1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    I am not sure how "unintentional" the code is. Especially given the fact that it works for some pairs and not others it seems like they are trying to work through some current and expected inventories

    These are a must have. Wow. When is the next pre-order on these!!!??!!! The light edge trim and commando soles make this so necessary.

    I do appreciate the Color 8 with Antique edging, but I am not sure if I can warrant these since I already have the Color 8 Indy.

    Exactly why I am selling (c'mon people!!) my #8 Indys. I prefer the tankers.

    about a week ago, someone shared photos of a epaulet natty cxl lwb with screwed up right shoes, where the uppers and soles were skewed on an angle.

    these are from the recent jcrew "sale," also right shoe:

    ok.....so I am on the preorder list for the brown CXL tanker/NST from Leathersoul but just saw where Unionmande has the same in natural CXL.....I do not have any tanker/NST boots and no natural CXL.....would you pass on the natural and pick up a brixton style short-wing boot or get both the brown and natural CXL tanker/NST boot?

    keep thinking...keep thinking...I'm sure you can convince yourself. It's amazing what I've convinced myself of when it comes to Aldens.

    I hope someone notices your signature. That is bargain basement prices for those 8.5Cs

    I wish they were 8.5D. No way I could wear a C in a bal.

    I see what you mean. I would just like to be a fly on the wall there one day to see the clowns who are responsible in action.

    I think you give them too much credit. The codes or low prices are usually corrected within a day or so, which leads me to believe that they are not intentional. Furthermore, from what I can tell, they don't have much trouble unloading their Alden inventory, with some makeups persistently backordered.

    I also don't think that they are aware that there is a whole forum full of Alden arbitrageurs poised to jump on such mispricings, they just don't seem to be that "on point" based on the all the description errors and photo snafus.


    Not alden related, but I saw this and had to share. Plenty of denim dialog already takingplace in this thread anyway, so I dont' feel to bad about it. As they say, if you can't beat em, contribute to the problem.

    Are these not the most comically oversized rolled cuffs that you have ever seen?

    At the same time, I have to respect that he is not afraid to march to the beat of his own drum.

    I'm sure he's part of a WAYWT thread somewhere with thousands of posts and likes.

    If he really is wearing them like that, then yes, comical yet self-confident . . . but he also might be at a vintage or thrift shop, trying on a great selvedge find that he would then shorten after purchase. Just sayin'!

    Again, talk to your friendly neighborhood JC personal stylist and see if you can lobby for them to honor the prior price less than 24 hours after the change was made. YMMV, but if you ask around enough, you stand a chance of finding a flexible stylist who is glad to get you the reduced price for the sake of their sales numbers and commission. It can't hurt to ask.

    If it was a normal 20% discount that happened to apply to aldens by mistake I would do it. But the fact that it was meant solely for cardholders makes me wonder how I should frame the question without being pigeon-holed into signing up for a card (which by the way guys is a bad idea).
