    Gosh darn it all to Timbuktu. I saw the promo code, went to the J Crew website, and almost bought some #8 cap toe boots. Would have done it even without the code except I remembered I've got the Leffot Naval Boot on pre-order. I've seen so many wonderful boots here lately that its been hard to resist not buying every possible Alden boot make-up pictured, or even rumoured to exist. Is it just me, or has anyone else had these shell cordovan cravings?

    Eyeing those suede longwings with crepe sole on j crew's site. I hear crepe is really comfortable, but what's the consensus on how long it lasts? I'm in NYC so I do a lot of walking. Just wonder if its worth it, assuming I got the discount.

    How does the Plaza last fit? Narrower than Barrie, I suppose? I wear a 10D on Barrie, so would I be 10E on Plaza probably?

    You think increasing width one size (9 D to 9 E) is more reliable than increasing length (9 D to 9.5 D)?

    Not my cup of tea, but if somebody is likes the George Boot, Orvis currently has them on sale down from $498 to $354. It looks like there are only a couple sizes available though (10 and 12).

    10d in Barrie fits me perfect and I just got my first plaza in a 10.5d and it is also a great fit.

    Did any one know that Ravello is actually the name of a town in southern Italy, along the Amalfi coast? I wonder if that locale inspired the name.
