1. I'd like to announce that animated avatars are now available again. You'll have to reload, but they are once more possible.

    We've been doing a ton of work behind the scenes. The site load speed was already under 1/2 of what Huddler's was, on average, and we installed cloudflare, which means that the site should be even faster. A ton more will go on in the weeks and months to come, and some things will be more visibile, and some less.

    Cheers,

    Fok.

    No... and it appears to be a generic code for all card members (and I suspect it requires you to use your J Crew card to checkout)... The code is CARDSTYLE. You should have received a promo email, unless you opted out for those kind of communications?

    I see the price of J.Crew's Alden's cap toe boots increased $22 since the beginning of the month.

    Thanks! I need to check my account settings. Perhaps I did opt out. Looks like most calf LWB are back-ordered until August, 2013.

    They certainly will - I've dealt with that issue before. I currently have an outstanding order for those same boots @ 50% off lol :nodding:

    A newbie question are the Alden's made for Brooks Brothers made on the same last as the regular Aldens? Thanks in advance.

    typically, they are different. BB versions have their own unique Alden lasts.

    Thank you and everyone else for the kind comments. I had originally wanted to try this myself but... the cobbler offered to do it for free, so why not? :)
