    I think J Crew would not hesitate to offer you a discount. I'd say 15-20% which would make this whole episode a blessing.

    I have the same boots and love them. Enjoy them.

    It's pretty realistic since they started their online system. My tankers took I think a month or so over the alotted time but other preorders have gotten there on a timely fashion

    Is this a parody post? I can't even tell any more.

    A wonderful and insightful post by a wise and sagacious Uncle. On behalf of the Nephews, I thank you.

    Yes, my Cigar Straight Tips, which I received from TSM last week, had this card attached to it as well.

    Sometimes, if you need to have a laugh read this thread. Drama, like life, is composed of two elements, comedy and tragedy.

    Thank you sir, I'm flattered. However, in my eyes there is but one "Uncle".

    Jortuna, I have these J.Crew #8 pct boots and I love them. They are as sleek as a Barrie lasted boot can be, with its close heel. I am in the camp of "keep them and get a discount". As others have said, one wear outside and you wouldn't know the diff. Just irritating that J.Crew would do that without any communication to you about the condition.

    Quoting my own photo in order to ask a question...

    I don't wear these boots as much as I would like because I don't love the sole. It's double leather with a Cats Paw toppy and as I bought them well used, it's just not very comfortable... So I decided I should have them resoled but with something "wacky"... Maybe.

    So lets call this a chance to see something new...

    Do I...

    -Go commando? (Sorry for the pun) and if so, which one?
    - Go crepe? (It is comfortable)

    This last is my favorite right now...

    - Go Vibram? Yes... Vibram. Probably black if I can find it but maybe even tan like you see on the LS conservation boot or some Unionmade make ups

    What do The Gentlmen suggest?

    P.S. No silly colors please. My definition of "wacky" does have boundaries :nodding:

    I've been wanting to resole my 403s wit the honey vibram. I feel it would also look pretty bad ass on your aged #8
