I also finally got to try on a pair of Alden's on the Modified last. Absolutely perfect last for me. Sadly, the Brown Chromexel V-Tip I received is going back to Shoe Mart. The stitching job is just brutal to the point that it looks like I am wearing two different style of shoe.
I did not think I would be buying any more non-shell shoes but after trying the Modifieds I think Moulded Shoe will be getting some of my business.
