For Modified, visit Moulded Shoe in NYC. (I know, a whole continent away). TSM has seconds in Modified & some other shops have the odd pair.I went to the trunk show at B+M earlier this month, and as Misterg12 noted it was sort of like an open house. There was a table of the latest Alden stock on display but in just one size (not mine). I had secretly hoped the Alden rep would show up with a semi-trailer full of the various lasts in all sizes so I could finally try on the elusive 379X and Modified, but I guess parking was too limited for that . It was a pleasant atmosphere with people dropping by, and I did try on some B+M boots in Grant and Plaza, which I hadn't had a chance to try out yet, though I ended up buying a pair of longwings in tried and true Barrie. I love the earthiness of dark brown suede, and the free shoe trees and chocolates with each purchase helped the decision!

Brogue, has a bunch of 379x makeups. They’re in the SF area if you ever get down there.
At least you know Barrie works.
