Crepe soles are not the best looking. But these are my most comfortable aldens. They are also ninja quiet on hardwood and tile.

This is probably true. I've never worn my walnut Strands with jeans, for example.

I have thought about pairing my whiskey balmoral wingtips with jeans. Jeans, blazer and bals seems like a pretty common combo

It's not cheap but color to me definitely looks off.
Color on mine is pretty close to this photo:

I agree with you 100%. I'm waiting on NY to do a restock (pushed back another 8 months again until July 2013) so i can begin to do just that.

I'm fixated on the idea of getting a black shell medallion cap toe boot. does anyone carry this model or am I out of luck?

JGilbert has everything you want except the cap.

Size down 1/2 like you would on Barrie/Trubalance. Tried on the Modified for the first time today. Loved the last, just not the boot I tried on.

No, I think he means size down 1/2 "just like" you do for Barrie/Trubalance.  that's what I do and the fit is good.

You should be your Barrie size on the Modified. Everyone's feet are different, but the Modified might be the best fitting shoe I've ever tried on. I've never been able to bring myself to buy a pair because they look like clown shoes. The black, orthopedic heel also gives them a geriatric flare. However, my views are mellowing as I see some of the more recent make-ups which mask its banana-esque shape.
