You are missing my point. As the quote in my post indicated, m question was posed to this thread's esteemed Uncle who opined exactly the opposite of your view and the suggestion of my question. And as Mac has already expressed, people of goodwill can agree to disagree. quote name="BeSpiffington" url="/t/85589/the-official-alden-thread/58620#post_6561684"] Both are quite lovely shoes.
