    $100 JCrew Alfred Sargent Shoes

    Went to the JCrew store today. They had blue suede double monks and cap toe boots by Alfred Sargent for J Crew selling at $100.
    On clearance, sticker states $399, but salesmen were telling me the shoes and ties were 75% off.
    So I got the blue suede double monks for $100 (and some shorts for $8.50). Scattered sizes

      $100 JCrew Alfred Sargent Shoes



      Forgot to post a pic. My guess is you'd find them in several J Crew Men's Shop stores and perhaps general J Crew stores that carry men's dress shoes(?). Not sure though.

      Edit: color is a little darker than in person

        Those are beautiful shoes. Looks like the deal of the century at $100. Suede makes me nervous though...

          I agree - and I'll point out that suede is much more durable and forgiving of rough treatment than people give it credit for.

            Do you suppose different grades of suede perform differently? I never though of it really. There is certainly a big difference in the wear factor of my AE's versus some Calibrate leather shoes or something similar.

              Probably, though the difference I notice in suede is that more expensive suede tends to be softer, more pliable. Either way, I spray all of my suede with nano protector and keep a suede brush and eraser on hand and that seems to keep it looking nice.

                I wonder if that is an in-store only deal? The website just says 40% off? I'm in Chicago, and I highly doubt they're any size 10 double monks left at any of the JCrew stores here. Great pick up for you though!

                  There's a difference. I have AE, Meermin, and Carmina suede. Carmina is far and away softer, more pliable, and more plush. Really want more of it. I am guessing Alfred Sargent suede is on the same level as Carmina

                  Also, suede is a lot harder wearing than calf in my experience

                    Called around to a few stores but could only find them at 50% off $400. Which store did you go to?

                      Can anyone speak to how the last/sizing compares to say, AE 5 last shoes? Or any other reference/sizing point? I'm really tempted to pull the trigger on those blue ones, but since they're final sale, I'm hesitant to spend the cash on them without being a little more comfortable about how they fit. I'm a true 8D is most shoes (to include most AEs).

                        if you talk to customer service, they'll waive final sale. that's what i did. have 8D's on the way in the blue...but i am a 7.5D in all AE's.

                          I went to the Lenox Mall location in Atlanta.
                          Smooth leather (e.g. Calfskin) generally has a greater variance of quality than suede does. So I normally wouldn't shell out as much for suede as I would for smooth leather.
                          The suede on these is very soft and also happen to be very "short"/low to the shoe like a low rise carpet.
