    Personal opinion but the J Crew x Alden is too dressy for me. I prefer the work boot look. I could wear these to an Oi show

    Those are sweet!
    Look very similar to the Wolverine 744's

    Thanks for the info Dave. Your boots are awesome. I'm looking for something in a similar colour myself.

    Richard, I'm a huge fan of the sweater.

    No way. I would never pay $700+ for Wolverine or Allen Edmonds (they make it). I'd go for the Alden x J.Crew cap-toed boot instead: http://www.jcrew.com/mens_category/shoes/AldenForJCrew/PRDOVR~20853/20853.jsp With coupons (they work sometimes, despite J.Crew's claims to the contrary), you can get a decent amount off.

    I like it as well. Apparently, not a lot of people do. Plenty in stock despite the sale.

    Richard, I could see myself wearing it to dinner/bar with jeans or chinos or even carhartts after a day ice climbing or skiing or any winter outdoor activity for that matter. To me it looks comfy and warm with the right amount of ruggedness.

    IMO they are 2 totally different boots, starting with the color. The J.Crew captoe's are color 8 while the 744's are a rich dark brown. I think at first glance the J Crew's appear a bit more dressy but I have seen pics of the 744's with a pin stripe suit and they look stunning! I think both boots are fantastic. Having said that I sure would have liked to get my hands on the Madison in brown and/or black.

    Whoops, didn't realize the 744 wasn't #8, also. Is Allen Edmonds making the Madison? I believe they're making the 744 for Wolverine.
