    I almost made the same post myself. Seems self evident, eh?

    I'm still not sure how I feel about the eyelets, but I regret not ordering a pair to be able to decide in person. I'm an 11 if anyone decided against them.

    No, I know that. That's why I said to read back a few pages where they were publicly announced (and sold out) within two days.

    JCrew in TriBeCa. They're sold out.

    The Kudu order will go through, I'm sure. It's not as difficult to get as say Ravello shell. But I will say that I have quite a few suede Aldens (navy PTB, tan chukka, snuff PT boot, chocolate Modified PT boot, mocha plain cap toe Plaza, milkshake Indy). And yet I am still without any shell Aldens. The suede makeups work well for me. I like the textured, matte appearance of suede. It's visually more interesting to me than polished calf (maybe even shell) and works very well with casual clothing. Dare I say, though, that I wear my suede plain cap toe balmorals with a suit? There's a strong element of personal preference of course but don't short change suede as a shoe option.

    Does anyone happen to own this Jcrew make-up below and a few photos to share? Seems to be a calf upper with some heavy finishing and light bottom. Thanks

    Did you try calling the store? Reason I ask is because I called right after it was posted on this thread that they were sold out (just to make sure), and they had my size.

    I worked with an SA named Dee (very helpful and nice).

    I keep trying to convince myself to pick up some suede chukkas but haven't pulled the trigger. had LS clearance sheet been accurate once I got my hand son it, I would have the snuff and regular tan. better for my wallet that I only bought two pr off them lol..

    I'm sure some suede will land here, I did see a couple on moulded's site that caught my eye, luckily modified works for me [​IMG]
