What were the mods? Changing to brass hardware? If so, mind saying who did the work and if you're happy with it? I have a couple of pair that I'm thinking about having the eyelets changed.

Yes, in a way.  The hardware is already brass--I just exposed it.  I carefully scraped away the enamel and buffed the hardware with an abrasive felt bob.  It's not for the faint of heart, perhaps, but I am very pleased with the results.

Anybody have a pic of the new Alden x LS shortwing in color 8 w/ antique edge? I'm debating replacing my cxl PTBs w them... But I'll be at a lack for plain brown shoes so I may withhold.
