    No offense meant, but why do we need another Alden MTO thread. The original thread was started with a Alden DC MTO (Whiskey Indy) & Leffot (Ravello captoe) why start another thread?

    I figured that since they were working with Mike from Epaulet at the moment I didnt want to clutter up the page. Since the one I started is only with DC I figured I would start a dedicated thread to it. It was mainly as a way for me to organize it in a format that I could frequent so I wouldn't have to dig and ask which idea was for which pre order, basically for organization reasons. No good?

    I just figured that I'd ask as we already have the Epaulet MTO Thread started by NYR & the Alden MTO Group Buy Thread by KG. Being the Alden hog that I am I'll prolly partake just figured I'd ask.

    If you need help let me know as I've had extensive contact with Kathy & she is great to work with. I'd be shocked to see an Alden DC #4 make-up, but it never hurts to ask for one & I'll prolly throw my thought's into your thread for a make-up or two. Thanks for taking point on this.

    I honestly can't remember anything other than a Kudu boot. And no shell, I think. If any though it would be cigar.

    Yeah, if it wasn't $525 (I think that's the price) I would have had a hard time stepping away... short point or not...

    All this modified last talk has certainly piqued my interest - can anyone comment how it fits on a flatter, low instep foot? I'm worried that the high arch may be incredibly uncomfortable.

    Can't comment on low instep and flat feet, but I really like the modified last. What other lasts do you typically wear?

    I have pretty flat feet and my modified last is a good fit

    edit: it doesn't fit as narrow as it would seem to fit
