations, but fundamentally the J Crew chromexcel Indy is the same as the regular chromexcel indy, with the exception of the stitching pattern on the sides and back of the boot

    Don't worry about shell in rain - feed them some reno and paste wax every once in a while and you are good to go. As a seattleite I have some experience with this... minor bumps even out with time.

    Nah, they can't have a permanent charge and hold your money. They charge when it is shipped. The charge you see might be a temporary authorization.

    Great thing the J. Crew promo code works for Alden Shoes [​IMG]. Too bad J. Crew won't ship Aldens internationally [​IMG] - thought I could order a nice pair of suede Chukkas.

    Guess I'll have to pay full price when my travels take me to NYC in January.

    But I am happy for you guys in the US! [​IMG]

    I had posted a question earlier, if I should return the tobacco LWB from Jcrew and 86 the idea of the snuff suede LWB and get a some cordovan LWB or Boot. Say Cigar or Ravello... Thoughts?

    It's just a temporary hold. It'll go away soon and the actual charge won't come through until they ship.
    I ordered those #8 LWBs on crepe sole a few weeks ago with an ETA of Dec 5..
    The pending charge hung around for a week or so but it's gone now.
