    ^^ I prefer AE laces. They stay tied longer. That is usually one of the first orders of business when I get new Aldens - swap out the laces.

    UPS stopped into my waiting room to deliver my grail Ravello LWBs today while I was with a patient. Sure was difficult to keep listening to what the poor patient had to say as I held back my tears of joy and relief

    Btw, please let me add another hearty +1 for Kathy and Joe at DC. They sent me yet another Alden shoehorn, as well as not one, but two extra pairs of Alden laces. Please let me know if anyone needs an extra pair of Alden laces. I'd be glad to send them along your way!

    All the talk about JCrew and its return policy reminded me that I've been meaning to ask our thread about the following situation I've been having with my JCrew suede LWBs:

    I bought the suede LWBs back in Feb (with the help of my favorite JCrew stylist's clandestine 25% "price reduction":) and, shortly after beginning to wear them in the spring, noticed--first on the right shoe and then later on the left--that horizontal lines would develop where the shoes would crease due to walking. My initial thought was, "Hey, shoes crease. They're shoes, not Rembrandts after all." However, these "creases" are extensive enough that it comes to appear as though there is no suede material in those sections.

    I can sometimes use my suede brush and eraser to try to minimize the horizontal lines forming, but they always come back. What further leads me to believe I should look into this is that the pics you other JCrew suede lwb owners post always feature pristine looking suede on the vamp. Do I have a defective shoe and, if so, would it be worth it to talk to JCrew about a replacement?

    Thank you tifosi!
    Thank you Steel. I hope you get them as soon as possible. Seeing as we wear the same size, please let me know if you'd ever be up for trading or selling stuff from your collection!

    Honestly, ravello LWB may be Alden's best single model (especially with these dark brown edged soles Alden DC orders)
