If you're speaking about the latest offering at LS, I'm inclined to agree. They certainly aren't calling out to me.

X_quest- looks fine to me, don't see anything out of the ordinary there.

Different strokes I guess, but I am not a fran, and I usually like heavy soles.

Sorry, not to me! I love Tricker's as much as Alden's. . .own two pairs of RTW, and two MTO's, with two more MTO's on their way to me. Can't wait to get them in the next few weeks. Especially love the flexibility of the MTO program, and the thick, wide soles.

Don't look like clown shoes to me, went on the ls site and tried to find what you were looking for.

'Wonder if the stitching issues showing up on some Aldens are related to the use of synthetic or synthetic-blended thread, because that stuff is brittle and prone to breaking as compared to certain all natural fibers. And if I remember correctly from home ec class a thousand years ago, the thread tension setting on a sewing machine has to be set correctly to prevent stitching failure. Maybe Mr. DWFII will kindly chime in?
