    I like those. Did you get Barrie or Leydon? 10E in Leydon is available...

    Not even Alden itself can provide shoes that look unworn and pristine. Those shoes look fine to me. Nothing that some Mac Method and a bit of black paste wax / cordovan cream can't fix.

    Alden Tan Calfskin WTB with commando sole - J. Gilbert.

    I promised RTP I'd post a recent photo of these … 8 months new. Worn 1 to 2 times a week.

    Excellent choice! This is a great all-weather travel shoe as well!

    You're a bit over the top on all 3 "issues"

    My Alden suede PTB from J Crew came in the same tan J Crew box. For about $440, you got an excellent pair of shells with very minor scuffs or signs of trying on. If you want perfection, order pairs from Adam and A of C. If you want the flexibility of the J Crew return policy, I'd say you should accept this product as is especially if there is nothing wrong with it that some minor Mac love wouldn't "fix." I do understand where you are coming from, and J Crew will certainly honor the return. I'd be careful with asking for an exchange for another pair in the same size... that karma may produce something worse [​IMG] Good luck my friend!
