    Ordered the snuff suede LWBs from J. Crew. They will be my first pair of Aldens so I'm pretty excited.

    I wanna take advantage of the 30% off sales and pull the trigger on a pair of JCrew Alden. Can you guys promise not to tell MoL? I signed up in his No Purchase Club till mid December. :uhoh:

    I would never wear a pair of tan bucks, unless I had to go to a warm-weather event where they were appropriate. I almost never have to go to such events, so I don't own a pair. Yet I'm considering getting a pair from J. Crew because at that price, you know, just in case ... Has my Alden sickness really reached such depraved depths? :embar:

    Was looking at their camel suede buck today. Time to snag them if you can.

    I grew up wearing the suede buck. I jumped all over the Alden for J Crew version with this sale!

    I never wear black, but I couldn't pass up the longwings at this price. At least they fill one of the tiny holes I have left in my shoe wardrobe.

    This is actually my first post on this forum, although I have been lurking for quite some time... I just wanted to thank all the contributors to this thread as I was able to properly downsize in the trubalance last on my first try and find the perfect fit for my Indys from Leffot (http://leffot.com/shop/alden-x-leffot-405c-pre-order/). On top of that, because of the Jcrew 30% off code that I was alerted to today, I was also able to use a my $100 gift card and get the #8 captoe for under $400 including tax.... This has been a great week to say the least, so I just wanted to say thanks!

    I'm only seeing longwings, boots, and bucks (9 different pairs total). No chukkas. Wish they would've kept the natty longwings or boots up.

    I saw snuff suede chukkas up there a few hours go. Did they get taken down?

    EDIT: nvm I still see the chukkas listed on their website
