I would say a large chunk of the folks that appreciate Alden shoes do so for the cordovan and the shape and style of the shoe which are unique and beautiful in their own right.

Way to not get my point. Someone asked if a missing perf hole would make an Alden a second. I responded that it would make a Lobb a second, but that Aldens don't cost the same amount as Lobbs. The inference being that you can't expect that level of perfection in a $600 Alden.

Is that clear enough?

Maybe you should explain your point with more than a single sentence. Like your second post perhaps but without the dripping sarcasm.

It seemed clear to me.

Have a happy new year!

Interesting, I just checked my cigar lwb I got from The Shoemart in November and they aren't missing a single perforation.
