    Yep! I'll hopefully be getting those in my hands next month.

    It may be new but it's in the works.

    Regina calf was used on the black version of the LSxSE "Conservation Boot." I'm a fan. It should make for a nice wingtip boot.

    I really like those. I was in Alden DC today talking about this exact shoe with Joe. Doesn't sound like they are going to do it again anytime soon.

    It truly is personal taste. My comments apply only to boots as that's what I wear almost exclusively. I prefer my boots to look "worn" as I dress mostly casually --- denim and chinos. To me, they have more character when they don't look new. Just like raw denim, the creases and scuffs on my boots are mine and reflect my use. I have a few dressier boots that I try to keep looking as new as possible for when I have to wear suits, etc. Otherwise, I only treat them (with Reno or VC) minimally to make sure they don't get too dry.

    I actually prefer the stitching of the Indy on a fuller last. I would do an NST boot on the Plaza over an Indy

    NST is high on my list. I have to admit that I was focused on exotics. Looking at #8 has provided me with sine clarity. I really wish the Leffot pre order wasn't at the same time as my LS boots. Debating on the antique vs dark edgetrim.

    Can you apply this $50 to preorders? How does J Gilbert preorder system work in this case?

    I agree. I would have liked a NST on a nice, sleek last. Couldn't find one. Settled for Barrie with the Leffot version. However...if a plaza lasted does come up I might still entertain it as it will have a black edge most likely and be dressier.

    Hello Everyone:

    I am writing in the hopes that some of the more knowledgeable members of this forum can assist me...

    I am looking for a pair of Alden boots that were available at J Crew...my size in no longer available and they do not have any plans to restock this particular style...is anyone aware of a style that is similar ? I love the color and the simple toe ( cap toe would be fine as well!)

    If anyone has a pair of these in a size 8.5 (or even a 9), I would be willing to take them off your hands and pay you handsomely for parting with them...additionally, I would pay a premium for anyone that has them NIB in my size...

    Thanks in advance...here's a link and an image...

    All of my Barrie shoes and boots are 9D. I have AE's 1 last in 9.5D, 10C, and 10D. 10C is the best. I really like AE's 1 last.
