    The vamp in those tan ones look like they're hemorrhaging leather

    In speaking with Alden retailers, I am left with the impression - at least from their vantage point - that men wear the modified only if they have to. This appears to be true for some - but not all.

    A few years back I inquired of a model on the modified and the retailer - a learned retailer - once he learned a thing or two about my Alden collection (on various non-modified lasts), stopped just short of prohibiting me from buying it. I did not end up buying it. I've always remembered his response as curious if nothing else.

    Some really seem to like it -whether the fit, or looks, or both. That is great.

    On looks alone, it is not for me.

    You are never too young for tassels. I bought my first pair when I was 25. They are definitely more mature than pennies, but there are always occasions for a little bit extra maturaity.

    Just received a pair of J Crew tan LWBs that I snagged for $300 new. I already have an identical pair, but I can't resist a good deal. Finding a diamond in the rough is now more satisfying than buying at full retail, which has almost lost me anyway given where prices are at and the number of pairs I have.

    Stunning! I'm surprised the whiskey cordovan is so dark in color.

    This is why some ramadan-like guidelines are needed if anything more than a #8 cap toe is going on my feet. And already that ravello is calling...

    I have a pair of Alden 403 Ibdy boots and a pair of 404 Kudu boots that are
    about 2 months old.

    Both pairs, no matter how tight I tie my laces have tongues that slide way over.

    Any trick to stop this from happening? Di they eventually break in and not
    do it?

    If it makes you feel any better, it was a very light #8 and unlined. I like the dark 8 myself
