    It was a code for J Crew card holders... perhaps that's why it worked for me?

    That is a great price for new shell. I really like the shoes. They would fill a void in my shoe collection too. Wear in good health. :slayer:

    Just got my shoes back from the cobbler - bought these guys from our beloved YouTube-using mediahound. I had a thin topy put on and had the edgetrim changed to match my Marlows :slayer:

    I like what you did with them. Not sure about the laces, but that's just me, I'm a traditionalist. :)

    Haha figured people would say that - yeah I took them off because they were really floppy, any idea how I might be able to get them stiffened up again? The purple is a little funky :nodding: but I'm feeling happy so why not? Haha :)

    Where do you get the 30% off code? Do you have to have a J.Crew card? Is it worth signing up for card?

    Yes I do... While I am typically dead-set against getting these types of promotional credit cards, J Crew made it too attractive for me to pass up. At the time of another shell purchase, they offered me the card, with 30% discount on my purchase at the time, and a $50 gift certificate bonus for every $500 that I spend (ongoing) ... so I went for it. As a card member, they send out special promotions just for card members, like I received for this purchase where I could take a 30% discount on any item purchased, whereas their general promotion is only 25% and not available on everything (and it appears not on Aldens). So at the end of the, if I buy something for another $40 bucks at some point, I will receive a $50 gift certificate and those new shells I just bought will have actually cost me $410...LOL... That's a pretty good deal... So I would recommend the J Crew Card, if you like their offerings... it really does offer some additional value... And I also noticed those cadets are no longer available... For once I got the timing right... LOL...

    I like the whole thing. Yes on the edge trim, yes on the purple laces.
