Sounds like someone with some guilt issues...nod[1].gif

I really do love my Aldens and they get more wear than anything else (I have on my Cigar Indys today biggrin.gif). Since Jan of 2011 i've bought 8 pair of Aldens but the rarer shells are topping out over $700 (and I paid $712 for the Cigar Indys) and even at that they are becoming difficult to obtain with almost instant sell-outs of special order make-ups.

The AE's actually are a little more comfortable. Both of these AE makeups were special order so maybe the quality is a little higher than standard AE.

Woah. Navy shell brogue sounds amazing.

Those look really nice. I'd have to try on the modified last before I could purchase something like those.

Just wanted to relay a good experience: Stopped by the Moulded Shoe yesterday in NYC on 39th to look at the Modified Last. I have a very flat foot so wasn't sure if this last would do me well.

Ron spent a good deal of time with me explaining how the last is shaped, who its meant for, and how it might work for my foot.

Surprisingly, even without my orthotic insert, the last was very comfy and provided very good support in the arch.

There were no shoes/boots that I was a huge fan of, but I would definitely consider this last in the future.
If you're in the NYC area, I'd recommend a visit to see if this last could do you well.

Those are ban worthy, not just from the B&S forum, but from the forum, period. That's a commercial post. It doesn't matter if you are making $20 or $20K.

Lol, seriously. So annoyingly hard to try to source Tankers IMO. But Yenni/Seattle came through for me :)
