1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Send them an email and they send you a PayPal invoice. VAT will be deducted but shipping is 35 euros plus probably a little (~$40ish) for Fedex brokerage / fees

    Nice thanks. $1500 is a bit out of my budget. And to think even when yen was weak these were crazy expensive.

    Thanks! That's a cool spot. Right where all the yagata-bune shops are along the Kanda-gawa. Will have to check it out next time in the area.

    There are several Japanese manufactures that make Modified Last inspired (or knockoff) shoes

    MIYAGI KOGYO has a line of MTO shoes that uses a Modified Last inspired 'Oblique' Last, and they have a Chukka Model (model MD-07)

    Michael Andrews Bespoke
    20 Clinton St., New York, NY 10002,USA  TEL 010-1-212-677-1755

    hope this info helps! :fonz:

    Thank you so much! I just visited Moulded in NYC yesterday out of interest and after being measured, it turns out I have a modified last. When I put a pair of Aldens on, a pair of suede oxfords with a new ruit was like heaven and I immediately bought a pair (at vast expense). All these years and I never had the right fit...Thanks again!

    Nutcracker,

    Is Pegman one of the brands that emulates the modified last? They always look like the Modified Last in pictures.

    Pegman is an original brand of Lacota, the distributor of Alden. They're positioned as sort of a lil bro' of Alden, but made in China (with handsewn welting)

    Supposed to be inspired by good old American shoes from the 1950's.
    I think they're closer in shape/fitting to the 379x military last, but with tighter waist like a modified last.

    I think these look more explicitly like modified last

    REGAL shoes...

    another one from MIYAGI KOGYO, actually looks quite appealing

    I forgot about those Regal banana last shoes. They were in a recent Men's EX "bookazine" or a recent issue of LAST (I can't remember which) and I forgot to see if they were available on Rakuten. In the same magazine I remember several shoes reminding me of the modified last
