    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.
